Rhonda An­der­son has been named CFO at St. Louis­based As­cen­sion Health, the na­tion’s largest not-for-profit health sys­tem, ef­fec­tive Oct. 13.

An­der­son, 55, serves as CFO of Columbia St. Mary’s, an As­cen­sion af­fil­i­ate based in Mil­wau­kee. She has been with Columbia St. Mary’s since 2009 and also has 20 years of ex­ec­u­tive ex­pe­ri­ence at St. Agnes Hos­pi­tal in Bal­ti­more. An­der­son will re­place Kather­ine Ar­buckle, who is re­tir­ing. An­thony Sper­anzo still serves as CFO of par­ent or­ga­ni­za­tion As­cen­sion. An­der­son will over­see the fi­nan­cial op­er­a­tions of As­cen­sion’s largest sub­sidiary and work closely with Sper­anzo and his fi­nance team.

Ed­ward Chad­wick has been named CFO of Henry Ford Health Sys­tem, Detroit, which has re­cently strug­gled with its fi­nances and faces fierce com­pe­ti­tion from a newly merged sys­tem.

Chad­wick, 55, most re­cently served as CFO of Wake For­est Bap­tist Med­i­cal Cen­ter, an aca­demic health sys­tem based in Win­ston-Salem, N.C., that has faced sev­eral fis­cal ob­sta­cles of its own. Dur­ing Chad­wick’s ten­ure, Wake For­est Bap­tist slogged through a costly elec­tronic health-record project that led, in part, to a credit-rat­ing down­grade.

Henry Ford faces new com­pe­ti­tion from a new area mega-sys­tem, Beau­mont Health, which this month finalized its three-sys­tem merger.
