Poinciana, FL - Poinciana Medical Center, an HCA Healthcare hospital, recently appointed Chris Conn as its chief financial officer, effective Sept. 10.
Conn previously served as the assistant CFO at Brandon Regional Hospital and controller of Northside Hospital. Both HCA Healthcare facilities are in the Tampa Bay area. At Brandon Regional, Conn was instrumental in the hospital’s strategic planning efforts and capital improvements, including expansions to its neonatal intensive care unit and interventional radiology program. He joined HCA Healthcare in 2010.
Conn earned a bachelor’s degree in accounting and finance/economics from Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tenn., and is pursuing an MBA at the University of South Florida. He is a certified public accountant and recent graduate of HCA’s Executive Development Program.
“Chris is a strategic leader who’s highly adept at navigating the financial landscape of healthcare,” said Chris Cosby, CEO of Poinciana Medical Center. “His expertise will be invaluable as we continue growing to meet our community’s needs.”
Conn will relocate to the Poinciana area with his wife and son and the family will be welcoming their second child this winter.
