HFMA membership exceeds 75,000 in the year of its 75th anniversary

HFMA reached yet another milestone by surpassing 75,000 members on Oct. 1, after 19 straight quarters of membership growth and shattered membership records.

Fueled by its nearly four-year-old Enterprise Solutions program, which allows providers and other healthcare-related organizations to acquire memberships for their staffs, HFMA’s new all-time membership mark represents timely symmetry for an organization that celebrated its 75th anniversary in November.

“We are excited to reach this membership milestone during HFMA’s anniversary year,” said Joseph J. Fifer, FHFMA, CPA, president and CEO of HFMA. “Together with colleagues from all disciplines of healthcare, finance professionals are working to address today’s healthcare challenges and opportunities. At HFMA, we are proud to mark our 75th year of supporting our members’ efforts to improve health and lives.”

The latest figures represent growth of nearly 55,000 members since the Enterprise program was launched in 2018. 

“Experiencing such significant growth during these tumultuous times demonstrates the value of HFMA’s content and education,” said Bill Casey, HFMA senior vice president of member experience and business development. “It’s our privilege to serve the healthcare industry and our expanding membership ranks.”

After starting from scratch, the total number of organizations active in Enterprise now stands at 172.
