January 27, 2017 - Southeast Georgia Health System Welcomes New VP & CFO

Southeast Georgia Health System is pleased to announce Janice L. Dunn, MBA, as its new vice president and chief financial officer (CFO). Dunn replaces Michael D. Scherneck, who has continued to serve as the CFO since his appointment as the Health System’s president and CEO in August 2015.

Dunn brings 27 years experience in health care financial management, and as CFO will be responsible for optimizing the Health System’s financial strategy in tandem with excellence in patient care and health outcomes. Her areas of responsibilities include: admissions, finance, information systems, medical records, patient financial services, reimbursement, resource management, revenue cycle and supply chain.

Before joining the Health System, Dunn most recently served as CFO for Saint Joseph Health System in Mishawaka and Plymouth, Ind. As a clinically integrated health system with two hospitals and more than 100 employed providers, Dunn helped transform the organization’s fiscal performance resulting in high operating cash flows while continuing to focus on patient care and outcomes. This was achieved through a proactive response to health care reform, fostering fiscal accountability and contingency planning.

Prior to that, she was the vice president and CFO at St. Joseph Medical Center in Towson, Md., after holding the same position at Southwest General Health Center in Middleburg Heights, Ohio. At both hospitals she implemented growth strategies through the implementation of strategic performance improvement plans.

Dunn earned her bachelor’s of science degree in accounting from the University of Akron in Akron, Ohio, and received her master’s degree in business administration from Cleveland State University in Cleveland, Ohio.
