Bayhealth is proud to announce Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Mike Tretina, CPA, MBA, FHFMA, FACHE, has been named to Becker’s Hospital Review’s 2015 list of “150 Hospital and Health System CFOs to Know.” This is the fourth year in a row Tretina has received the honor. He joined Bayhealth in late 2013 from Mary Greeley Medical Center in Iowa.
The individuals included on the Becker’s Hospital Review list are men and women who help navigate their organizations through the stormy seas of health care reform during the shift to value-based health care. To develop the list, the Becker’s Hospital Review editorial team considered nominations, reviewed prior lists from the publication and conducted editorial research.
Tretina said being recognized on the list again is exciting and points to the success of the organizations – Bayhealth and Mary Greeley – and finance departments he worked for when honored. “It’s really recognition of the teams and the financial teams of Bayhealth and Mary Greeley Medical Center,” Tretina said.
During Tretina’s tenure at Bayhealth, he’s accomplished much to be proud of including doubling Bayhealth’s community benefit impact and identifying close to 90 new revenue sources or expense reduction opportunities, which leads to better operating performance. Being successful financially allows us to provide more financial assistance, much needed equipment, and gives us the ability to attract and retain the best people.
“I’m a big believer in service. The goal for us is to provide the best patient experience possible and ultimately provide the best outcomes for our patients in the community,” Tretina said. “Bayhealth has such a bright future. This is where I want to be.”
