The Chase County Community Hospital’s new Chief Financial Officer (CFO) is excited about her job and looking forward to becoming involved in the community.

Abby Cyboron, a Doniphan native, moved her family to Imperial last weekend and began work Monday.

As CFO, Cyboron will oversee the management of billing and business revenue, as part of the overall financial aspects of CCCH.

“It really comes down to the money,” she explained. “I will help the various departments meet their financial goals and maintain their budgets.”

She will also help the billing office in the collection of money.

CEO Steve Lewis said Cyboron brings “a positive skills set and process improvement to CCCH. We hope we can use her skills to improve our billing process.”

Cyboron most recently was CFO of Valley Medical Management Services in Kearney. Prior to that she was CFO of Great Plains Radiology, and also worked at Kearney Imaging Center at Good Samaritan Hospital while in college.

Cyboron received a Bachelor of Science degree in business administration with an emphasis in accounting from the University of Nebraska-Kearney (UNK) in 2003.

That’s where she met husband Aaron, who just completed 15 years of employment as a production supervisor for Chief Industries in Kearney.

The couple has three children: Jackson, in second grade; Avery, 5, and Porter, 21 months.

While starting a family, Cyboron completed her Masters in Business Administration degree with an emphasis in accounting from UNK in 2012.

“I love to work with people in their work environment,” Cyboron commented.

She said that while it’s too early to know if any changes need to be made in the CCCH financial system, she will be concentrating on three areas.

A year ago CCCH purchased Cerner, a new software system that sees the patient from admission through final billing.

“The process needs perfecting,” she stated. “I want to make sure we’re utilizing it to its fullest capacity.” Cyboron said it’s been hard for departments to see how to make the program flow through the hospital’s system.

Cyboron loves spreadsheets, because they’re “so black and white. I enjoy Excel spreadsheets because they’re neat and tidy. I like to keep things as simple as possible.”

Utilizing those spreadsheets, Cyboron wants to “give the people what they need to do their jobs.”

And, Cyboron will be working with the budgets in the different departments “to see where they are on their budgets so they can manage their time and money better.”

In her off time, Cyboron enjoys volleyball, working out and running. Aaron, who will be staying home with the children, looks forward to hitting the golf courses this spring.

Cyboron looks forward to becoming part of the community. As far as her job, at CCCH the money is coming in and going out. “I need to make sure we’re making more than we’re spending,” she concluded.

The new CFO replaces Renee Fink, who moved to Dundy County Community Hospital last fall as CFO after 12 years at CCCH.

Lewis said Fink, who lives in Stratton, has a shorter commute by locating in Benkelman.
