ASHE is a trusted resource for education, regulatory guidance, networking, advocacy representation, and professional development.

Their handbook, Introduction to Health Care Facilities Management, is just one of the resources they offer. This in-depth, 130+ page introductory book provides an orientation to the dynamic field of health care facilities management. It includes anecdotes and tips from seasoned health-care professionals chosen specifically to be valuable to newcomers, engaging to experienced managers, and thought-provoking to other health care professionals. This handbook is valuable to health care workers at every level of their careers.

The first in a series, Introduction to Health Care Facilities Management should be seen as a framework for managers to pass down alongside unique information about their individual facilities. It covers how health care facilities management differs from other facilities management and gives readers insights on how to succeed in their roles. The appendix even offers a guide for what to do in the first 30 days on the job.
