By MICHAEL KITCH, LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — Wayne Bennett, who has served as chief financial officer of Franklin Community Heath Network in Farmington, Maine, since 2012, has been appointed to succeed Henry Lipman as chief financial officer of LRGHealthcare. Lipman will leave LRGHealthcare at the end of the month after 32 years with the organization, and Bennett will begin his tenure on Feb. 13.
In a prepared statement Kevin Donovan, president and chief executive officer of LRGHealthcare, said that "we are fortunate to have an individual of Wayne's caliber join our organization. I know he will have a meaningful impact on our continued evolution as a high-quality and well-functioning health care provider."
Likewise, Bennett said, "I look forward to joining the community and working with the outstanding medical staff, dedicated employees and board of directors of LRGHealthcare, who have demonstrated to me their commitment to continue to provide the Lakes Region with the quality health care it deserves."
Bennett has spent three decades directing and planning the financial affairs of health care care systems. The Franklin Community Health Network, with net revenues of $80 million, is a rural, nonprofit health care system. Under Bennett's direction, the financial performance of the organization has consistently improved and he also played a key role in integrating the organization into the Main Health, a consortium of more than a dozen providers working together to ensure the highest quality of care and treatment for the communities they serve.
Bennett has also served as vice president of finance at Central Main Healthcare in Lewiston, director of finance at Prince George's Hospital in Cheverly, Maryland, and as chief financial officer at both Mercy Health Systems in Portland, Maine and Mt. Ascutney Hospital in Windsor, Vermont, where Donovan was president and chief executive officer before joining LRGHealthcare.
