Froedtert Health, a three-hospital system with operations around Milwaukee, has named a new CFO as part of an executive shake-up announced this month.
Froedtert names new CFO
Jeffrey Van De Kreeke, 54, senior vice president of finance for the system, has been appointed CFO. He first joined the system as controller of flagship facility Froedtert Hospital in Milwaukee in 2001, a Froedtert news release said.
Charles Runge, who has worked at Froedtert Hospital since 1995, has been named senior vice president of planning and service line development for the system, leading development of clinical services and collaboration with other systems.
Other changes include two incumbent executives: Joseph Hill was named vice president and chief diversity officer, and Patricia Ruff has been named vice president of clinical integration and payer strategies. And Paul Spencer was hired as assistant vice president for managed care, following a role as vice president of network management for United Healthcare of Wisconsin, the Froedtert news release said.
The changes follow the June announcement that Froedtert Health President and CEO William Petasnick has dropped his title as president of the system. Though he remains CEO, two president-successors were named: Catherine Jacobson became president of the system, while Cathy Buck was named president of Froedtert Hospital.
