Handkins promoted to system office

June 20, 2013

Shelly Handkins, regional chief financial officer, is taking a new position as system vice president of revenue. Handkins has been a finance leader in Oregon for 25 years. Before becoming the Oregon Region's CFO, she served as CFO for Providence Health Plan.

William Olson will assume the interim role of chief financial officer for Oregon. In his current role as CFO for Oregon hospitals, Olson leads a team whose accountability spans the regional delivery system operations.

Dave Underriner, Oregon chief executive, says the search for Handkins' replacement will begin immediately.

"We have a deep bench and very strong leadership in Oregon," Underriner said, "and we will continue to support our ministry in Oregon and by working with our colleagues across the system."
