Dallas, TX (PRWEB) September 7, 2007
The great state of Texas has much to boast about. As well as being the largest state in the country, Texas possesses thriving industry, rich heritage, and loads of southern culture. American Healthcare Solutions is proud to share in Texas tradition with the opening their latest office in Dallas, TX.
Combined, California and Texas are home to about 20% of the nation's hospitals, making the states huge healthcare hot-spots. With presence already established in the Golden State, the creation of a Texas office was the next logical step in expanding the success of the firm. AHS Dallas functions as a full-service satellite, offering southern clients the same great product lines as the firm's Pittsburgh area headquarters.
This new site will be directed by Cheryl A. Odom, an experienced healthcare executive who was hand selected for the position. Cheryl holds Bachelor's degrees in both Business and Education from Texas A&M University and is actively affiliated with a number of groups including the Healthcare Financial Management Association and the Dallas-Fort Worth Business Group on Health. Ms. Odom has an extensive background in key accounts, business development, employee relations, information technology, telecommunications, and finance. Prior to joining the AHS team, she served as the Senior Vice President of VHA Southwest Inc. in Plano, Texas. There she achieved much success in establishing smooth operations with reduced overhead, facilitating quarterly management meetings among hospital executives, and developing business opportunities for member hospitals and affiliated physicians. Her efforts, in total, helped to generate $6 million in revenue. Cheryl's talent, entrepreneurial flare, and solid leadership make her a strong asset to the firm as well as a smart choice in spearheading this new venture. Ms. Odom views her appointment and the opportunity to work with AHS as "both exciting and rewarding."
One of the main focuses of AHS Dallas will be to further grow the firm's relationship with Texas HealthShare Inc., a subsidiary of the Texas Hospital Association. The established partnership positions AHS as an approved vendor for financial, productivity, leadership, and other services to the hundreds of hospital members associated. AHS Dallas will manage the firm's efforts in developing a stronger client base among this group and will serve as the primary contact for all related initiatives.
American Healthcare Solutions is thrilled with the addition of the Dallas office and is looking forward to the business opportunities to be gained through the newly appointed Texas team. Ms. Odom expressed her enthusiasm adding: "American Healthcare Solutions delivers products and services to hospitals that significantly impact their bottom line. We have the talent and products to make a difference."
