President’s Message

Welcome to the Eastern WSSHE Chapter,

I’m honored to serve as 2022 Eastern Chapter President.

I am excited to serve an organization that has helped me throughout my healthcare career. When I started in the healthcare industry I had many opportunities to learn how to navigate complex and unique problems. One of the early lessons I learned was networking is vital to finding solutions to problems quickly. The WSSHE team is full of compassionate intelligent hard-working healthcare professionals that are willing to lend a helping hand. There are many resources available to members, from conferences and education sessions, to networking and business partners, to help face healthcare challenges. Being a member of WSSHE creates a safer and more comfortable physical environment for our patients, visitors, and staff.

Thank you,

Ryan Fancher, METM | Director of Engineering, CWH
