OSAGE BEACH, Mo. — Lake Regional Health System is pleased to welcome Henry Zeisel, CPA, FACHE, who will serve as the organization’s senior vice president of Finance and chief financial officer, beginning Feb. 10.
Zeisel, a certified public accountant and fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives, has more than 30 years of health care experience. Before joining Lake Regional, he worked for AMITA Health based in Lisle, Illinois, serving as chief financial officer for the organization’s northwest region and post acute enterprise.
Lake Regional conducted an extensive search to fill the CFO position, which oversees the health system’s Accounting, Health Information Management, Patient Financial Services, Patient Access and Materials Management departments, in addition to providing reports and analysis to the Finance Committee of the Lake Regional Health System Board of Directors.
Dane Henry, FACHE, chief executive officer of Lake Regional Health System, said he is pleased with the experience Zeisel brings to the administration team.
“Health care finance can be incredibly challenging,” Dane Henry said. “I believe Henry’s track record of promoting growth and improving efficiency within large, complicated health systems will translate into success for Lake Regional. His positive demeanor and mentoring spirit will engage employees throughout the organization in continuing our mission to provide exceptional care while operating in a sound fiscal manner.”
Zeisel has a bachelor’s degree in business administration and accountancy from the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana. He will replace David Halsell, Lake Regional senior vice president of Finance and chief financial officer, who retires this month after more than seven years of service to the health system and more than 40 years in health care.
