President's Message

Hello and thank you for visiting the HFMA Northeastern Pennsylvania Chapter. I welcome you on behalf of the leadership team and the 500+ members who represent this Chapter. This year brings many opportunities to reconnect with our members and the Healthcare Finance community. Looking back on 2020-2021 and the numerous challenges that we faced during the pandemic, one theme remains constant and that is our Chapter working together with other professionals throughout HFMA towards finding solutions.

Webinars replaced the traditional onsite meetings, and our mission of providing quality education on current healthcare topics stayed on track. In addition to education, we also remained connected through digital networking events. These changes to our traditional hosting of events required new and innovative approaches, and I want to thank all the volunteers who dedicated their time and valuable insight towards making it a success.

As year 2021-2022 begins, we are stepping forward with reopening in-person education events. This marks a major milestone given the prior year’s pandemic restrictions with attending events, and I look forward to seeing these events take place. Our first meeting will be at The Pump House in Bloomsburg, PA on August 26th, followed by our annual Golf Outing at Mountain Laurel Golf Club in White Haven, PA on September 24th. We will also continue to deliver webinar content as well throughout the year.

The strength of our Chapter is through the volunteers who support it, and by becoming more involved the opportunities to connect with other members increases exponentially. I encourage you to further explore our website and take advantage of the numerous content it provides. Our Chapter has several different committees which are presented on the leadership tab. We are always open to volunteers who want to step forward and become more involved. Please feel free to contact us by reaching out to members on the leadership tab or myself if you are interested. We hope to hear from you!

Sincerely,
Brian Babilon, CHFP
2021-2022 President
