Let’s Connect: SFHEF Spotlight

The healthcare industry has evolved over the years and the South Florida Healthcare Executive Forum, the local chapter of the American College of Healthcare Executives, continually strives to improve healthcare delivery by providing opportunities for the professional development of its members. As I look back on my years as a member, I believe that joining the Forum was one of the most important moves I made early in my career.

I started my career as an auditor at a national public accounting firm and soon joined the healthcare audit group at the firm. While in that position, I spent my days learning about the intricacies of accounting at hospitals and other healthcare organizations. At the time, I had no idea how this experience would forever impact my career. Soon after leaving the national accounting firm, I worked at several regional accounting firms always ending up working with healthcare clients.
It later became clear that forces beyond my control pushed me toward working with healthcare industry clients and I came to accept that this was meant to be. Once I came to this realization, I began making every effort to educate myself on healthcare industry issues and developments and decided to join healthcare industry organizations.
The Forum was the first such organization that I joined, and I soon found myself on the Board of Directors serving as the Communications Chair and later as Treasurer. Through involvement with the Forum I have made lifelong friendships; met influential industry executives; learned new skills at educational events and enjoyed networking at many social events.
I invite you to join me as a Forum member and to get involved and to participate in this leading healthcare organization.
Until next time, I’m Jeffrey Kramer … Let’s Connect!
