Medical Center of Lewisville CNO Earns Top Healthcare Management Credential
October 24, 2011
Lynn Benjamin, FACHE, BSN, MBA, NEA-BC, Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer at Medical Center of Lewisville, recently became a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives, the nation’s leading professional society for healthcare leaders.
"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," says Thomas C. Dolan, PhD, FACHE, CAE, president and chief executive officer of ACHE. "By becoming an ACHE Fellow and simultaneously earning board certification from ACHE, healthcare leaders can show that they are committed to providing high-quality service to their patients and community."
Fellow status represents achievement of the highest standard of professional development. In fact, only 8,500 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.
Benjamin is privileged to use the FACHE credential, which signifies board certification in healthcare management and ACHE Fellow status. For more information regarding the FACHE credential, contact the ACHE Division of Membership at (312) 424-9400 or email@example.com, or visit www.ache.org/FACHE.
