NSU instructor named Lifetime Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives

(Tahlequah, Oklahoma) -- Northeastern State University Instructor Mark Tozzio has been named a Lifetime Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives.

Tozzio, a retired hospital administrator of 37 years, teaches healthcare administration courses to students in the U.S. and internationally as part of the NSU Continuing Education department.

He recently published a 400-page book titled “Why the United States Healthcare System Should be a Limited Human Right for All.” He has also worked with Dr. Eloy Chavez, dean of NSU’s College of Extended Learning, to develop a growing CEU program for healthcare managers around the world.

The American College of Healthcare Executives is the leading international professional association for healthcare managers.

The requirements to become a fellow are stringent, including an examination by the Board of ACHE, at least 10 years of experience in healthcare administration, attainment of an advanced degree in healthcare and recommendations by peers. To be appointed as a lifetime fellow, candidates must have been an accomplished fellow for several years and have significant career milestones behind them. They must have made contributions to the profession, have earned continuing education credits for recertification and be retired from full-time employment in the health services field.

The honor of Lifetime Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives is awarded to only a fraction of fellows worldwide, and Tozzio said he is proud to be among them.

"Achievement of the LFACHE status demonstrates to my students and colleagues that I represent the highest standards of ethical management practices and a commitment to ongoing development of the healthcare management profession worldwide," he said.

Chavez said Tozzio is a great asset to NSU.

“Mark is an extraordinary, intelligent individual who has developed domestic and international markets interested in enhancing Healthcare Administration at the executive level,” Chavez said. “His passion for his students to learn both on the credit side and continuing education side has placed NSU on the map for quality Healthcare Administration cutting edge knowledge and information.”
