CFO Services Firm Specializing In Healthcare And Energy

The Healthcare CFO and The Energy CFO About Us Our Story Energy and Healthcare.jpg

The Healthcare CFO is a subsidiary of The Energy CFO®. The Energy CFO is a CFO Services Firm established in 2013 to help businesses accelerate their growth and take them to the next level by providing access to experienced CFO (Chief Financial Officer) leadership that is not typically available to early and middle-market companies and their investors. Basically, our CFO/Owner wanted to level the playing field for private business owners against corporate giants and open the insider doors for much needed industry disrupters.  Very quickly, she also realized there was a need for the firm to expand its SHARED CFO Services to include Interim, Fractional a.k.a. Part-Time, Interim CFO, and finally Virtual CFO Services (2017) that essentially wrap a company’s accounting providers.  

In 2015, The Energy CFO® began diversifying into life sciences, biotechnology, and manufacturing-related industries.  Since then, we have worked for executives running regenerative medicine, tissue distribution, stem cell manufacturing, distribute medical devices, chemicals, and family physician practices. Today we have a mix of clients - small and large. What we enjoy most is learning about new industries. 

 

As in all journeys, new paths lead to new opportunities.  In the summer of 2019, The Energy CFO launched The Healthcare CFO division. It incorporates a carve out of the life sciences and healthcare work from The Energy CFO along with a one-of-a-kind Physician CFO Service we developed at the request of healthcare experts to help address large industry gaps in the financial management of independent physician practices (specifically family physician practices with annual revenues of $2MM to $15MM).

We Help Companies Accelerate Their Growth

We add value to our client's businesses by helping them accelerate their growth and moving them to the next level. 

"Our formula for success is pretty simple.  Treat others the way you want to be treated - with respect, candor, and integrity.  Listen intently.  Be curious and open to new perspectives.  Gain an understanding of other people's perspectives and always be fair.  Communicate frequently.  Work really hard, offer actionable insights, and deliver more value than the client expects."

In doing so, we accomplish The Healthcare CFO's Company Mission.
