HFMA Organization Overview
HFMA is the nation’s leading membership organization for more than 34,000 healthcare financial management professionals employed by hospitals, integrated delivery systems, managed care organizations, ambulatory and long-term care facilities, physician practices, accounting and consulting firms, and insurance companies.
HFMA is guided by voluntary leaders, with each chapter having its own elected officers and committees. On the National level, there is an elected 17-member Board of Directors and 27 members who are appointed to serve on councils and committees that provide guidance on timely issues, review Association programs and collect feedback from other members across the country.
The chapter is the fundamental level of the organization and provides the primary service opportunity for individual members. Seventy chapters are chartered in the United States and Puerto Rico. Chapters are not separately incorporated, yet operate in accordance with individual constitutions and By-Laws. Chapter affairs are managed by elected officers and directors; presently, chapters have no paid staff.
The Metropolitan Philadelphia Chapter of HFMA is comprised of over 1,000 members from many different industries within the healthcare community. Through educational and social programs, our major focus is to the professional development and career advancement of our members.
HFMA chapters are organized into 11 regions. Regions provide an intermediate organizational grouping within which chapters are encouraged to grow and develop. With 70 chapters combined into 11 regions, each region serves an average of seven chapters, representing approximately 2,700 members.
