BUCKHANNON — After 20 years of dedicated service to Community Care of West Virginia (CCWV), Chief Financial Officer Connie Johnston is retiring.

Johnston held many roles since she joined CCWV in May 2002. She oversaw a variety of efforts during her tenure including operations, institutional research and she was the project manager for CCWV’s Electronic Health Record conversion. She also served as chairwoman for the CCWV Board of Director’s Finance Committee.

“We are thankful to have had Connie’s expertise and experience on our leadership team as we grew from a single location in Rock Cave to the health care organization that we are today,” stated Rick Simon, chief executive officer of Community Care of West Virginia.

In addition to her many positions at CCWV, Johnston has served as the finance committee co-chair of the West Virginia Primary Care Network, Inc., and sat on the Rural Health Education Partnership’s Finance Committee.  She is a previous member of the Northern Rural Health Education Center, Inc.’s Board of Directors and coordinator for the West Virginia Senior Olympics.
