I still wanted to be part of hospital ministries.”
Burroughs’ approach to leading in health care finance is one of the skills that made him standout to AdventHealth Hendersonville President and Chief Executive Officer, Brandon Nudd, “Steve values input from the subject matter experts to learn specifics of the various areas of the organization.
