Congratulations to Diana L. Smalley, RN, FACHE, one of two 2018 ACHE Gold Medal Award recipients. The Gold Medal Award, ACHE’s highest honor, is bestowed on outstanding leaders who have made a significant contribution to the healthcare field throughout their service career.
Ms. Smalley, regional president of Mercy Oklahoma, served as ACHE Chairman from 2013 to 2014, on the Board of Governors from 2009 to 2012, and on the Council of Regents from 2002 to 2006. Ms. Smalley also currently serves on community committees and boards throughout Oklahoma.
The purpose of the award is to identify ACHE Fellows who best exemplify leadership at the organizational, local/state/provincial and national levels. The Gold medal recognizes individuals who go beyond the confines of their own organization to continually contribute to the improvement of healthcare services and community health.
