We are pleased to announce that Kyle Wescoat has joined our team as Chief Financial Officer. He replaces Rick Flaherty, who is retiring.
Kyle comes to The Meadows with more than 25 years of CFO experience in a variety of well-regarded public and private companies including Emulex, VIZIO and Vans. He also has previous experience in the field of behavioral health as the former Executive Vice President and CFO of Aspen Education Group. He received his undergraduate degree from Drexel University and MBA in Finance from the University of Michigan.
“Kyle has proven himself to be a tremendous CFO and organizational leader in a variety of settings. He brings with him a remarkable set of skills and experiences that I believe will benefit The Meadows as we continue to grow and evolve in the rapidly changing behavioral health environment” says Meadows Behavioral Health CEO Jim Dredge. “I look forward to working with Kyle as we explore and execute on new ways of providing high quality services to our patients while remaining sensitive to the increasing demands for thoughtful, efficient delivery and outcomes.”
Kyle is also active in his community. He has maintained a long time involvement with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Orange County, California, and Hoag Hospital Presbyterian. He serves as Chairman of Hoag Irvine’s Executive Advisory Board, and on the President’s Advisory Council at Drexel University.
“I want to thank Jim and the board for giving me this opportunity to join The Meadows at this exciting time in its history,” Kyle says. “For more than 25 years, The Meadows and Remuda Ranch have been synonymous with the highest level of patient care and innovation. It is our goal to continue to lead the industry in not only the services provided, but how they are provided, as well.”
Dredge added, “I want to thank Rick Flaherty for his hard work and contribution to Meadows Behavioral Healthcare. I wish him the very best.”
