OVP Health, formerly Ohio Valley Physicians, has hired veteran Prestera Center for Mental Health Services Chief Financial Officer Sallie Lazaro as director of finance for outpatient services.
Lazaro served as CFO for Prestera Center for Mental Health Services in Huntington for more than 23 years, and as an accountant for about a year and a half. Prior to her employment at Prestera, Lazaro spent more than six years as a staff accountant for the Huntington accounting firm Trainer, Wright and Paterno.
