Lakeview Regional Medical Center is pleased to announce that Nicole Castleberry has been hired as the new Chief Financial Officer for the hospital, effective March 1, 2015. Castleberry most recently served as Vice President of Finance for HCA’s Parkridge Health System in Chattanooga, TN.
“Ms. Castleberry is a proven leader who brings a wide range of experiences and knowledge to Lakeview Regional,” states Bret Kolman, Chief Executive Officer of Lakeview Regional Medical Center. “She is a highly respected individual and an enthusiastic and experienced achiever who will be a tremendous asset to our hospital.” Castleberry’s strong financial and analytical abilities coupled with her communication skills, made her a key resource for leaders throughout the Parkridge market. She has overseen financial reporting and budgeting for that market’s four hospitals, and developed models to support major capital investments within the system.
Castleberry received her Master’s in Business and Bachelor in Finance from the University of Tennessee in Chattanooga. During her time at HCA Parkridge Health System, she quickly progressed from a Financial Analyst to a Market Controller position, before her promotion to Vice President. In addition, in recognition of her ongoing potential, she was accepted into HCA’s CFO Development Program in May 2014. Nicole and her husband, Chad, have two daughters, McKinley (8) and Baylee (4).
