President's Message for SOHL 2016:V Shumulinsky

Welcome to a new year at the San Diego Organization of Healthcare Leaders! I am honored to serve as this year’s president.

First, I’d like to look back on a positive year for SOHL in 2015. We held our most successful Annual Conference in 7 years, with over 150 attendees and phenomenal local and nationally renowned speakers, all around the topic of the “Boomer Tsumani” and its impact on our industry. Last year, we held some exciting networking events around the county and forged partnerships with organizations outside the traditional realm of healthcare. We toured Balboa Hospital, an amazing provider of healthcare for our active duty military citizens. We joined forces with the ACHE during the ACHE Cluster held here in San Diego. SOHL received the Sustained Performance Award for the 3rd year in a row.

Additionally, we said goodbye to our beloved Secretary of 15+ years, Carol Benton. Congratulations Carol on your retirement! We brought on a new member to the SOHL family, Emily Brown of Promise Healthcare, who will be serving our chapter this year as our new Secretary. We also welcomed Mary Parra as our interim Regent for the San Diego and Los Angeles chapters. Thank you to Kathi Lencioni who served us well as the ACHE Regent for the last couple years.

This year, we focus on value for our members and on diversifying our partnerships in the community. That starts with a wonderful new 2016 Board. Our Board of Directors, Committee Chairs, and Sub-Committee Chairs represent 23 diverse healthcare organizations. These leaders have created a detailed strategic plan that will help us meet our goals for the year.

We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming events. Please check the website and our social media pages on LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter often for updates. We value your feedback as members as well on events and other opportunites. Please do not hesitate to ask the board members questions or send an email to our organization at
