President’s Corner

Dear SMSHE Members,

I hope each of you are well and in good spirits. As I roll into the last year of my term as President, I reflect on the past year. We have endured a very busy year in 2022. Many of our Healthcare facilities have begun to open back up to normal business patterns. This past year we learned a lot about the resiliency of our Healthcare maintenance teams and the vendors that support them. The partnership between the maintenance leadership personnel and our partners within the contractor industry have proven to be vital for the continued stability of our healthcare facilities.

Please join me in thanking Randy Judd and Sam Russo for their service as they have both resigned their Board positions and moved on to other industries. Our new Board member is Elizabeth (Liz) Lyon, Chair for the Events Committee. Active Board members have filled into new roles: Dan Martino (President-Elect), and Jim Kryzwiecki, (Secretary).

We are looking forward to an exciting year of events. See the list below for upcoming meetings:

  1. 55th Annual AIA Health Facilities Planning Seminar, March 16th and 17th, 2023 in Grand Rapids, MI
  2. Update on Michigan Regulatory Affair with Pier-George Zanoni, Facility Engineering Licensed Specialist; LARA, Bureau of Community and Health Systems, SMSHE Educational Meeting to be held on April 12, 2023
  3. From the Boiler Room to the Board Room – Communicating the VALUE of Infrastructure Investment to Non-Facility Leadership, SMSHE Educational Meeting to be held on May 10, 2023, by Brightly, a Siemens Co.
  4. SMSHE 27th Annual Golf outing July 21, 2023 to be held at Links of Novi

Your SMSHE President,
Stanley Browning
