Danville, Va., Oct. 12, 2011 -- Danville Regional Medical Center (DRMC) announced today the appointment of Dennis Joseph Eith as Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Eith has nearly 30 years hospital leadership experience and will assume his new role effective Nov. 1.
Most recently Eith served as Chief Financial Officer of Caroli- nas Hospital System, a 420-bed (two-campus) facility located in Florence, S.C. While at Carolinas, Eith was responsible for all financial areas of the organization, as well as health information management, case management, information systems, materials management and managed care. During his tenure at Carolinas, Eith worked to increase patient satisfaction by stream-lining the patient registration process and by working to enhance financial resources for patients.
The trapeze was a hit at the Imagine Festival this past Saturday! All ages joined in the fun swinging high above the crowd. Pictured is Angie Carlsen, an 8th grade Math teacher at Dan River Middle School. Go Angie!!
“We are very fortunate to have Dennis join the DRMC team,” said Eric Deaton, DRMC Chief Executive

Eith earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Commerce (Accounting) from the University of Louisville (KY) and is a member of the Healthcare Financial Management Associa- tion (HFMA). He is a very active community leader having served on various boards and has held membership in several organizations.
“My family and I are excited about becoming members of the community,” Eith said. “I am looking forward to working with the entire DRMC team – the associates, physicians, volun- teers and community leaders – in making the best technol- ogy and services available to citizens of the region.”
advertisers for supporting the Piedmont Shopper!
Thank you readers and
Classified Updated Online Daily at 10•2•4 Be The First To Find A Deal This Week!
Piedmont Shopper would like to encourage each of our readers to participate in two worthy causes with our friends at URW Community Federal Credit Union.
URW is collecting clean, gently used coats to be donated to those in need in our community for the winter. Unfortunately there are children and
teens that are standing at the school bus stop without a coat to keep them warm. Please take a minute to go through your closet and bring the coats you and your children no longer wear to one of the branch locations of URW Community FCU on Arnett Blvd or Mt. Cross Road. Together we can make a difference, one child at a time!
URW is also participating in Operation Backpack, which is a group of teachers who discretely place food items in the backpacks of needy children. You can help by donating food items that children can prepare themselves such as pop tarts, nabs, ramen noodles, etc. These items can be brought to any URW location as well. If you are a teacher who would like to participate please contact URW at 793-1278. No child should have to go hungry!
Eith and his wife Kim will move to Danville with their two sons, Cole (age 9) and Austin (age 13). Eith also has three adult children: Lauren, Ashley and Brad.
