Region 7

Message from Our Regional Executive

Greetings from Region 7.  My name is Trent Chastain and I’m the 2022-2023 Regional Executive (RE) for Region 7.  I have been honored and blessed to be a part of HFMA for over 20 years now. I’ve been in the finance/revenue cycle healthcare arena for 40 years.  My first job was as a file clerk back in the early 80’s in downtown Indianapolis, IN and then worked my way up in to a management positions within two years and have been in revenue cycle management ever since.  Therefore, I appreciate any and every position someone holds and I’ve always felt like we can learn from each other, regardless of the position we hold.  This is one of the great things about being a part of HFMA in that we help each other to accomplish our goals TOGETHER! 

Region 7 consists of five different chapters. The Chapters and Presidents for the 2022-2023 year are as follows:

  • First Illinois – Brian Pavona
  • Indiana Pressler Memorial – Lisa Earl
  • Greater Illinois – Jessica Yard & Jennifer Campbell
  • Wisconsin – Julie Kressin

We are looking forward to our Region 7 Midwest Conference scheduled for October 23-25, 2022 in Oak Brook, IL. There will also be other opportunities to join us or be part of our individual chapter events that you can find by clicking on this page under the “In This Region” section.  You will find out information on webinars, virtual events, live events, and additional volunteer opportunities within each chapter.

If I can be of any further assistance during this year or connect you with others, please feel free to reach out to me

Here’s to a GREAT 2022-2023 Region 7 Year!  Hope to see you at an event in the near future.
