IU Health names Kitchell chief financial officer

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Indiana University Health promoted Ryan Kitchell to be its chief financial officer, the Indianapolis-based hospital system announced Tuesday morning.

Kitchell, 38, replaces Marvin Pember, who left in July to take an executive position with Philadelphia-based hospital system Universal Health Services Inc.

It’s the second promotion in three months for Kitchell, 38. In November, he was named president of IU Health Plans after his predecessor Alex Slabosky retired.

Kitchell first joined IU Health in September 2010 as treasurer, overseeing investments, cash management and corporate real estate. Before that, he worked more than five years for Gov. Mitch Daniels, first as public finance director and then as director of the Office of Management and Budget.

Kitchell holds an economics degree from Indiana University and an MBA degree from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth.

Kitchell and his wife Molly have four children. In Feburary, IBJ named Kitchell to its annual "Forty Under 40" list. In the video below, he discusses the learning curve he experienced after joinging IU Health, his stint as director of OMB, and being named Indiana University's homecoming king in 1995.
