EvergreenHealth’s Board of Commissioners formally appointed Tim McLaughlin as its newest board member on Nov. 15. The board selected McLaughlin to fill the seat that represents the Redmond/Sammamish area. The position was held formerly by Auggie Kempf, who announced his retirement in September.

“Tim has an impressive business and financial background, combined with decades of experience as a trusted community leader,” said EvergreenHealth CEO Bob Malte. “His experience managing the financial, procedural and business functions for national organizations will be a tremendous asset to our organization as we continue to expand our services and offer exceptional care to the communities we serve.”

McLaughlin is an experienced financial executive currently serving as chief financial officer of SightLife, a global health organization with a mission to eliminate corneal blindness, and its subsidiary, SightLife Surgical. During the last decade at SightLife, McLaughlin oversaw a $50 million operating budget and is responsible for accounting, treasury, financial reporting, facilities, information technology and purchasing functions.

He brings more than 35 years of financial experience across multiple industries, and his former positions include: CFO of Eddie Bauer; vice president and controller for AT&T Wireless Services; and CFO of National Cash Register Corporation’s microelectronics division.

McLaughlin holds a Bachelor of Science in business administration from Wake Forest University, Master of Business Administration in finance from Northwest Missouri State University and a certificate in financial planning from Seattle University. He previously served as board director and treasurer of the Greater Redmond Chamber of Commerce for four years, and currently volunteers for the Wake Forest Alumni Admissions program. McLaughlin’s professional accolades and honors include being named “CFO of the Year” in 2012 by the Puget Sound Business Journal.

He joins six other board members – Al DeYoung, board chair; Jeanette Greenfield, secretary; Minerva Butler, Rebecca Hirt, Charles Pilcher, M.D., and Virgil Snyder. Together the group collaborates and provides oversight, counsel and accountability to EvergreenHealth’s leadership team, helping fulfill the health system’s mission, vision and purpose.

The appointment of McLaughlin completes the seven-member Board of Commissioners, which was expanded from five members by approval of King County voters in August. The health system currently serves a district population of nearly 300,000 residents and a total service area of nearly one million residents.
