Hutchinson Awarded HFMA Medal of Honor
Sheboygan, Wis. Donna Hutchinson, Chief Financial Officer for St. Mary's Hospital Medical Center in Green Bay and St. Nicholas Hospital in Sheboygan was awarded the Medal of Honor by the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA). Conferred by nomination of the Chapter Board of Directors, this prestigious award recognizes an individual who 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.
Hutchinson has been with St. Mary's Hospital Medical Center for 25 years, expanding her role to include the CFO position for St. Nicholas last year. She has worked in not for profit healthcare most of her career, holding a variety of financial roles in hospitals in Maine, Missouri and Wisconsin.
Hutchinson is the outgoing National HFMA Regional Executive for Region 7, which is comprised of the Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin HFMA Chapters. She is also a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives (FACHE) and a member of the Wisconsin Hospital Association Finance and Payment Council.
She has served as a past President of the Wisconsin chapter of HFMA, Chairperson of St. Mary's Hospital Medical Center's Credit Union, and a past charter member of the TEMPO International chapter in Green Bay. Hutchinson completed a two-year term on the HFMA Advisory Council (2006-2008). She begins a three-year term in June on the Board of Examiners for National HFMA.
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.
St. Mary's and St. Nicholas Hospital are part of Hospital Sisters Health System (HSHS), a 13-hospital health care system in Illinois and Wisconsin. Together with St. Vincent Hospital in Green Bay, the two facilities comprise the HSHS Division Eastern Wisconsin.
