Boston MedFlight Announces Hiring of New CEO 6 Feb, 17, Source: Boston MedFlight

The Board of Trustees of Boston MedFlight, a nonprofit organization founded in 1985 which provides critical care medical transport by air and ground, is pleased to announce that they have hired a new Chief Executive Officer. Following an extensive nationwide search that included many highly-qualified candidates, the Board has selected an internal candidate, Maura Hughes, CPA, MBA, to lead the organization.

Ms. Hughes joined Boston MedFlight in 1998, and has served as Chief Financial Officer since 2002. When Boston MedFlight’s former CEO and Medical Director, Dr. Suzanne Wedel, passed away in March 2016 from ovarian cancer, the Board asked Ms. Hughes to serve as Interim CEO, a role she has very capably fulfilled since that time.

Ms. Hughes is a nonprofit executive with over 25 years’ experience in nonprofit and healthcare industries. She is a CPA and graduate of Merrimack College with a BS in Accounting, and also holds an MBA in Finance from Bentley University. She is a nationally recognized expert on critical care transport consortium models and critical care transport billing. She is sought after by other air medical services considering creation of transport consortiums and advice on transport billing and operations.
