ELIZABETH — Nancy DiLiegro, PhD, FACHE, vice president of Clinical Operations and Physician Services and chief clinical officer of Trinitas Regional Medical Center, has been elected the New Jersey Regent serving the American College of Healthcare Executives – New Jersey. Through this election, DiLiegro becomes a member of the organization’s Council of Regents which serves in an advisory capacity to the national ACHE Board of Governors. Regents perform the major duties of advising the local ACHE chapter, reaching out to the local healthcare communities, and facilitating communications between the national organization and the local healthcare community.
“As a Regent, I will promote ongoing learning by encouraging my peers to take advantage of all educational opportunities that the ACHE offers to members,” DiLiegro said, adding, “I’m a strong believer in networking; in fact, sharing our professional experiences is the most valuable commodity that we can trade with our colleagues.”
Earlier this year, Dr. DiLiegro completed a successful term as president of the ACHE-New Jersey Chapter, and now serves as its immediate past president. She feels that her work on the Board of ACHE-NJ, together with her recent service as chairman of the Northern New Jersey Chapter of the American Heart Association, have taught her valuable lessons about the spirit of voluntarism. “Serving as a volunteer – and being passionate about a cause – are the best ways to stimulate creativity and generate new ideas,” she stated.
DiLiegro will serve as New Jersey Regent for a three-year term.
