National Awards

 

The award was named for Frederick C. Morgan, who joined the Association in 1948. His outstanding efforts included a six-year tenure as a volunteer secretary-treasurer. The Morgan Award is the most prestigious individual award given by HFMA and is designed to encourage the spirit of service to the principles of the Association as fostered by Morgan himself. Morgan retired from healthcare in 1965 and died in Rochester, N.Y., in 1985. HFMA members and chapters may submit nominations, which are reviewed by a committee..

2011 – Robert D. Miller, FHFMA 

Chicago – May 5, 2011 – The Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) will award Robert D. Miller, FHFMA, the 2011 Frederick C. Morgan Achievement Award-the Association’s highest individual honor. He will be the 53rd recipient of this prestigious award that honors career-long contributions to healthcare financial management and HFMA.

Miller has, been a member of HFMA since 1984. He spent his first years of membership in the West Virginia Chapter, where he became involved and assumed the duties of chapter president by 1993. He served as a regional executive, worked on several task forces, offices and committees, and served on the HFMA National Board from 1995 to 1997. Miller won the HFMA Founders Medal of Honor Award in 1998 and is a recipient of other West Virginia Chapter and national HFMA awards.

With his move to Coshocton in 2002, Miller joined the Central Ohio Chapter and has been a key adviser in chapter reorganization, board member, membership chair, rural council chair and twice was a delegate in the US/UK HFMA Exchange. Miller was this year’s winner of the Central Ohio Chapter George M. Gevas President’s award.

“Bob Miller’s enthusiasm for, and dedication to, HFMA is legendary,” says Jen Fannin, Executive Director of American Red Cross of Ohio Hills. “It has been clearly demonstrated through the positions of leadership he has held in various state HFMA chapters, and HFMA National. The recognition of his exceptional leadership skills is evident when one reviews the numerous awards which have been bestowed on Bob throughout his career; however, the positions and awards mentioned above are only a small part of what truly makes Bob Miller worthy of the Fredrick C. Morgan Award.”

National Awards: The Founders Merit Series

Background

The Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) recognizes that its strength lies in volunteers, who contribute their time, ideas, and energy to serve the healthcare industry, their profession, and one another. Active participation in HFMA at the national, regional and/or chapter levels provides members with numerous opportunities for professional development, information, networking, and advocacy. Established in 1960, the Founders Merit Award Series acknowledges the contributions made by HFMA members. These awards are part of a merit-rating plan in which specific activities are assigned a range of point values.

The Founders Merit Award Series was revised in April 2004, returning to its core purpose of “Recognizing the Volunteer in You”. Point categories were adjusted to reflect volunteer activity only – eliminating the accumulation of points for membership and educational attendance. Corresponding point allocations and award levels were simultaneously adjusted.

HFMA encourages continuous active participation at the local and national levels. Therefore, the point system and award levels have been established to promote continuous active participation in HFMA.

The Awards

The William G. Follmer Bronze Award is awarded after an individual has earned 25 (formerly 100) member points. This award is named after William G. Follmer, who is credited with the creation of the American Association of Hospital Accountants (AAHA) (now HFMA).

The Robert H. Reeves Silver Award is awarded to an individual who has earned 50 (formerly 200) total member points. Reeves, an organizing member of the AAHA, was elected president of AAHA in 1956 and was instrumental in creating the structure of AAHA.

The Frederick T. Muncie Gold Award is presented to a member who has earned a total of 75 (formerly 300) member points. This award honors Frederick T. Muncie, an organizing member of the AAHA, and the first president of the association (1947-1949). Muncie also assisted in the organization of the first AAHA chapter (First Illinois).

The Founders Medal of Honor was added in 1986 and is conferred by nomination of the Chapter Board of Directors. This prestigious award recognizes an individual who has been actively involved in HFMA for at least three years after earning the Muncie Gold Award, has provided significant service at the chapter, regional and/or national level in at least two of those years, and remains a member in good standing. A chapter may nominate members for this award at any time during the year.
