Bradley Haws, MBA, associate vice president and chief financial officer for University of Iowa Health Care, has announced that he will leave his role at Iowa later this summer.
Haws has accepted the position of chief financial officer with Emory Healthcare, part of Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia.
“During his tenure with UI Health Care, Brad has contributed greatly and provided tremendous value to our organization,” says Brooks Jackson, MD, MBA, vice president for medical affairs and the Tyrone D. Artz Dean of the Carver College of Medicine. “I am grateful for Brad’s leadership and partnership. Thanks to his efforts, UI Health Care is well positioned to achieve new heights of excellence.”
Since joining UI Health Care in August 2018, Haws has helped steer the development of a new funding model, led efforts to revitalize the organization’s revenue cycle, and worked with others to develop innovative approaches such as the UI Health Network Rehabilitation Hospital. At the university-wide level, he collaborated on the public-private partnership for the university’s utility system.
Working with other administrative leaders, Haws helped identify and balance investments across the organization’s tripartite mission of patient care, research, and education. In addition, he has been instrumental in developing a long-term capital and debt plan to align with UI Health Care strategic priorities. Over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, Haws played an important role in stabilizing UI Health Care finances so that the organization could emerge from the crisis on solid financial footing.
Details on the appointment of an interim chief financial officer, and a national search for Haws’ successor, will be announced in the coming weeks.
