NKCH CFO to Know

For the second consecutive year, Becker’s Hospital Review has named Jim McNey, senior vice president and chief financial officer of North Kansas City Hospital, to its list of “150 Hospital and Health System CFOs to Know.”

“There are more than four thousand hospitals across the United States,” McNey said. “To be recognized on this short list among such great financial leaders is truly an honor.”

In a statement, Becker’s Hospital Review explained CFOs were selected for their ability to help organizations navigate today’s healthcare challenges. Leaders were identified through an editorial process that included reviewing nominations and accomplishments of CFOs across the country.

“For 13 years, North Kansas City Hospital has benefited from Jim’s financial expertise,” said Peggy Schmitt, president and CEO of NKCH. “With the continuous evolution of healthcare finance and reimbursement, we rely on his knowledge and experience to help successfully position our organization for the future.”

McNey oversees strategic and operational financial services for the hospital and its subsidiaries. He serves as a director and officer on the board of Meritas Health Corporation and the Gashland Clinic Physicians, Inc. Before joining NKCH in 2004, McNey worked for more than 20 years in healthcare finance and business services in Texas.
