Success Stories

Katie Davison – Chief Human Resources Officer, Mon Health
Keeping Employees Healthy and Safe during COVID-19

As Mon Health prepared for the global pandemic in March 2020, the organization welcomed Katie Davison as its new Chief Human Resources Officer. Thrown into unprecedented circumstances, Davison has proven agile as she implemented practices and policies that changed – sometimes daily – in accordance with guidelines from health agencies and government officials. A company-wide Telework Practice and travel reporting system were among her first initiatives to create and maintain a safe and healthy work environment for Mon Health employees.

Anita Chou – Chief Financial Officer, PIH Health
New CFO and PIH Health share mutual pursuit of quality, consistency

In May 2019, PIH Health partnered with WittKieffer to identify a new Chief Financial Officer for the Whitter, California-based multi-site integrated health care system. In addition to strong healthcare financial leadership, the new CFO would collaborate with the CEO to target opportunities for future growth and development. After five months, the search committee recommended Anita Chou, MHA as its top choice. Anita’s experience of nearly 20 years as an executive in the southern California healthcare market will allow her to support PIH’s plans to increase its presence in the region, while maintaining a strong bottom line.
