NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF
HEALTH SERVICE EXECUTIVES
The National Association of Health Services Executives (NAHSE) is a non-profit association of Black health care executives founded in 1968 for the purpose of promoting the advancement and development of Black health care leaders, and elevating the quality of health care services rendered to minority and undeserved communities.
SOUTH CAROLINA CHAPTER
The South Carolina Chapter of NAHSE was founded in 1995 with Fred Hobby, Diversity Officer at Greenville Hospital System as its first president. The SC Chapter continues to align itself with the national mission by striving to advance opportunities to improve the health of South Carolinians, advance minority leadership at all levels of health organizations, and support its students.
NAHSE will be recognized globally as the premier professional membership society for Blacks in health care management. NAHSE strives to improve the health status, economic opportunities and educational advancement of the communities we serve. NAHSE is committed to the Association goals by providing: Professional Programs/Workshops Educational Programs A Job Bank/Mentoring Scholarship Student Internship Community Service Projects Health Policy Impact Expanding Business Contracting Opportunities.
NAHSE places its origin as far back as the early 1930’s, when a group of black health executives formed what was then called the National Hospital Association (NHA), an affiliate of the National Medical Association (NMA). In 1936, a meeting of all “Negro hospital executives” was called and held at Lincoln Hospital in Durham, NC. At that meeting, the NHA was renamed the National Conference of Hospital Administration (NCHA). Dr. Albert W. Dent was named Chairman and Mr. John Procope was named Secretary-Treasurer. After several changes in leadership, the Conference’s activities were limited to one informal meeting held in conjunction with the annual AHA meeting. In 1968, NAHSE was formed and Mr. Everett V. Fox was named the first President.
Since its inception, NAHSE has sponsored and participated in local and national programs designed to improve quality, access, and availability of health services and to expand educational opportunities in the field of health services administration. NAHSE has a proud heritage, one we celebrate each and every year at our National Educational Conference.
