Hinsdale, IL – James A. Today, administrative director, facilities, at Adventist Hinsdale Hospital, recently became a fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives, the nation’s leading professional society for healthcare leaders. Fellow status represents achievement of the highest standard of professional development. In fact, only 7,500 healthcare executives hold this distinction.
To obtain fellow status, candidates must fulfill multiple requirements, including passing a comprehensive examination, meeting academic and experiential criteria, earning continuing education credits and demonstrating professional and community involvement. Fellows are also committed to ongoing professional development and undergo recertification every three years.
Today, a Downers Grove resident raised in Hinsdale, has worked at Adventist Hinsdale Hospital for six years.
“Because healthcare management ultimately affects the people in our communities, it is critically important to have a standard of excellence promoted by a professional organization,” said Thomas C. Dolan, president and chief executive officer of Chicago-based ACHE. “By becoming an ACHE fellow and simultaneously earning board certificate from ACHE, healthcare leaders can show that they are committed to providing high-quality service to their patients and community.”
The American College of Healthcare Executives is an international professional society of more than 30,000 healthcare executives who lead our nation’s hospitals, healthcare systems and other healthcare organizations. ACHE is also known for its journal, the Journal of Healthcare Management, and magazine, Healthcare Executive, as well as ground-breaking research and career development and public policy programs.
