GENESEE COUNTY — Nancy Haywood has been named Chief Financial Officer (CFO) for Genesys Health System. Reporting directly to Betsy Aderholdt, president and CEO of Genesys, Haywood will lead the system’s financial operations, including Accounting, Accounts Payable, Health Information Management, Payroll, Real Estate, Patient Registration, Revenue Cycle, and Financial & Strategic Planning.

A certified public accountant, Haywood has worked in finance at Genesys for the past 21 years, most recently as director of Financial & Strategic Planning.
