Oceans Healthcare taps CFO

Oceans Healthcare, a behavioral healthcare company, has appointed Eric Elliott CFO. 

Mr. Elliott has almost 20 years of experience in healthcare finance, with extensive experience with joint venture financial management and has overseen more than 100 acquisitions, according to a Nov. 8 news release. 

Most recently, he served as senior vice president of finance at home health company Elara Caring. He also spent 18 years at the LHC Group, which UnitedHealth Group acquired for $5.4 billion in February. He held several leadership positions at LHC Group, progressing to senior vice president of finance. 

"He understands the communities we serve and the teams who support our hospitals. He is the right fit to lead our financial operations to the next level as we focus on long-term expansion," Oceans CEO Stuart Archer said. "His acumen, deep industry expertise and forward-thinking mindset will be instrumental in propelling Oceans' growth and operational excellence, while supporting our company's mission of providing high-quality behavioral health care."

Oceans has doubled in size since 2017, primarily due to acquisitions, joint ventures, new facilities and the addition of new services, according to the company. It has opened five new behavioral health hospitals in the last year.
