Parallon names CFO

Veteran TriStar exec moving over to back-office division

Parallon Business Solutions has named Chris Taylor its chief financial officer. Taylor will report directly to CEO Michael O’Boyle.

Since 2005, Taylor had been CFO at TriStar Health, the regional hospital and outpatient network owned by HCA Holdings, which set up Parallon last year.

“Chris is an accomplished and experienced financial executive who has spent his entire career serving in a variety of management capacities within the healthcare industry,” O’Boyle said in a company statement. “Taylor’s industry knowledge and financial management acumen will enhance Parallon’s bottom line.”

Taylor's promotion to Parallon is the latest in a series of executive moves at the company, which handles back-office and technology tasks both for HCA and external clients, including Brentwood-based LifePoint Hospitals.
