“I came to CCMH to take the  Chief Financial Officer’s position because I was excited by the way the hospital is positioning itself for the future by recruiting new physicians into the community for continued growth, and its vision to provide excellent health care that exceeds the customers’ expectations,” Fromme said.

Fromme is a licensed Certified Public Accountant with an excess of 30 plus years of health care experience. Fromme graduated from Indiana University with a BS Degree in Accounting.  After college, he started his long career with medical facilities and programs as a Medicare auditor and progressed through the health care industry from  there.

“I’ve been a chief accountant for a 375 bed hospital in Indiana along with being a CFO for hospitals from 25 beds to over 500 beds,” Fromme explained, “I’ve been a regional finance director for a hospital management company where I was responsible for the financial operations of eight hospitals.”

Fromme has also served as the system controller for a health system with over $1.5 billion of revenue.  Prior to coming to CCMH he spent seven years as the CFO for Fayette County Hospital and long term care in Vandalia, Illinois, a 25 bed critical access hospital.

Fromme, who is originally from Jasper, Indiana, has been living in Mooresville, Indiana with his wife, Jean, while serving as the CFO in Vandalia, Illinois. Fromme and his wife have twin daughters, Katie and Susie, with one granddaughter, Madyson.

“I am excited to be at CCMH and am looking forward to working on the challenges that the hospital and other rural hospitals are facing,” Fromme stated.
