Keith Tickell has been named senior vice president and chief financial officer of the healthcare system.
Baptist Health of Northeast Florida, a Florida-based member of the Coastal Community Health Network, has appointed Keith Tickell as senior vice president and chief financial officer, effective immediately.
Tickell joined Baptist Health in 2015 where he served as senior vice president of strategic assets and real estate. He assumed the role of interim chief financial officer at Baptist Health earlier this year replacing former chief financial officer Scott Wooten, who decided to step down after serving in the role since 2014.
“Keith Tickell brings to the CFO role a strong skill set and unique perspective that encompasses finance, strategic assets and operations,” said Michael Mayo, DHA, FACHE, President and CEO of Baptist Health, in a press release.
Tickell has served as CFO at various companies, including Flagler Development, a commercial real estate company, and North Highland Company, a business advisory firm. He also served as vice president and chief financial officer of Sabal Corporation, owner, developer and manager of a mixed-use commercial development park in Tampa, and Nordic Refrigeration Services in Atlanta.
As chief financial officer of Baptist Health of Northeast Florida, Tickell will be responsible for shaping the organization’s financial strategies and future growth throughout the region. He will lead the company’s efforts in financial planning, reporting, tax and treasury, as well as real estate, design and construction.
“His diverse background includes working in private equity, publicly traded and private organizations,” Mayo said. “Above all, Keith is perfectly aligned with the mission and values of Baptist Health. I am proud to have him as a trusted member of our leadership team.”
