CFO Diane Blake: Meeting Critical Needs at Cascade Medical Center

Share on Facebook
Cascade Medical Center in Leavenworth, Wash., a city of fewer than 2,000 people, has just seven beds. It's located smack in the middle of Washington state, two hours east of Seattle, nestled in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains.

Diane Blake is CFO of Cascade Medical Center.What it lacks in patient volume, it compensates in natural appeal. Cascade Medical Center CFO Diane Blake helped to highlight this through a six-year renovation and expansion project completed in 2011 that gave the formerly sterile facility a timber facelift.

Cascade Medical Center is a county-owned critical access hospital that recorded $13.3 million in gross charges last year, according to the American Hospital Directory.

Ms. Blake earned her degree in finance from Gonzaga University and worked for Cascade Medical Center for six years as accounting director and controller before taking on the CFO role.
