UI Hospitals And Clinics CFO Takes New Position

Associate director and chief financial officer (CFO) Anthony DeFurio will depart University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics on Nov. 15 to become CFO of the University of Colorado Hospital in Denver, Colo. 

DeFurio came to UI Hospitals and Clinics in October 2003 after several years at Sisters of Charity Providence Hospitals in Columbia, S.C. Prior to that, he held the position of CFO at Catholic Health Initiatives in Denver, Colo. 

"I know that Denver holds a special attraction for Mr. DeFurio, and I recognized that he might well return there someday," said Donna Katen-Bahensky, director and CEO of UI Hospitals and Clinics. "Clearly, Mr. DeFurio will be missed at UI Hospitals and Clinics, but he has my full support and best wishes as he makes the transition to his new position."

Katen-Bahensky announced that Dan Rieber, interim director of Finance and Accounting Services, has agreed to assume additional responsibilities during what is expected to be a brief transition period. Rieber is a certified public accountant with more than 10 years of experience in health care accounting and financial management. His previous roles have included: associate director, Financial Systems & Analysis; manager, Business Solutions; business analyst; senior financial analyst; and corporate accountant. Most recently, Rieber was the hospital lead for PeopleSoft General Ledger implementation, and he has been instrumental in automating numerous business processes such as productivity-based budgeting, productivity tracking, service line profitability analysis, revenue integrity analysis and managed care modeling.
