Brad Membel will step into the position effective April 24, 2023.
PeaceHealth, a Vancouver, Washington-based not-for-profit Catholic health system offering care to communities in Washington, Oregon, and Alaska, with over $2 billion in total revenue, has announced that Brad Membel will take over as the new chief financial officer for the PeaceHealth Oregon network beginning April 24, 2023.
Before joining PeaceHealth Membel served as vice president of finance for Saint Joseph Hospital in Denver. He brings over 20 years of experience in healthcare operations and financial management to his new role as CFO for PeaceHealth Oregon. PeaceHealth has approximately 16,000 caregivers, a group practice with more than 900 providers, and 10 medical centers serving both urban and rural communities throughout the Northwest.
Membel isn’t the only new face in the PeaceHealth community. Recently the organization announced that Lorna Gober, MD, has joined PeaceHealth’s Northwest network as chief medical officer. On March 13, 2023, Amber Asbjornsen became the chief development officer for the PeaceHealth Northwest network.
PeaceHealth isn’t just expanding its leadership team, the organization announced in early March that it has partnered with Lifepoint Rehabilitation, a business unit of Lifepoint Health, to build a 67,000-square-foot rehabilitation facility in Springfield, Oregon, with 50 private rooms and nearly double the patient capacity of the existing PeaceHealth acute rehabilitation unit.
"Both PeaceHealth and Lifepoint Rehabilitation share a strong commitment to providing high-quality care," Todd Salnas, chief executive of the PeaceHealth Oregon network, said in the announcement. "We are pleased to partner with Lifepoint Rehabilitation as we expand access to critically needed inpatient rehabilitation services in our community. We look forward to providing both an enhanced level of care and an increased access to care for rehabilitation patients throughout the region."
