Tarrytown, NY (PRWEB) July 30, 2014
Building ENT and Allergy Associates (ENTA) into the premier ear, nose, throat, allergy, and audiology practice in Westchester County takes the best of everything. Leading physicians, the finest locations, state-of-the-art technology, a superb underlying corporate structure and protocols, and a staff that is second to none.
It also takes a leading Chief Financial Officer to help run it. According to the Westchester County Business Journal (WCBJ), that’s exactly what it possesses. In fact, in the WCBJ’s July 21st, 2014 issue, it lists Arthur Schwacke among the best and the brightest CFO’s in the entire county.
Art Schwacke has served ENTA—with 7 of its 41 clinical sites and 32 of its 160 expertly trained physicians located in Westchester—since 1998. During that tenure, he has helped build it from its relatively humble beginnings into a medical powerhouse, where over 60,000 patients receive the finest medical care possible each and every month.
His financial acumen and negotiating skills have helped produce solid results for the Practice and—in combination with Chief Executive Officer Robert Glazer, Chief Operating Officer Nicole Monti, and the remainder of the Senior Leadership team at ENTA—continue to shepherd unprecedented growth.
“I couldn’t be prouder of Arthur”, noted CEO Bob Glazer, “but frankly it does not take a publication’s accolades to convince me that Art is among the best there is. We have worked side by side for the entirety of his 16 years at ENTA, and I have watched him sparkle day in and day out”.
Added President (and former Finance Committee Chair) Robert Green, MD, “Our Practice simply would not have achieved the results we have without Art at our financial helm. Not even close. I join many others, inside and outside the Practice, in congratulating him on his latest recognition”.
Art Schwacke, who handles both day-to-day and long term financial responsibilities, came to ENTA from Healix Healthcare, where he served as Vice President of Finance and Chief Financial Officer. He was at that privately held home healthcare firm from December 1995 through September 1998 and, among other things, obtained over $4.0 million in financing for this startup company and engineered the merger of the Company into Accuhealth, Inc.; a publicly traded home health concern in April 1998.
Mr. Schwacke began in healthcare in 1989 with Continental Health Affiliates, Inc., and served as Controller for the publicly traded home healthcare and nursing home management company. His career commenced in 1978 with the accounting firm of Wiss and Company and he held senior level accounting positions in broadcasting and cable television, construction, and consumer products industries before entering the healthcare field. He is a graduate of Rutgers University and a Certified Public Accountant with memberships in the AICPA, New Jersey Society of CPAs, the MGMA, AOA, and the AOA Executive Large Group Forum.
