Amerinet CEO Todd Ebert replaces Curtis Rooney at GPO trade group HSCA

Amerinet CEO Todd Ebert has left the group purchasing company to become president and CEO of the Healthcare Supply Chain Association, the GPO trade group announced Monday. Curtis Rooney, HSCA's leader since 2005, has resigned.

Ebert had been president and CEO of St. Louis-based Amerinet since 2007 and joined the company in 1992. He left Amerinet at the end of June.

Washington-based HSCA did not give an explanation for Rooney's resignation. Rooney will accept another executive position with association management company SmithBucklin Corp., according to the HSCA news release.

Ebert, a former chair of HSCA and immediate past chair of the Healthcare Industry Supply Chain Institute, will move from Amerinet's home base of St. Louis to Washington, D.C., to head the trade group. During his roughly 23 years at Amerinet, Ebert served in a variety of leadership roles, including VP of its pharmacy program, president of its private-label company and president and COO.

A registered pharmacist, Ebert came to Amerinet from Intermountain Healthcare, Salt Lake City. He's also served as a pharmaceutical consultant and managed pharmacies.

Jody Hatcher, president of offering delivery and operations for the VHA-UHC Alliance and immediate past HSCA chair, said in a statement that Ebert was a “natural choice” to lead the trade group as it “navigates the new opportunities and challenges of 21st century healthcare.”

Correction, July 14, 2015:
A previous version of this article incorrectly stated that Amerinet had not yet announced Ebert's departure and Jody Hatcher's title was incorrect.
