    30th Anniversary

    2010 marked ASHRM’s 30th anniversary, a time to reflect on our contributions to the growth of healthcare risk management since ASHRM was founded in 1980.

    We started out as the American Society for Hospital Risk Management. Now we are the American Society for Healthcare Risk Management, with more than 5,300 members and 50 affiliated local chapters representing a variety of healthcare-related entities with clinical, legal and financial interests.

    This page provides a showcase for all members to reflect upon ASHRM’s successes and share dreams for the profession.

    ASHRM 30th Anniversary Message
    Looking Back and Forging Ahead - It Is an Exciting Time to be a Risk Manager!

    "Looking back... 30 years ago I was just starting out my career in healthcare as a young nurse on a very busy medical unit in an urban hospital. Most young professionals form first impressions pretty quickly, and my first impressions have stayed with me for a lifetime. They have formed who I am today, how I think, and they even drive my professional passions."
