About the Award:
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. Established in 1960, the Frederick T. Muncie Gold Award was created as part of the Founders Merit Award Series, which acknowledges 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 Muncie Gold Award was named in honor of Frederick T. Muncie, one of the organizing founders of the American Association of Hospital Accountants (now HFMA). Muncie was elected the association’s first president in 1947 and helped Chicago area hospital accountants organize the association’s first chapter.
