Vice President of Client Services
Leah Farina brings warmth, intellect, and professionalism to her role as vice president of Client Services, overseeing 6.x implementations as well as targeted support for HCA (one of MEDITECH’s largest customers). Ms. Farina also played a key part in establishing the company’s thriving and successful physician liaison program, headed by Dr. Steven Jones.
Ms. Farina’s interest in healthcare was sparked in college, when she studied health care management and policy at the University of New Hampshire. During that time, she also worked in the Registration and Emergency Departments at Melrose Wakefield Hospital, a MEDITECH customer. After witnessing how vital IT was to the process of getting patients promptly admitted and treated, she made the leap to working as an implementation specialist for MEDITECH in 1989.
Ms. Farina is well known for her empathy and understanding of today’s healthcare challenges. She enjoys travelling to visit customers and talking with them about how EHR technology can support clinician workflows and improve patient care delivery.
Away from work, she maintains an active schedule with her husband, Doug, and their two children.
