Bellin CFO steps down following merger with Gundersen

Jim Dietsche, executive vice president and chief financial officer of Bellin Health, is stepping down from his position Jan. 6.

The move comes just over a month after Green Bay, Wis.-based Bellin and La Crosse, Wis.-based Gundersen Health completed their merger to create a $2.4 billion organization.

The combined entity will have 11 hospitals and 14,000 employees. While the two systems said at the time they don't anticipate layoffs with the merger, they did make clear an aim to consolidate certain areas, including finance. 

A Jan. 4 press release shared with Becker's did not indicate any connection between the merger and Mr. Dietsche's departure. 

Mr. Dietsche began working at Bellin in 2005 and has been the system's CFO since 2020.

"Jim's contributions to Bellin Health's business and finance operations are immeasurable, and we thank him for all he has done to ensure we remain on solid financial footing — now, and in the years to come," Chris Woleske, executive vice president of Bellin and Gundersen Health, said in statement.
