Modern Healthcare - - NEWS -

Hule­feld has been ex­ec­u­tive vice pres­i­dent and COO of Ochsner Health Sys­tem for the past five years, but first joined the or­ga­ni­za­tion in 1998. The not-for-profit aca­demic health­care sys­tem in­cludes 30 owned, man­aged and af­fil­i­ated hos­pi­tals as well as more than 75 re­gional health cen­ters. Ochsner has more than 17,000 em­ploy­ees and 1,100 physi­cians in 90 med­i­cal spe­cial­ties, con­ducts more than 600 clin­i­cal re­search stud­ies yearly and has an­nual rev­enue of $ 3.4 bil­lion. Low­er­ing sup­ply chain ex­penses and adding new physi­cian- driven ini­tia­tives re­duced vari­a­tion, which has helped Ochsner cut costs by nearly $ 200 mil­lion since 2013. Be­fore be­ing named sys­tem COO, Hule­feld was the se­nior vice pres­i­dent and CEO of Ochsner Med­i­cal Cen­ter.
