CFO Gary Conner: Maintaining Market Share at Southcoast Health System
Southcoast Health System, a three-hospital, non-profit system based in New Bedford, Mass., brought Gary Conner on board as CFO in November 2012, and it has since received favorable ratings.
In January, Moody's Investors Service affirmed an "A2" rating on $103 million of outstanding debt and assigned the same rating to $60 million in bonds soon be issued. The system holds the largest share in primary care with a 44 percent claim in its southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island markets. Southcoast also recorded 247 days cash on hand and a 199 percent cash-to-debt margin at the close of fiscal year 2012.
Mr. Conner previously held a CFO role at City of Hope Cancer Center in Duarte, Calif., and was vice president of financial operations for Dignity Health in Pasadena, Calif. He earned his bachelor's degree in business from California Lutheran University and his MBA from Sonoma State University.
