Health Care Association Appoints Lee Ferber President

Gettry Marcus CPA, P.C., announced today that Lee Ferber, CPA was appointed president of The National CPA Health Care Advisors Association (HCAA) for the 2014 calendar year. This will be Ferber’s fourth consecutive year in a leadership position with HCAA. Prior to being named president, he held the roles of vice president, treasurer and secretary.

Ferber, a resident of Huntington, New York, is a partner with Gettry Marcus CPA, P.C., a Top 200 firm nationally with offices in Woodbury, Long Island and New York City. A member of the firm since 1999, Ferber serves as partner-in-charge of the firm’s business advisory group and co-chair of its health care consulting group, where he provides accounting, tax, audit and consulting services to group practices, ambulatory surgery centers, diagnostic & treatment facilities, urgent care centers, single and multi-specialty “super-groups,” and other ancillary service providers.
“The health care market is experiencing unprecedented consolidation and change. Medical practices are being approached by hospital systems, super-groups, IPAs, and other health care providers who are looking to acquire or partner with physicians. This has created a situation where Medical practices now have to make very important strategic decisions as to how they will practice in the future,” said Ferber. “With this change comes greater responsibility for the CPA professionals who serve the health care industry. I am pleased to continue my affiliation with HCAA and look forward to increasing opportunities for members to share knowledge, resources and engage in meaningful discussion about these issues.”

In his role as president, Ferber will oversee efforts to provide educational and networking opportunities to 60 HCAA member firms, totaling over 120 individuals, who provide specialized accounting, tax and consulting services to the health care industry.

“Lee has the industry expertise to grow HCAA’s network and presence throughout the nation,” said Carolyn Davis, member coordinator, The Rainmaker Alliances. “We are confident in his ability to bring new educational resources to our members, helping them stay on the forefront of the health care industry.”
