Catholic Health Initiatives Adds New Leaders to Executive Team as Part of National Finance-Leadership Restructuring


Catholic Health Initiatives, the nation’s third-largest faith-based health system, has added two new members to its senior executive team as part of a restructuring of the organization’s national finance group to provide additional operational leadership during a time of rapid change in the health care industry.

Danielle Weber has been named to the newly created position of senior vice president, revenue cycle. She will be responsible for all of CHI’s revenue-cycle programs and will direct the implementation of ICD10. In her role, she also will oversee revenue cycle as it applies to accountable-care organizations, bundled payments and other systems of delivering and paying for care.

Weber, who joined CHI in mid-May, most recently was senior vice president for revenue cycle at Novant Health, Winston-Salem, N.C., where she directed a revenue-cycle organization with approximately 1,500 full-time employees and an operating budget of more than $100 million. She was responsible for centralizing and consolidating functions to create a corporate revenue-cycle structure, and implemented a patient-friendly billing system featured in Healthcare Financial Management magazine. A certified public accountant, Weber is a graduate of Louisiana State University.

Todd Conklin has been named to the newly created position of senior vice president, financial operations and accounting, effective June 17. He will oversee operations finance, financial reporting and accounting, finance information technology services and financial systems.

Conklin formerly served as vice president and chief financial officer of hospital operations for SCL (Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth) Health System, which is based in Denver. He also has served as senior vice president, chief financial officer and treasurer at Exempla Healthcare in Denver since 2008, assuming his dual role at SCL when Exempla joined SCL in 2011. He received his MBA from Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University and his undergraduate degree from Illinois State University.

Earlier, CHI announced the promotion of Nick Barto, hired in September of 2012 as managing director of the Venture Capital Fund, to the newly created position of senior vice president, capital finance.
