Local young healthcare executives participate in DFWHC classes


Stephen Griffin of 6SigmaTek presents to the Young Healthcare Executive Cohort today at DFWHC offices.

The future of North Texas healthcare is at the DFW Hospital Council (DFWHC) offices today for a series of classes detailing hospital government relations and Lean 6 Sigma training. The gathering is a part of DFWHC’s Young Healthcare Executive Cohort, or YHEC for short.

The group was started this year by W. Stephen Love, president/CEO of the DFWHC, and Fraser Hay, president of Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Plano and DFWHC board member.

YHEC is a complimentary DFWHC program to provide education, networking and collaboration to area hospital executives 40 years of age or younger. Today’s class was the second of three taking place in 2018.

An expert panel with David Tesmer, senior vice president of engagement and advocacy at Texas Health Resources; Matt Moore, vice president of government and community relations at Children’s Health; and Corey Davison, vice president at Tenet Healthcare, discussed hospital government relations.

Stephen Griffin, managing partner of Lean Six Sigma, provided a presentation detailing problem solving exercises and business transformation.

“The mission of the DFWHC YHEC is to engage future healthcare leaders and expose them to relevant topics,” Love said. “This is an effort to better prepare these future hospital and system leaders to collaborate with peers and solve common challenges to the benefit the communities they serve.”
