From the May/June Issue...
After a winter punctuated by the “bombogenesis” weather
phenomenon, summer is finally making its welcome approach. And if a trip
to the beach is on your calendar, you will find plenty to read in this
issue of the Journal of Healthcare Management.
In addition to our usual lineup—healthcare leader
interview, featured columns, and research articles with practitioner
applications—we are publishing three research articles with practitioner
applications exclusively online. They are listed in the table of
contents and summarized in the print version. These special e-articles
bring added attention to JHM's
enhanced online edition, which also offers other useful features
including a digital archive, improved search capabilities, customizable
article collections, e-alerts, and more. This summer will bring other
new online-only features, possibly including a podcast of the healthcare
leader interviews. Stay tuned.
This month's interview features Ashley R. McClellan,
FACHE. McClellan is the 2018 recipient of the Robert S. Hudgens Memorial
Award for Young Healthcare Executive of the Year, presented by the
American College of Healthcare Executives to recognize individuals who
make remarkable achievements early in their careers. As CEO of The
Woman's Hospital of Texas in Houston, McClellan more than merits such
recognition. In our conversation, she highlights the unique challenges
in leading an organization that serves a specific population.
Employee wellness is another aspect of population
health that is garnering wide attention. Continuing our yearlong theme
of caring for the caregivers, Donna L. Bodin shares successful tactics
in launching wellness programs. As vice president for employee and
wellness services, she describes how Woman's Hospital in Baton Rouge,
Louisiana, developed its award-winning initiatives and makes a strong
case for other health systems to make similar investments.
