Mark T. Anderson will succeed Shirley Hsing as chief financial officer of North Oaks Health System. Anderson’s appointment follows an extensive national search for a CFO to succeed Hsing upon her retirement scheduled for Dec. 31, 2018. He will join the North Oaks team on July 16 and work closely with Hsing over the next six months to ensure a smooth transition.
Anderson has three decades of financial leadership experience at the CFO level gained on both the not-for-profit and for-profit sides of healthcare. For the past seven years, Anderson has served as CFO for Lane Regional Medical Center in Zachary. Prior to that, he held healthcare financial leadership positions for organizations in Virginia, Texas, and Louisiana. Professionally, he is a member of the Healthcare Financial Management Association, American College of Healthcare Executives, and Louisiana Hospital Association (LHA).
Anderson earned a bachelor’s degree in finance from Louisiana Tech University in Ruston and a master’s in business administration from Regis University in Denver, Colo.
“Mark’s knowledge of Louisiana hospital service district facilities, like North Oaks Health System, and experience as a member of the LHA’s CFO expert panel make him uniquely qualified to lead our financial strategic plan,” said North Oaks Health System President and Chief Executive Officer Michele Sutton, FACHE. “We are thrilled that he is joining our team.”
As a teen, Anderson attained the rank of Eagle Scout, which is the highest rank attainable in the Boy Scouts of America. Anderson shares that this instilled in him a calling to leadership and community service. Each community that he has called “home” has benefitted from his active participation in service organizations, such as the Kiwanis Club, Lions Club, Chamber of Commerce, and YMCA.
