THE HCA SHUF­FLE / John­son named pres­i­dent in a re­or­ga­ni­za­tion that cre­ates a com­pany to mar­ket billing, staffing and sup­ply-chain ser­vices to providers.

HCA named Mil­ton John­son pres­i­dent in a re­or­ga­ni­za­tion that shuf­fles a num­ber of top ex­ec­u­tives and cre­ates a new com­pany that will mar­ket billing, staffing and sup­ply-chain ser­vices to health­care providers. The changes are ef­fec­tive im­me­di­ately, the com­pany said in a news re­lease. John­son, the Nashville-based hos­pi­tal com­pany’s chief fi­nan­cial of­fi­cer and a di­rec­tor, will con­tinue as HCA’s fi­nance chief, ac­cord­ing to the re­lease. Bev­erly Wal­lace was named pres­i­dent of HCA’s newly cre­ated busi­ness ser­vice sub­sidiary from her prior role as HCA shared ser­vices group pres­i­dent. Dr. Jonathan Per­lin, HCA’s chief med­i­cal of­fi­cer, was named pres­i­dent of HCA’s clin­i­cal and physi­cian ser­vices group. Sam Hazen, pre­vi­ously pres­i­dent of HCA’s west­ern group, was named pres­i­dent of op­er­a­tions. HCA’s out­pa­tient ser­vices pres­i­dent, Bruce Moore, has been named pres­i­dent of op­er­a­tions and ser­vice line in­te­gra­tion. HCA has of­fered some rev­enue-cy­cle ser­vices to other hos­pi­tals since early 2006 through a sub­sidiary called Na­tional Pa­tient Ac­counts Ser­vices. The com­pany also is the man­ag­ing part­ner and one of six equity hold­ers of a group pur­chas­ing or­ga­ni­za­tion, HealthTrust Pur­chas­ing Group. It was not clear whether the new sub­sidiary plans to ex­pand those ser­vices, for ex­am­ple, with a full rev­enue-cy­cle out­source of­fer­ing. An HCA spokesman de­clined to com­ment.
