The California Society for Healthcare Engineering (CSHE) — the California chapter of the American Society for Healthcare Engineering — encourages hospital facilities staff or those who provide consultative, advisory products or equipment to health care facilities to join the organization and take advantage of its educational and networking opportunities.
CSHE chapters regularly hold educational meetings, which focus on topics such as facilities planning, design, construction, commissioning, plant operations, maintenance, repair, energy, building codes, safety, emergency management, and regulatory compliance. Not only do these meetings afford an opportunity to exchange ideas with other CSHE members on common health care facility engineering problems, but they are also an opportunity to collect continuing education credits toward certifications.
In addition to regular chapter meetings, CSHE hosts the Annual Institute, Southern California Seminar, Northern California Seminar, and frequently invites subject matter experts from the Department of Health Care Access and Information and The Joint Commission to provide building code and regulatory compliance updates.
Founded over 65 years ago, CSHE currently has over 1,000 members with 11 chapters statewide. For more information, or to become a CSHE member, visit www.cshe.org. Questions can be directed to CSHE President Narsimha Irrinki at email@example.com, or the CSHE state office at (916) 860-6226.
