Healthcare CUs form collaborative association
ANAHEIM, Calif.  (4/18/12)--Fifty credit unions serving the healthcare industry have joined to form the Healthcare Credit Union Association (HCUA).

The HCUA has member credit unions in several states, according to a press release. The group originally began in 2005, led by co-founders Maury Pilver, retired CEO of Healthcare's Cooperative CU, Jacksonville, Fla., and John Saatela, CEO of CarePoint CU, Anaheim, Calif.

HCUA's mission is to promote the growth, viability and unity of healthcare credit unions.

"From the beginning, our vision was simple but powerful," says Saatela. "We wanted to create an alliance of healthcare credit unions to exchange ideas, share resources and discuss the challenges and opportunities that face healthcare credit unions today. We're amazed at how well our colleagues have responded to this collaborative community."

The group seeks to facilitate opportunities for partnership and collaboration among its membership, Saatela said.

The HCUA will conduct a conference Sept. 27-28 in Seattle.
