Healthcare Leadership Network of the Delaware Valley names CAHME CEO Dr. Anthony Stanowski as the American College of Healthcare Executives Regent Award.

Spring House, PA, March 1, 2021 — The  Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education  (CAHME) announced that Dr. Anthony Stanowski, DHA, FACHE, President and CEO, will be awarded the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) Senior-Level Healthcare Executive Regents Award by the Healthcare Leadership Network of the Delaware Valley (HLNDV).  The award will be presented on March 3, 2021 at the HLNDV annual “Breakfast with the Regents”. The award is given to executives who exemplify the goals of ACHE, to educate, engage and inspire leaders to improve health.

For nearly 40 years, Dr. Stanowski served the industry in senior leadership roles in the provider, supplier, and healthcare management education sectors.

Since 2016, under Dr. Stanowski’s leadership, CAHME saw a nearly 50% increase in accredited programs to 124, developed partnership opportunities with the industry to encourage excellence, and established accreditation criteria in healthcare quality and safety. CAHME broadened its focus outside of its traditional service area of the US and Canada, and several programs from outside North America are now working toward accreditation. CAHME established program grants and student scholarships to assist the aspiring healthcare leaders to meet their goals. It created an online tool to allow students to better select programs that meet their needs based on key program characteristics and outcomes.

“Anthony has stayed committed to CAHME’s mission over 4 decades, from when he was a graduate student of the accredited program at Widener University, as a healthcare executive, and to his current role,” said Dr. Dolores G. Clement, DrPH, FACHE, Chair of the Board of Directors of CAHME, and herself a former regent’s award recipient.  “What makes Anthony a great leader inside and outside of CAHME is that he exemplifies CAHME’s values and is a caretaker of high standards of accreditation.”

“Anthony’s lifetime of working with young careerist extends from hiring administrative residents early in his career to his current role of influencing the education process,” said Michael George Vice President, Healthcare Services at Albert Einstein Medical Center and ACHE Regent. “Anthony continues to advance healthcare management education, which will have a long-term impact on healthcare.”

“I am humbled by this recognition from my peers at ACHE and HLNDV, thankful for all of the healthcare leaders who shaped my career and energized by the young careerists whose dedication to our healthcare system will make a difference in the communities in which they serve,” said Dr. Stanowski.
