Nick Barto has been named to the newly created position of senior vice president, capital finance, at Catholic Health Initiatives, the nation’s third-largest faith-based health system.

Barto joined CHI in September 2012 as managing director of the organization’s Venture Capital Group, providing strategic leadership in investments, mergers and acquisitions and alternative financial strategies.
