It is always a pleasure to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of our Florida Chapter members and I have two announcements related to the 2016/2017 HFMA FL Board of Directors.
First, I would like to congratulate Jeff Hurst on his recent position as President of Cerner RevWorks and Senior Vice President of Cerner Revenue Cycle Management. Jeff will be leaving his position of SVP with Florida Hospital to assume his new role with Cerner. This exciting new change also means that Jeff will no longer be able to serve on the HFMA FL Board of Directors as Director of Policy and Finance. While we wish Jeff much success in his new role, we will miss his leadership and experience he has brought to our Chapter. Hopefully, we can invite him to participate in a future education event and brings us insights from his new role with Cerner.
As Jeff’s position was vacated, our Chapter Bylaws require us to fill the position for the remaining term of the Chapter year. The HFMA FL Board of Directors met on July 22nd to nominate a replacement for the position of Director of Policy and Finance. I am excited to announce that Carol Plato will step into this position on the Board of Directors and complete the 2016/2017 term being vacated by Jeff Hurst.
My sincere congratulations to them both!
Lisa Matthews - Florida Chapter HFMA President 2016-2017
