Stephanie Jenkins earns top healthcare management credential

Stephanie Jenkins, MHA, Vice President, Operations and Strategy, Methodist Health, passed the Board of Governors Examination in Healthcare Management and recently became a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives (FACHE). As a Fellow of the nation's leading professional society for healthcare leaders, this credential is the gold standard for board certification in healthcare management.

“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 CEO of 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.”

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.

Linda E. White, CEO, Methodist Health, commented, “We congratulate Mrs. Jenkins on achieving Fellow status, which represents achievement of the highest standard of professional development. She is one of 9,100 healthcare executives in the U.S. to hold this distinction. Stephanie's achievement as a FACHE is a testament to her commitment to healthcare leadership.”
