Last month, TriStar Centennial Medical Center welcomed Tom Jackson as the hospital's new chief financial officer. With oversight of financial operations for the 741-bed hospital, Jackson comes to TriStar Centennial from HCA Healthcare's Parkridge Health System in Chattanooga where he served as market CFO for six years.
He has nearly 20 years of financial management experience and started his career as a senior auditor for Ernst & Young LLP. Jackson first joined HCA Healthcare more than 14 years ago as the associate controller at Research Medical Center in Kansas City, Mo. He held increasing financial roles for the hospital company with positions in Georgia prior to moving to Tennessee. Jackson holds an MBA from Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management and a bachelor's degree from David Lipscomb University. He is a certified public accountant licensed in Tennessee.
