MAYWOOD, IL – John B. Hart, a healthcare compliance expert, has joined Loyola Medicine as vice president and chief integrity officer.
“My goal is to balance the mission of providing excellent patient care in an ethical manner consistent with Loyola and Trinity Health’s Catholic heritage,” Hart said. “While the regulatory environment in healthcare is overwhelming, I am confident that working together we can meet the challenges to serve our patients well.”
Hart will oversee all auditing and compliance functions for Loyola University Health System, a quaternary care system with a 61-acre main medical center campus in Maywood, the 36-acre Gottlieb Memorial Hospital campus and a large network of primary and specialty care facilities in Cook, Will and DuPage counties.
Hart comes to Loyola from Oregon Health & Science University, the only academic medical center in that state, where he served as clinical enterprise integrity officer. Prior to Oregon Health, Hart was responsible for the internal audit, compliance, privacy and security functions of the UNC Health Care system (at the University of North Carolina Health). He has also worked in this field at North Carolina Baptist Hospital, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina and for private accounting firms.
Hart, of Oak Park, earned a master’s in public health from the University of North Carolina and is currently licensed as a CPA in Oregon. He is active in the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the Heath Care Compliance Association and the Healthcare Financial Management Association.
