Ross Turney, a Pittsburg State University graduate, is returning to Pittsburg from Yuma, Arizona, to begin the role of Vice President of Finance at Community Health Center of Southeast Kansas. Turney started his new position on Monday, Nov. 29.
Born and raised in Basehor, Kansas, Turney missed his family who still lives in the Midwest. In fact, it was his parents who engrained the mentality of consideration and compassion for others that inspired him to work for a Federally Qualified Health Center like CHC/SEK.
“What better way can one give back than to help alleviate some of the stresses of one’s healthcare,” Turney said. “And since I wasn’t smart enough to become a nurse or provider, I opted to help from the financial aspect. FQHC’s are the perfect representation of alleviating such an important need for underserved communities and I am thankful that I can help support this in some small way.”
Turney has a long history working in healthcare, and was formerly Chief Information Officer at Sunset Community Health Center, in Somerton, AZ, where he also served as the Director of Revenue Cycle and Health Data. He also previously worked as a manager of Revenue Cycle Business Systems at Alameda Health System in Oakland, California, and as a Senior Health Consultant for Deloitte Consulting in New York.
