New PHIMA Executive Director

Dear PHIMA Members,

It is my pleasure to announce that Linda McLinden, RHIA, has accepted the position as our new Executive Director.

Linda has been an AHIMA member since 1987.    She has served on the State and Local Level since 1992.    She served PHIMA as an Executive Board member in 2003-2004 and as President of LVHIMA in 1992-1993.    She has a long history of volunteerism with community organizations where she has experience in membership development, creating fundraisers and initiating training sessions.

Linda is a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh with a BS in HIM.  She lives in Allentown, PA. 

Since 1987 to present, she has operated successfully holding management and teaching positions in HIM.   In these venues, Linda has scanned the spectrum of business management from consulting, to designing and managing a new HIM department, to most recently as a member of core project team that oversees the implementation of an organization-wide electronic health record.   

On behalf of PHIMA, we feel that Linda is more than qualified for the position of Executive Director. 

Linda will begin on June 1st.   There will be a transition period between June 1st and June 15th while Linda is in training.  Lorri Luciano will stay on until June 15th to handle the preparation. 

Letís all welcome Linda to PHIMA!!

The new phone number and address for PHIMA will be:

P.O. Box 3512
Allentown, PA 18106-0512

Phone:  610-554-7928
