KVC Health Systems, a national leader in helping children, adults and families with behavioral healthcare and child welfare services, has appointed Sherri Lohe as Chief Financial Officer (CFO) effective January 1. Lohe has been with KVC for six years, most recently as Executive Vice President of Finance. She has over 20 years of experience in nonprofit accounting. The transition is the first part of a multiphase leadership succession plan to address current CFO and General Counsel Marilyn Jacobson’s retirement later this year.
As CFO, Lohe will be responsible for all financial accounting for parent organization KVC Health Systems and its seven subsidiaries. KVC Health Systems employs over 1,500 professionals at 35 locations in Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Kentucky and West Virginia. Its primary services are in-home family support, foster care, adoption, behavioral healthcare and children’s psychiatric hospitals.

“Sherri has dramatically elevated the quality of our accounting team in her six years at KVC,” said Jason Hooper, President and CEO. “She has a proven track record of excellence and brings the ability to tend to the needs of today while anticipating and preparing for what the future might require in the constantly changing landscapes of behavioral health and child welfare. I am thrilled to welcome her to our Executive Team where she will help strengthen the future for KVC and the communities we serve.”
“It’s a privilege for me to be a financial leader and advocate to our subsidiaries who provide vital child and family services,” said Lohe. “Our subsidiary leaders are experts in mental health and child welfare-related services and I look forward to working closely with them on ensuring financial success of both their current services and future opportunities and partnerships. Since innovation is part of our DNA here at KVC, we are launching new value-based models for delivering healthcare. We help health and human services excel at caring for people with the most complex needs through a proven model that improves their health and their experience of care while reducing costs.”
KVC’s services are supported by a diverse array of funding sources including federal grants, state government contracts and grants, partnerships with primary health and managed care organizations, foundations, businesses and individuals. As KVC prepares to celebrate its 50th anniversary in late 2020, Lohe is working closely with other leaders to support new giving options that enable people to leave a legacy of caring through the organization. This will strengthen KVC for its next 50 years of enriching and enhancing the lives of children and families.
