Symmetry Healthcare President & CEO Earns Top Healthcare Management Credential

PRINCETON, NJ, February 22, 2010 — Guy P. Evans, MPH, FACHE, Founder & CEO of Symmetry Healthcare Strategies, LLC  recently became a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives, the nation’s leading professional society for healthcare leaders and is now privileged to use the FACHE credential, which signifies board certification in healthcare management and ACHE Fellow status.

“Because healthcare management ultimately affects the people in our communities, it is critically important to have a standard of excellence promoted by a professional organization,” says Thomas C. Dolan, PhD, FACHE, CAE, president and chief executive officer of ACHE. “By becoming an ACHE Fellow and simultaneously earning board certification from ACHE, healthcare leaders can show that they are committed to providing high-quality service to their patients and community.”

Fellow status represents achievement of the highest standard of professional development. In fact, only 7,500 U.S. healthcare executives hold this distinction. To obtain Fellow status, candidates must fulfill multiple requirements, including interviews, obtaining executive sponsors, 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.

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, as well as ground-breaking research and career development and public policy programs.
