Stacey is asking the public to visit his blog and submit ideas to improve health care.
Stacey, 50, replaces outgoing chairman Chris Van Gorder, CEO of Scripps Health in San Diego and one of Modern Healthcare's 100 most powerful people in healthcare. Stacey will assume the one-year role at the annual Council of Regents Meeting during the 54th Congress on Healthcare Leadership in Chicago.
The ACHE is an international professional society of more than 35,000 healthcare executives who lead hospitals, healthcare systems and other healthcare organizations. Based in Chicago, ACHE works toward its goal of being the premier professional society for healthcare executives dedicated to improving healthcare delivery.
"It's perhaps the greatest professional honor I've ever received," Stacey said. "When your peers ask you to fill a role like this, it's a great and distinct honor."
