Dear ACHE Family: 

The past several weeks have been overwhelming, particularly for those directly impacted by the hurricanes. Most recently, Hurricane Irma has roared through Florida, wreaking havoc and destruction on our communities. In these challenging times, I know you share my enormous respect for our colleagues and their caregiving teams who battled the storms to serve those who needed their assistance. Now, thousands of caregivers facing damage to their homes and lives, need our help.   
If you would like to support the relief effort, the Florida Hospital Association has established the FHA Hospital Employee Assistance Fund to directly assist hospital employees who suffered significant property loss or damage during Hurricane Irma. All administrative services are being provided in-kind so that 100 percent of your donation will assist those in the FEMA-designated disaster areas. 
For more information or to make a donation, click here. With your support, our members, colleagues and their caregiving teams will know they are not alone and that we are here to help. Thank you for any support you can provide. 
Deborah J. Bowen, FACHE, CAE
