CFO Peg Burnette Announces Retirement Plans

Peg Burnette, CPA, FHFMA, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, has announced her plans to return to retirement on May 5, 2023, or once her successor has been named.

Peg joined Stormont Vail in April 2021, following her retirement from Denver Health and Hospital Authority after nearly 25 years of service as a finance executive, including 16 years as the organization’s CFO. Her plans are to return to retirement to enjoy travel and other pursuits. Stormont Vail has engaged a national search firm, Gallagher, to start immediately on the recruitment process for our next CFO.

In Peg’s time with Stormont Vail she has made a vital and visible impact on the organization’s financial practices and governmental relations. She has developed a knowledgeable and competent financial management team that will continue to serve our organization well. She has brought in new productivity measures that ensure our staffing and volumes are tied to budgets and provide for greater financial accountability and operational improvement.

As CFO, Peg has been responsible for the health system’s financial performance, including financial audit, financial management, revenue cycle services, and supply chain management. Information Systems also reports to Peg.

We wish Peg the best of luck in her retirement and know that her time at Stormont Vail will have lasting impact on the organization.
