Leah Farina oversees all aspects of the account management/customer experience, including support for U.S., Canada, and HCA (one of MEDITECH’S largest customers). She also leads the Implementation/Service team for Home Care/Hospice, and collaborates with the MEDITECH South Africa team as Executive Sponsor for the Aga Khan University Hospital, which is currently implementing MEDITECH Expanse in Kenya, Pakistan, and Afghanistan.
Leah brings warmth, intellect, and professionalism to her role. She is well known for her understanding of today’s healthcare challenges and enjoys working closely with customers and talking with them about how their EHR technology can support clinician workflows and improve patient care delivery.
Ms. Farina’s interest in healthcare was sparked in college, when she studied healthcare 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.
Away from work, she maintains an active schedule with her husband, Doug, and their two children.
