McRoberts recently became a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives
Kevin McRoberts, FACHE, senior vice president of business development at Lake Regional Health System, recently became a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives — the nation’s leading professional society of health care leaders. As a Fellow, McRoberts may use the FACHE credential, which also signifies his board certification in health care management.
“It is important that our leadership team demonstrates standards of excellence, such as those promoted by ACHE,” said Michael E. Henze, chief executive officer at Lake Regional Health System. “By becoming an ACHE Fellow and earning board certification, Kevin has demonstrated his commitment to ensuring our patients receive exceptional care.”
Fellow status represents achievement of the highest standard of professional development. Nationwide, only 7,500 health care executives currently hold this distinction.
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 also are committed to ongoing professional development and undergo recertification every three years.
McRoberts joined Lake Regional in 2000. His responsibilities include leadership and management of physician recruitment, managed care contracting, public relations, marketing, fund development and Lake Regional Medical Group — a wholly owned, for-profit subsidiary of Lake Regional Health System.
Before joining Lake Regional, McRoberts served as executive director for Missouri Advantage in Jefferson City.
He has a bachelor’s degree in management from Missouri State University in Springfield and a master’s degree in health administration from the University of Missouri in Columbia.
McRoberts is a member of the American College of Healthcare Executives and the Medical Group Management Association. He also is vice president of the Lake Area Chamber of Commerce and chairman of the University of Missouri Extension Council of Camden County.
The American College of Healthcare Executives is an international professional society representing 30,000 individuals who lead our nation’s hospitals, health systems and other health care organizations. It is known for its prestigious credentialing and educational programs.
