ACM Medical Laboratory, a division of Unity Health System, is pleased to announce the appointment of Gita Ramachandran, CPA as chief financial officer, responsible for providing financial oversight for ACM’s global operations. Ramachandran brings not only considerable experience in financial management to ACM, but also the perspectives of a seasoned executive with experience in strategic planning, process integration and acquisitions management.  

Ramachandran began her finance career in public accounting, and  spent several years with healthcare company Baxter International, where she served in several positions of increasing responsibility in the financial organization, including Controller of Baxter's surgical instruments division. After Baxter, Ramachandran became Vice President of Finance for Ralin Medical Inc., a disease management company addressing the cardiac services market.  She moved to Rochester in 1998 to join Frontier Corporation as Vice President of Corporate Audit, and in 2000, became CFO of America Fiber Systems Inc., a start-up telecommunication company that grew to $50 million before it was sold in 2010.  Ramachandran earned a bachelor of science degree from the University of Madras in India, and a masters degree in business administration from the Ivey School of Business, University of Western Ontario in Canada. 

“I am very impressed with Gita's strong business acumen, her ability to drive results, and her record of working effectively and collaboratively across functional boundaries,” said Angela J. Panzarella, president of ACM Medical Laboratory. “I am confident she will make a terrific addition to our team.”
