City of Hope
Jennifer Parkhurst is the chief financial officer at City of Hope, one of the world’s foremost cancer treatment hospitals and academic research institutions, where she is responsible for the financial strategy, long-term investment portfolio, treasury, debt portfolio, capital planning, financial planning and analysis, accounting and financial operations, and revenue cycle operations for the enterprise.
An accomplished, mission-driven and strategic health care executive, Parkhurst has over 30 years of experience across the health care ecosystem. Her sound financial stewardship has helped the organization not only weather the COVID-19 crisis, but thrive in order to benefit patients. While other health care organizations saw an (expected) dip in revenue during the coronavirus pandemic, City of Hope remained on track. During her time as CFO, City of Hope grew total clinical, research and contribution revenues by 25%, and increased total cash and assets by over 30%.
