University Hospital executive earns top healthcare management credential

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Manlius resident Paul E. Seale, chief operating officer of University Hospital, has been named a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE). A Fellow is one of the highest honors offered by ACHE, the nation’s leading professional society.

Fellow status is reserved only for the top performing healthcare executive in the nation. In order to receive Fellow status, individuals must pass a comprehensive examination, meet academic and experiential criteria, earn continuing education credits and demonstrate ongoing community and professional involvement. Fellows must undertake a rigorous professional development program and undergo recertification every three years.

“Healthcare management affects people in our communities which is why it is critically important to have a standard of excellence promoted by a professional organization,” said Thomas C. Dolan, Ph.D., president and chief executive officer of ACHE. “By becoming an ACHE Fellow and simultaneously earning board certification from ACHE, healthcare leaders show that they are committed to providing high-quality service to their patients and community.”

Prior to joining University Hospital in 2006, Seale served as president and chief executive officer of New Island Hospital in Bethpage, N.Y., and chief operating officer of Stony Brook (N.Y.) University Hospital Medical Center.

University Hospital is the teaching hospital of SUNY Upstate Medical University.
