Financial officer leaves PDH for Sacramento

John Nadone, chief financial officer at Plumas District Hospital (PDH), tendered his resignation yesterday, effective May 20.

Soon after, he will begin work with the California Hospital Association (CHA) as vice president of finance policy. He will be responsible for providing leadership on state administrative and regulatory issues related to health care finance.

The association represents nearly 400 California hospitals and health systems in legislative, regulatory and legal matters at the state and federal levels.

Nadone, who has been with PDH 5-1/2 years, said, “I’ve enjoyed working here. We’ve made great gains in the hospital’s financial status.

“This is a change in my career. I’ve always been on the hospital side for the benefit of the hospital, now I’ll be working to benefit all hospitals (in California).”

During his tenure at PDH, Nadone has worked to put the hospital in the black, the only one of the county’s three hospitals to consistently achieve this status. He was instrumental in achieving “critical access hospital” status for PDH, resulting in improved MediCal and Medicare reimbursement.

In addition, Nadone improved the hospital’s cash position with reductions in the number of outstanding days in accounts receivable and payables, measures of fiscal health.

Linda Jameson, interim chief executive officer, said, “I’m losing my right-hand man. I’ve loved working with John and will miss his confidence and leadership. This is a great opportunity for him.”

District board president Valerie Flannigan said, “John has done an excellent job for PDH and will be sorely missed. He has an opportunity that will be interesting and exciting for him and his family and we wish him the very best.“

For the immediate future, Jameson said Controller Cindy Crosslin would become the interim finance director until the position is filled permanently. Jameson also said the position would be posted internally and on the hospital website.
