Senior Vice President of Operations Denny Bierl and Executive Vice
President Kirk Stanley take on greater roles
BRENTWOOD, Tenn., Sept. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- New contracts and expansion into a new market made the first six months of 2007 the most successful period of growth to date for INSPIRIS, the Brentwood, Tenn.-based health care management company.
The company's continued success and expansion triggered the need for additional executive resources. INSPIRIS announced today two well-deserved executive team promotions: Kirk Stanley is now the company's CFO/executive vice president, and Denny Bierl is senior vice president of operations.
"Both Kirk and Denny are exceptional health care executives, with broad experience over the years with a number of health care companies," said Mike Tudeen, president and chief executive officer of INSPIRIS. "They have both played a fundamental part in the company's growth, and will continue to be key players in INSPIRIS' success."
INSPIRIS is a care and care management company with expertise in improving the quality of life for the frail elderly while reducing the cost to Medicare Advantage and Medicaid health plans. INSPIRIS also owns and operates hospice companies.
Stanley has been with INSPIRIS for nearly five years, serving first as vice president of financial operations and most recently as chief financial officer. Stanley has a long career in health care management, working previously for divisions of Principal Healthcare, American Healthways, Humana and Matria Healthcare. His new duties will include expanded responsibilities in internal operations, including information technology, financial operations and other strategic initiatives.
Bierl has served as regional president of INSPIRIS' largest market, Phoenix, for the past year. Prior to that, the 18-year veteran of health care management worked collaboratively with INSPIRIS for four years in his executive position with Mercy Care Health Plan in Phoenix and as a principal for Pinnacle Healthcare Consulting. In his new role, Bierl will be responsible for operations in all INSPIRIS health plan markets, including New York, Boston, Phoenix, Tennessee and Daytona Beach, FL.
The promotions follow an active first half of 2007, when the company added seven new service line contracts and began operations in the Daytona Beach market. INSPIRIS now meets the care and care management needs of qualifying members on behalf of eleven health plans representing more than 300,000 senior members in six different markets.
INSPIRIS is a unique health care management company focused on improving the quality of life for the frail elderly, chronically ill and those with disabilities, while reducing the cost to Medicare Advantage health plans. INSPIRIS partners with individual health plans to coordinate and provide care across the diverse settings where members need care, including post-acute, custodial, assisted living and hospice.
