The Financial Planning Department is committed to assisting the hospital reach its full potential through sound financial and business decision making. The department directs the budgeting function of the organization; prescribes the financial reporting and controls to departments; develops all business financial analysis and financial statement projections of strategic corporate initiatives; analyzes volume and utilization trends; and performs long-range financial modeling and forecasting.
The department is comprised of a financially disciplined team that believes in accountability, transparency and the ultimate success of the organization.
Because Financial Planning works with every department in the hospital, there are numerous career paths one could take from this area. Moving from Financial Planning to Strategic Planning, for example, is a natural progression as similar skill sets are needed for business plan development. Working as a business manager within a division is another avenue, if a more specialized focus is desired. Accounting might be another area of consideration due to similar required skills (e.g. reading financial statements, understanding debits and credits).
Every year analysts are allowed to attend several local and/or national seminars to keep up-to-date on the healthcare industry and to sharpen their skills. A Health Care Financial Management Association (HFMA) membership is paid for by the department. We are committed to assisting individuals in maintaining and keeping professional certifications (e.g. a CPA license), and any time needed during the day for short education seminars is allowed as education time.
Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
