Welcome to the Rochester Regional Chapter Website


President’s Message

Welcome to Rochester HFMA 2017 – 2018! I wanted to start out with an introduction of the chapter officers for the year:

Hugh Chisholm, President – I am a Vice President of Finance for Rochester Regional Health, an organization I have been with for the past 5 years. Prior to that, I held a Healthcare Consultant role with Fust Charles Chambers in Syracuse. As the President, my primary role is to ensure that the operations team is compliant with the requirements of HFMA national, and that we meet the goals that HFMA national has set for the year. Ultimately, I am responsible for ensuring that each member of the Rochester HFMA chapter finds value in their membership through education and engagement.



Karl Hagen, President Elect – Karl is Vice President of Finance with Finger Lakes Health System in Geneva, prior to his current position Karl worked for The Bonadio Group as a Principal Auditor. As the President-Elect this year Karl will be tasked with managing the various sponsors that our chapter is fortunate to have partner with us.



Jon Miller, Vice President – Jon is a Partner at the Bonadio Group where he has worked since 2002. As our Vice President, Jon also serves as our Program Chair running the education committee for the year charged with meeting the chapter’s education goals set by National and planning the Fall Institute.



Ryan McGinnis, Secretary – Ryan is the Manager of Decision Support and Cost Accounting at Rochester Regional Health. As secretary this year Ryan handles the recording of minutes for our meetings, he also serves as co-chair of the education committee and will plan the Spring Current Events session.



Rich Leicht, Treasurer – Rich is a Manager at the Bonadio Group. As our chapter Treasurer, Rich is charged with tracking our chapter expenses and reporting to our Board of Directors and National on our overall financial condition.


Our National Chair this year for HFMA is Carol Friesen from Bryan Health in Nebraska. Every year the Chair picks a theme to provide focus for education and drive the entire organization in a cohesive direction. Carol’s theme for this year is Where Passion Meets Purpose. Some days, we let the worries of changing payment models, presidents, rules, and the endless list of challenges get in our way of living our story and making our mark with the gifts we’ve been given. The calling is a simple one of stewardship--lives, populations, relationships, and wealth. It is time for us to make our contribution and write the story for future generations. Answering the call, seizing the opportunity, and achieving meaningful outcomes demands an internal fire, unwavering commitment, and fearless perseverance for whatever it takes to make it a reality. That place where passion meets purpose is truly the “sweet spot.” It’s where the magic happens, where goals are achieved, and where the impossible becomes possible.

The real key to the Rochester Chapter is our members – those that volunteer their time on the committees, participate in sessions, run programs in the background, help at the various community and social events, and bring that passion for their field to our Chapter. All of you are what drives our Chapter officers to make sure we bring value back to you every year! A sincere thank you does not seem enough to recognize all that you do for your fellow Chapter professionals!

If you are not one of our many volunteers already, I invite you to join / participate / contribute whatever and however you can. Opportunities are plentiful and there are no minimal requirements, please reach out to myself or any of the officers above for more information! Whatever you can offer is sincerely valued and appreciated.

Additionally, I would like to personally thank all of our wonderful and generous Corporate Sponsors, without whom the education events would not be possible!!! Not only do many of them sponsor the Chapter, but they attend the events, often speak and host various education sessions and participate in most of our Committees. Without their passion and continued advocacy for our field and our Chapter, we would not have the great support that allows us to do what we do in HFMA!

The Rochester Chapter leadership team has already begun planning a great slate of events to provide quality education, membership development, community service, and social programs. We look forward to a great year of value driven education, enjoyable social events, and enhanced community engagement.
