CSHE provides opportunities for members to communicate and exchange ideas to keep abreast of operational disciplines through local chapter meetings, the annual institute, code review committee communications, newsletters and seminars.
The CSHE Board of Directors and the executive committee meet quarterly to conduct the business of the society. In its first five years, CSHE doubled its membership and the number of hospitals represented, established the CSHE Annual Institute, published the CSHE News, and participated on code review committees. CSHE members have held board positions in the American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE), including several presidencies, and serve on various ASHE advisory committees.
CSHE has established health care facility engineering educational programs in community colleges, apprenticeship programs and coordinated with professionals in the architectural, design and mechanical/electrical engineering fields of health care facility construction.
Chapters meet bi-monthly or monthly featuring speakers on topics of educational value to the health care facility engineer. These meetings provide the opportunity to exchange ideas with other CSHE members on common health care facility engineering issues.
