ABOUT TSHE

Serving Engineering Professionals Since 1978

The TriState Society of Healthcare Engineers was founded in 1978 as a local chapter of the American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE). Based in Cincinnati, OH, our organization serves hospitals, vendors, and others affiliated with the healthcare industry in the TriState region of Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana. We are proud to be recognized as
a Platinum Chapter of ASHE.

Our society meets monthly in different locations to provide networking and educational opportunities for our members. Educational topics often include pertinent code updates, discussion of trends in facilities, and innovations in design and construction.

In addition to meeting monthly, TSHE is a registered non-profit organization. Each June, we host a golf outing to raise funds for Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. This has been a tremendous annual success story, which has benefited many children with cancer.
