What is Healthcare Facilities Leadership?

If you are working in healthcare facilities management or you'd like to be part of this exciting and rewarding field, OCTC's Healthcare Facilities Leadership program (HLF) could be for you. The program is convenient and affordable with all classes available online.

This program can help you take the next step in your career by preparing you to take the American Hospital Association's Certified Healthcare Facilities Management exam. Graduates may transfer and work toward bachelor degrees. This innovative program was developed in collaboration with the American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE) and the Kentucky Society of Healthcare Engineers (KSHE).
