CHICAGO, Ill. — Susan L. Glover FACHE, senior vice president & chief quality/integrity officer for Adventist HealthCare in Gaithersburg, MD, recently became a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives, the nation’s leading professional society for healthcare leaders.
“The healthcare management field plays a vital role in providing high-quality care to the people in our communities, which makes having a standard of excellence promoted by a professional organization critically important,” says Deborah J. Bowen, FACHE, CAE, president and chief executive officer of ACHE. “By becoming an ACHE Fellow and earning the distinction of board certification, healthcare leaders demonstrate a commitment to excellence in serving their patients.”
