LBMC, PC is proud to announce that Andrew McDonald, LBMC Partner of Healthcare Consulting, has taken over as President for American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) of Middle Tennessee.
The ACHE’s main purpose is to advance the foundational structure of healthcare administration as a profession, provide continuing education to healthcare professionals, and with the assistance of ACHE, increase the purposeful development and mentorship of future healthcare leaders. “I hope to assist the organization in providing opportunities to address both local and national healthcare management needs,” comments McDonald about his appointment.
LBMC’s Healthcare Consulting Practice offers a wide variety of healthcare services that augment the traditional accounting firm deliverables to a variety of healthcare clients throughout the country. McDonald became interested in healthcare while working at the local hospital in his hometown of Florence, Alabama. After completing his undergraduate degree at the University of Alabama, Andrew went on to graduate studies in Hospital and Health Administration at the University of Alabama-Birmingham, receiving his Master’s degree in 1986. His graduate studies included a residency at the 754-bed Mobile Infirmary Medical Center, where he continued to serve in various administrative positions in the acute care sector of healthcare for 10 years. The opportunity to start up a home health agency for the Infirmary Health System presented itself, so McDonald transitioned to post-acute care. Following experience in the home care arena, McDonald moved to physician practice management, initially with a neurosurgery group for four years and, then, with a cardiology practice for three years. McDonald and his family moved to Nashville in 2005. Andrew became an ACHE Fellow in 1995.
