The Healthcare Financial Management Association began the search for an alternate spot to hold its yearly meeting after floods in Nashville closed the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center.
HFMA begins search for new meeting venue
HFMA said in an e-mail to members that the conference will be held as scheduled June 20-23.
The event, which drew roughly 4,000 attendees last year, isn't scheduled for another seven weeks, but Gaylord Entertainment, owner of the resort, said that flood damage is expected to keep the hotel closed for several months. The nearby Cumberland River breached levees after record rainfalls of roughly 13.6 inches swamped Nashville during the first two days of May, exceeding the prior two-day record of roughly 6.7 inches, according to the National Weather Service.
