HMA names Gillespie to new finance post
Gillespie, 53, moves from his post as senior vice president and chief financial officer for HMA's division 3, a title he's held since May.
HMA officials said Gillespie's new role comes in anticipation of two recent deals.
HMA paid off $410 million in debt to acquire seven-hospital Tennova Healthcare in Knoxville, Tenn. The company also recently signed a letter of intent to jointly operate five hospitals owned by Integris Health of Oklahoma City.
“Kerry is an outstanding healthcare leader who will help us facilitate our plans of enhancing our local operations, including the development of our nursing and physician practice management services, allowing our Naples-based team to better support our hospitals and fulfill our mission of enabling America's best local health care,” said Gary Newsome, HMA's president and CEO in a news release.
