High Reliability, The Healthcare FM Podcast is brought to you by Gosselin/Martin Associates. Our show discusses the issues, challenges, and opportunities within the Facilities Management (FM) function.
In today’s episode, I am joined by two experienced facility management professionals, Charles (CJ) Brown and Pete Girard. CJ is the Director of Engineering at Women and Infants Hospital in Providence, RI, a member of the Care New England system. Pete is a Facility Manager at Addison-Gilbert Hospital in Gloucester, MA, a Beth Israel Lahey Health member.
Both CJ and Pete are active in the New England Healthcare Engineering Society, better known as NEHES. Founded in 1958, NEHES has a long, award-winning history. Pete is the President of NEHES, not an insignificant task in this strange year we call 2020, while CJ leads Education and Career Development for the Chapter.
Today’s topics include:
- A non-traditional path (2:00);
- Can Long Term Care healthcare workers find success in acute care (7:00);
- On running a Chapter in 2020, and the impact of distance learning (14:00);
- Soft skills versus technical skill breakdown, which do you need for FM success (40:00);
