AAHAM Friends!

Happy New Year! I hope that all of you had a very Merry Christmas and enjoyed a Happy New Year celebration. This is my final President’s Message and I just simply wanted to take the opportunity to say THANK YOU!

Thank you to the IL AAHAM Membership. Your confidence in me as your President is very humbling and I appreciate my time with you more than you could possibly know.

Thank you to my Board of Directors. Serving with you has been a tremendous opportunity and I will always be grateful for the support you have shown me during my terms as President. Thank you to the National AAHAM Executive Board of Directors for their continued guidance and direction that affords the IL Chapter the opportunity to succeed. I could not have done it without the support and mentoring they provide me on a daily basis. IL AAHAM has truly, “Raised the Level” and I could not be more proud.

Thank you to our Corporate Partners! Without your unending support and dedication to AAHAM and the IL Chapter, we could not do it! I appreciate your support and collaboration that has made IL AAHAM what it is today! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! The next edition of the ASI will be the last edition featuring our 2019 Corporate Partners. We thank you for all that you have done! We look forward to partnering with you in the future!

Thank you to the friends and colleagues that I have met along my journey. I will always be grateful for what you have brought to my life. I consider this network of friends priceless and I would never have had the opportunity to meet you if it hadn’t been for my time with AAHAM.

Thank you to my wife and family. Thank you for allowing me the time to volunteer and always supporting the time it takes to make IL AAHAM great!

Thank you Gibson Area Hospital and Health Services. Thank you to John Currier, Matthew Ertel and Rob Schmitt for supporting my time with IL AAHAM. They truly understand that volunteer organizations could not function without great leadership from all areas of the Revenue Cycle and that a partnership with AAHAM is great for both organizations!

As I assume the role of Chairman of the Board, I am very excited to support the new Board of Directors as they continue to “Raise the Level”.

With a grateful heart and best wishes to all of you for a prosperous, happy and healthy New Year!

Yours in AAHAM,
Joshua Johnson, CRCS-I/P, CRCP-I, CRCE-I
Illinois Chapter President
