Facilities Managers-OSHFM

The overarching goal of the Ohio Society for Health Care Facilities Management, or OSHFM, is to improve the quality of patient care and comfort — by advancing the development of hospital engineering, security and safety.

OSHFM provides education, regulatory guidance, networking and advocacy representation for health care facility managers, engineers, architects, constructors and many others involved with maintaining safe healing environments.

Purpose & Objectives

OSHFM was established as an affiliated society of OHA in 1983. The society's purpose is to advance the development of hospital engineering in Ohio by:
  • Encouraging and assisting members in developing their knowledge and increasing their competence in the field to improve the quality of patient care and comfort
  • Providing a medium for the exchange of ideas and dissemination of information among members
  • Assisting hospital administration and the public in understanding that the practice of hospital engineering calls for special training and experience
  • Monitoring and influencing legislation, regulations, codes and standards that impact on hospital engineering

In meeting these objectives, the Ohio Society for Hospital Engineering promotes careers in hospital engineering, develops educational programming, and encourages affiliation with the American Society for Hospital Engineering.
