HFMA Partners with SFHN in 2018

The Florida Chapter of the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) is pleased to announce a partnership with South Florida Hospital & Healthcare News (SFHN). We are excited about the opportunity to promote the benefits of membership in Florida HFMA through this media outlet and promote our upcoming meetings and events.

As part of this arrangement, SFHN will become part of the Florida HFMA Family, participating in our HFMA conferences around the state, and will be our exclusive Media Sponsor.
This month we are conducting a membership drive in the state of Florida, so this partnership with SFHN is very timely. We are reaching out to healthcare professionals throughout the state, encouraging them to come “Join the Family” by becoming members of the Florida chapter of the HFMA.
Florida HFMA is the largest HFMA chapter in the nation with more than 1,400 members on average. Our provider members include individuals from hospitals, physician practices, and everything in between. Our business partner (vendor) members represent companies that provide solutions, technology and services to all of our provider members. We host three statewide conferences each year, along with numerous regional events across the state.
