Bartlett Regional Hospital has a new Chief Financial Officer.
Certified Public Accountant Ken Brough (pronounced Bruff) will start in October. He’s the second new executive to be hired by the city-owned hospital this year. Chief Executive Officer Chris Harff has been on the job just two weeks.
Brough comes from Wyoming, where he is CFO for Star Valley Medical Center in Afton. The non-profit hospital is a joint acute care / nursing home operation. Brough also has managed professional accounting companies and was a CPA in the Salt Lake City office of the financial services company KPMG.
He holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Utah State University.
According to a news release from the hospital, Brough has traveled extensively to Alaska for work and play. His daughter and husband own a sport fishing operation in Southeast Alaska.
For more than two decades, Bartlett Regional Hospital has been run by an outside management company. Last year, the board of directors decided to hire its own CEO and CFO.
