Andrew Cousin, Jr., Director of Marketing for Mayo Medical Laboratories, has earned his fellowship from the American College of Health Care Executives (ACHE) and is now recognized as board-certified in health care management. Earning the board certification and becoming a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives (FACHE) signifies expertise, experience, and commitment to continuing education and professional development. Just as members of a medical staff are board-certified, having the FACHE credential indicates a high level of achievement in the health care industry and one's unique profession.
“The path to ACHE Fellowship has expanded my practical knowledge and professional network in the health care field,” says Cousin. “It’s positively challenged my thinking on new ways to offer Mayo Clinic’s advanced diagnostic and interpretive services to better align to the changing care and payment models of our Mayo Medical Laboratories clients.”
The credentialing system is multifaceted and involves academic preparation, health care management experience, ACHE tenure, passing the Board of Governors Examination in Health Care Management, continuing education, references, and community and civic involvement.
At Mayo Clinic, there are 45 staff members who also have ACHE credentialing, 12 of whom are located in Rochester, Minnesota.
Congratulations to Mr. Cousin on this wonderful achievement.
