BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Melbourne Regional Medical Center has named Dale Armour as its new chief financial officer. Armour comes to Melbourne Regional from Rush Health Systems in Meridian, Miss., where he served for the past seven years in several executive capacities.
Coming to Florida is a homecoming of sorts for Melbourne Regional’s new CFO. “I’ve worked in Florida before and it’s great to be back,” said Armour, whose career path has taken him to hospitals in Destin, Naples and West Palm Beach.
“Melbourne and the Space Coast region have so much to offer, including outstanding quality-of-life factors. I’m excited to be part of the team at Melbourne Regional and with Steward Healthcare. They are committed to enhancing healthcare for the communities they serve, and so am I,” Armour said.
During his 30-year career, Armour has also worked for hospitals in Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia.
Armour earned a bachelor of science degree in 1983 from the University of Montevallo in Montevallo, Ala., with a dual major in psychology and sociology. Three years later, he completed a bachelor of business administration degree with a major in accounting from Samford University in Birmingham, Ala.
“We are excited to welcome Dale to our community and Melbourne Regional Medical Center. Dale brings an incredible amount of experience that fits perfectly with the vision and excellence that Steward Health Care brings to our hospital,” said Ron Gicca, president of Melbourne Regional Medical Center.
“Our hospital is growing and Dale’s vision will only complement that growth.”
Armour has a long list of accomplishments and system-wide performance enhancements to his credit. Recently, he helped develop an in-house reference lab for Rush Health Systems, expanded services and focused on improving patient quality and access.
While at Health Management Associates, Armour received several high honors, including a President’s Award and a CFO of the Year recognition.
“It’s been very satisfying work for me, and I always strive to make the greatest contribution possible,” he said. “I’m looking forward to doing that here.”
