August 29, 2007 – Premier Health Partners today announced the appointment of new chief financial officers for each of its three hospitals.

Currently CFO for Good Samaritan, he previously served as CFO for Premier HealthNet, the largest group of primary care physicians in the Miami Valley. Shelton’s new position is effective October 1. He succeeds Tom Duncan, whose appointment as CFO for Premier Health Partners was announced in July.
Tom Curtin has been named CFO for Good Samaritan Hospital, succeeding Shelton. Since 1999, Curtin has been vice president and chief financial officer of Fidelity Health Care, Premier Health Partners’ provider of comprehensive home health care services.

Atrium Medical Center, a new 250-bed hospital, will open in December, succeeding Middletown Regional Hospital.
