Andy Garlington

Centerstone, a not-for-profit health system specializing in mental health and substance use disorder services, has selected Andy Garlington as the new chief financial officer, effective December 20, 2021.

As the chief financial officer, Garlington will manage Centerstone’s revenues of more than $295 million, and lead a finance team of 225 professionals, including those working in financial planning and analysis, accounts payable, accounts receivable, procurement, and payroll. Garlington will also work alongside Centerstone’s chief information officer to have oversight of the organizaton’s robust information technology department.

Prior to joining Centerstone, Garlington served as Hospital Chief Financial Officer for Tenet Healthcare’s St. Joseph Hospital in Tucson, Arizona. There he was responsible for the hospital’s accounting, finance, information technology, health information management, clinical documentation improvement and case management departments.  He was successful in driving one of the largest turnarounds in the Tenet portfolio by driving growth in net revenue and improving margins through expense management. Andy has also previously worked in financial leadership roles at Nashville-based Envision Healthcare, Brentwood-based RCCH Healthcare Partners, and Franklin-based Community Health Systems.

“I am grateful to be returning to Middle Tennessee and becoming part of the Centerstone family,” said Garlington. “I look forward to being part of the tremendous growth the behavioral health industry has seen in recent years, and helping Centerstone be a part of that growth while also helping the organizaton continue on its mission of delivering care that changes people’s lives.”

Garlington holds a master’s degree in business administration from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, and dual bachelor’s degrees in accounting and finance from Auburn University. He is a member of the American College of Healthcare Executives and is Six Sigma Certified.

Garlington succeeds Steve Holman who is retiring after serving as Centerstone’s chief financial officer since 2013.
