President's Message


I am proud to serve as President of the HFMA Metropolitan NY Chapter and I feelprivileged to be part of distinguished list of healthcare leaders that have held this role before me. The Past President’s, the Board, Committee leads and many others have worked hard to advance the chapter putting in the extra effort to ensure that the best educational and networking events are available for our members.
This year I would like to maintain many of the traditions that our chapter is known for however I would also like to bring forth innovation and new initiatives to align with National’s strategic plan to collaborate with payers and physicians, empower women and to engage early careerists this coming year. We will build on efforts to further develop a “Roadshow” program to bring education and relevant content to our hospitals and communities. The chapter will host a Women in Leadership Conference in early 2018 and we plan to collaborate with the health plan community to offer networking and speaking opportunities. As you may know we have embarked in a Mentee and Mentor program to give opportunity for mentee’s who strive to advance in leadership roles to learn valuable knowledge from a mentor’s experience and expertise while also providing them with the value of HFMA.
This year’s theme is “Where Passion Meets Purpose”. Carol Friesen, HFMA National Chair shares her personal story of a tragic accident and her family’s experience with the healthcare system. How she found passion in her work knowing that improving healthcare financial operations, allows for quality clinical care and has direct impact on the patient experience.
This theme is something that we all need to embrace. Our contribution is to lead healthcare finance. As leaders, we are met each day with the challenges to transform what we know into what our patients and families need. This year’s theme encourages, healthcare finance professionals to find their passion. When passion meets purpose you become fulfilled in your role of helping others, life has meaning and you strive to do your best and be your best.

Our chapter is one of the largest in the country, we have the most dedicated volunteers and I encourage all of our members and new mentees to become more involved.The Officers, The Board of Directors &Committee Chairsare committed to leading this chapter through another successful year ofproviding quality education and networking opportunities.


We are very fortunate to have generous corporate sponsors that believe in our mission and enable us to carry out our events and programs throughout the year. Thank you for your continued support!
