Former UAMS CFO reportedly out at new job

Posted By on Thu, May 9, 2013 at 12:07 PM

Melony Goodhand, who left as chief financial officer and vice chancellor after nine years at UAMS, is apparently no longer chief operating officer at Bristol (Tenn.) Regional Medical Center, a job she took in early March.

Multiple local sources reported to me she'd left the job. The hospital press spokesman hasn't responded to my questions yet, but the hospital website now lists an interim, Brian Hobson, in the COO position. A hospital operator also said she's no longer at the hospital..

When Goodhand left UAMS late last year, the school agreed to pay her $312,000 this year, to be on call for any questions. That agreement remains in effect, a UAMS spokesman said.

For the record: 1) Goodhand is being paid $312,000; 2) new CFO Bill Bowes, will begin work July 1 at $270,000, and interim CFO David Wilcox, is being paid $158,127. Come July 1, rather than retiring as he'd once planned, he'll go back to his associate vice chancellor job at the same pay.
