Leah Farina oversees all aspects of READY implementations, customer support, and account management/customer experience for all MEDITECH licensed customers, including the U.S., Canada, the Caribbean, and HCA Healthcare, one of North America's largest healthcare providers. She also works alongside MEDITECH International to support MEDITECH's vast worldwide customer base -- ensuring healthcare organizations throughout the UK, Ireland, South Africa, the Middle East, and Australia can deliver coordinated, safe care to patients.
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.
