Mack named fellow of healthcare executives

Megan Mack, an occupational therapist and manager of Beaufort Memorial Hospital’s HealthLink for Children, recently became a fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE), the nation’s leading professional society for healthcare leaders.

She joins an elite group of healthcare professionals in achieving this premier credential in healthcare management. Only 9,100 healthcare executives in the country hold the distinction.

“Pursuit of Fellowship in ACHE is not a quick hop,” said Beaufort Memorial Senior Director Laurie Martin. “It is awarded only after years of dedicated learning, networking, community involvement and personal growth.”

Mack began working at BMH in 2003 as an occupational therapy clinical intern from Keuka College. She was hired by the hospital in 2004 after graduating from the Upstate New York school.

While working full time at the hospital, she earned her Master’s in Healthcare Administration from New England College. In 2008, she was named manager of HealthLink for Children, Beaufort Memorial’s outpatient pediatric rehab centers.

Throughout her 12 years at BMH, Mack has been actively involved in the Bluffton community where she lives. She completed Leadership Bluffton and has served as a governor for the program and is a past officer and active member of the Bluffton Rotary Club. She also participated in the South Carolina Hospital Association Management Academy.
