Nicholas Barcellona will begin his tenure leading the organization’s financial unit in July.

Nicholas Barcellona—who currently serves as the chief financial officer for Temple Health—will take over as the CFO for West Virginia University Health System, a $4 billion healthcare provider, this summer.

Barcellona succeeds previous CFO Douglas Coffman, who announced his retirement in 2022, following a 30-year career with the organization.

"I am very excited that Nick will be joining us to provide financial leadership across our network of hospitals and clinics," Albert Wright, CEO of the West Virginia University Health System said in the release announcing Barcellona’s appointment. "I am also grateful to Doug for his outstanding leadership and fully confident that Nick will build on Doug’s legacy of financial excellence and success for our Health System and its hospitals."

Before joining Temple in 2020, Barcellona served in several senior financial and operational leadership roles at UPMC in Pittsburgh. 

"I am deeply honored to have the opportunity to join the WVU Medicine team as it continues its journey of building a truly exceptional health system for the people of West Virginia and beyond," Barcellona said in the release.
