James Brannon, FACHE, vice president of human resources at Atlantic General
Hospital, recently became a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare
Executives (ACHE), the nation’s leading professional society for
Fellow status represents achievement of the highest standard of professional
development. In fact, only 5,400 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/community
involvement. Fellows are also committed to ongoing professional development
and undergo recertification every three years.
Brannon is privileged to use the FACHE credential, which signifies board
certification in healthcare management and ACHE Fellow status.
“ACHE is a premier professional society for healthcare managers,
and I am very pleased to have been able to achieve the Fellow designation
from such a prominent organization,” said Brannon.
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 known for its prestigious credentialing and educational programs and
its annual Congress on Healthcare Leadership, which draws more than 4,000
participants each year.
