New SEMO Healthcare Program One of Three In U.S.

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) – Southeast Missouri State University is adding a new program in healthcare facilities operations that it says would be just the third one of its kind nationwide.

Participants pursuing the certificate will study compliance, management and technology issues.

Southeast Provost Ron Rosati says Brigham Young University and Purdue University are the only two schools currently offering programs to prepare facility managers for the healthcare industry. Rosati says the demand could not be met by these two programs alone.

Southeast worked closely with the Missouri Society for Healthcare Engineering and the two local hospitals to develop a certificate to address the need. Several health organizations also provided letters of support.

The Cape Girardeau’s Board of Regents approved the certificate program Friday along with new minors in agriculture/horticulture entrepreneurship and autism studies.

    Let me tell you one thing that the best health insurance plans has completely different set of meaning for different type of people. For those who are rich, the plan which can earn them more is best. However, those who are in the middle class have different ideas. They think that insurance plan is the best for which they will have to pay minimum premium. However, the poor person does not even know that what is health insurance? If you are one of them search online for “Wise Medical Insurance” and get smart about insurance.
