Day served as Kettering Health Network’s executive vice president of operations since November 2010. Prior to that she was vice president of Adventist Health in Roseville, California, where she developed integrated delivery networks to strategically advance the organization. She also served as vice president of hospital finance with financial oversight for six Adventist hospitals in central and southern California. Before that she was chief financial officer for Loma Linda University Medical Center.
As president of Kettering Health Network, Day will be responsible for providing operational oversight that ensures alignment of all hospitals and facilities that are part of the Kettering Health Network.
“Terri brings a tremendous amount of organizational and financial skills to her new position,” Manchur said. “She is highly qualified to guide the organization’s structure to fully operate as one network. This strategy will help to effectively utilize the strength of our network, so that patients will continue to have the same exceptional experi-
ence at each of our
hospitals and outpatient facilities.”
“The future requires that our operations and service lines be designed to support ease of access and coordination of care throughout our entire network,” Day noted. “We are a faith-based organization that puts patients at the center of care. Operating as one network means that we will be better able to care for patients who trust us to meet their health-care needs throughout their lifetime.”
