Northeast Georgia Health System, or NGHS, has a new top official at its helm.
On Wednesday, Brian D. Steines was named chief financial officer for the health care system that has three hospital campuses and serves more than 800,000 people across the north Georgia region.
“Brian comes to NGHS with years of leadership and expertise in healthcare finance,” said Carol Burrell, president and CEO of NGHS. “We are fortunate to have such an experienced and qualified leader – especially in this time of change in health care.”
Steines said he is excited by the new opportunity.
“I’m honored to join NGHS, which has a tremendous national reputation, and continue its solid track record of balancing margin and mission to meet the health care needs of the community,” he said. “My wife and I, along with our two youngest sons, are already enjoying the area and calling it home.”
Most recently, Steines hails from the University of Missouri Health Care and the MU School of Medicine in Columbia, Missouri, where he served as CFO.
That system has five facilities, a medical school, a Level 1 trauma center, 600 employed physicians and 500 residents.
Prior to being at MU, Steines served as the vice president of financial operations for Scottsdale Lincoln Health Network’s Arizona market.
He holds a master’s degree in business and health care administration from the University of Phoenix, Arizona, and a bachelor’s degree in business and public administration/accounting from the University of Arizona. He is also a certified public accountant.
