Meet Mark Hoffman, GPHA Financial Services

Mark HoffmanMark Hoffman joined the Reimbursement and Financial Analysis Department in January. Although he’s new to GPHA’s Financial Services in Wichita, Hoffman has provided auditing and accounting services for GPHA hospitals for several years.

Hoffman has more than 35 years’ experience as a Certified Public Accountant. He began his career in January 1978 with Fox and Company, which merged with Grant Thornton in 1985. In 2010, he joined BKD’s Wichita office when Grant Thornton sold its health care practice to BKD.

During his time with these three companies, Hoffman worked with numerous GPHA hospitals in Kansas. As a result, he understands the challenges of working in today’s health care environment, especially in rural areas.

“These challenges include reduced Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements, increasing complexity for compliance in matters, such as HIPAA, electronic health records, third-party billing, and declining populations in certain rural settings,” Hoffman said.

Hoffman received his Bachelor’s degree in Accounting and Business Administration from the University of Kansas. When he’s not at work, he enjoys watching KU sports, working in his yard, running, and spending time with his wife, Sue, and their three grown children, Drew, Nate and Sarah.
