The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) has recently promoted two of its financial officers.
Amanda George, CPA, has been appointed chief financial officer and vice chancellor for finance at UAMS. In her previous position, George was the associate vice chancellor for clinical finance and chief financial officer of the integrated clinical enterprise.
Jake Stover has been appointed to serve as chief administrative officer and associate vice chancellor for clinical finance with the integrated clinical enterprise. He previously served as associate dean for finance and chief financial officer of the College of Medicine.
Both individuals have Masters of Health Services Administration and have been jointly serving as the interim vice chancellor for finance and CFO, in addition to their primary duties, following Bill Bowes’ retirement as senior vice chancellor for finance and administration in December 2018.
“I believe these changes will better position UAMS for the future and support our efforts to serve our patients, students and all 3 million residents of the state of Arkansas,” says UAMS Chancellor Cam Patterson, M.D., MBA.
Prior to joining UAMS, George served as controller for Little Rock’s Catholic Health Initiatives’ East/Southeast division’s ambulatory services, and the assistant controller for St. Vincent Health System hospitals in North Little Rock and Morrilton. Joining UAMS in 2013, George became administrator for the Department of Internal Medicine, and in 2015, was appointed administrator for the Medical Specialties services line.
Stover joined the College of Medicine in August 2018, coming from the CARTI Cancer Center, where he served as executive vice president of financial affairs and CFO. He previously held multiple finance roles at UAMS, including director of treasury, assistant vice chancellor for finance, associate vice chancellor for finance, and treasurer.
