The Central Arizona Society for Healthcare Engineering (CASHE) is a great educational and networking resource for professionals working in the healthcare engineering, design and construction fields. CASHE is your local chapter of ASHE and meets monthly in Phoenix.
Every year there are changes within the healthcare industry. Whether keeping up with new regulations or industry trends, it is difficult to stay current on all of the latest issues. CASHE is a group of professionals in the Phoenix Metro area that have come together to promote an exchange of ideas on the latest healthcare issues. CASHE’s mission is to:
- Encourage and assist members to develop their knowledge and increase their competence in the fields related to the environment of healthcare facilities.
- Encourage and assist in conducting regular meetings, conferences and educational programs.
- Provide a medium for the interchange of ideas, communication of information and cooperation between members.
- Serve in an advocacy role on behalf of the membership in the development of codes, regulations and legislation that affect healthcare institutions.
CASHE members come from a range of disciplines including facilities maintenance and operations; engineering; clinical or biomedical engineering; technology management; planning, design and construction; safety; and security management. Student members are welcome, as are individuals employed by outside firms that serve healthcare facilities.
CASHE encourages member involvement through various committees that have been organized to meet the needs of membership. Become a CASHE member and join with other professionals in your field to create continuous improvement in healthcare engineering and facilities management.
