Christopher Borgesen MS, OTR, FACHE, who is vice president of operations at Schneider Regional Medical Center, 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,” said Deborah J. Bowen FACHE, CAE, president and CEO of American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE). “By becoming an ACHE Fellow and earning the distinction of board certification from ACHE, healthcare leaders demonstrate a commitment to excellence in serving their patients and the community.”
Fellow status represents achievement of the highest standard of professional development. In fact, only 8,866 healthcare executives hold this distinction. To obtain Fellow status, candidates must fulfill multiple requirements, including meeting academic and experiential criteria, earning continuing education hours, demonstrating professional/community involvement, and passing a comprehensive examination.
Fellows also are committed to ongoing professional development and undergo recertification every three years.

Comissiong has been working with the Puerto Rico chapter of American College of Healthcare Executives to expand opportunities to healthcare professionals in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
