SARANAC LAKE – Adirondack Health has named Bill Chapin as its chief financial officer.
Chapin will take on the role of CFO on Monday, Feb. 12.
During his nearly 40-year career in finance, Chapin has served as CFO of several North Country organizations, including Mercy Uihlein Health Corporation, North Country Community College, and most recently, Trudeau Institute, Inc.
“I’ve been very fortunate to have these many opportunities in the Tri-Lakes. It’s quite unique,” he said. “I have a diverse background and I think I can bring a different perspective to Adirondack Health while also utilizing my experience in healthcare and non-profits.”
Chapin was born and raised in Saranac Lake. He earned a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and Law from Clarkson University and a Master of Business Administration from Sage Graduate School. After college, he relocated to Boston for five years, but said he jumped on the opportunity to move back to Saranac Lake when the opportunity presented itself.
He and his wife Amy now live close to Adirondack Medical Center, where he said their two children, Jay and Julia, were born. Julia, who is now a medical student at SUNY Upstate, got her start in healthcare in the New Vision program at AMC.
“Being from the area, I’m very familiar with Adirondack Health, its mission, and its people,” he said. “During COVID-19, Trudeau and Adirondack Health joined forces and I worked directly with Adirondack Health clinical staff, providers, and administrators to combat its impact on our community. Being a part of those efforts and now having the opportunity to join Adirondack Health, I enthusiastically embrace my role to partner with this terrific team to continue the commitment of health and care to our communities.”
