WILMINGTON — CMH Regional Health System announced that it has brought on two new leaders to its administrative team — Tim Prestridge, now serving as Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer, and Kris Haasl, now serving as Chief Nursing Officer.
CMH CEO Greg Nielsen expressed his confidence in the two additions.
“Tim and Kris are both remarkably talented and come to us with significant experience,” Nielsen said. “Tim has extensive experience working administratively in private hospitals — previously serving at HCA hospitals — and Kris actually comes to us from one of our sister hospitals in the RegionalCare system. We’re very excited to welcome both of them to CMH and know that they will both be engaged members of the Clinton County community.”
Prestridge previously served three years as COO of Terre Haute Regional Hospital, a Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) hospital. Prior to his role as COO, Prestridge served two years as CFO, also at Terre Haute Regional Hospital, and three years as CFO and Chief Staffing Officer at HCA’s Alleghany Regional Hospital in Low Moor, Virginia.
Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, he earned his bachelor’s degree in Finance from Austin Peay State University and his MBA from Shorter College. He is a Fellow with the American College of Healthcare Executives and a member of the Healthcare Financial Management Association.
Haasl has more than 19 years of experience in healthcare administration, serving previously as Director of Emergency and Trauma Services, Nursing Administration, and Cardiology at RegionalCare’s Community Medical Center in Missoula, Montana. Prior to this role, Haasl served as Director of Referral and Transfer Center and Nurse On-Call Services, Director of CareFlight Air Medical Services, and Hospital Supervisor. She began her healthcare career as an RN, serving across a wide range of departments and specialties, including Med/Surge, Obstetrics, Pediatrics, Critical Care, Cardiology, Outpatient Surgery, Post Anesthesia Care, Emergency, Special Procedures, Rehabilitation, Orthopedics and Radiology.
