Antelope Valley Hospital has named Colette Menzel as its new chief financial officer, the hospital announced Wednesday.

She replaces former chief financial officer Paul Brydon, who came out of retirement to serve in the position until a permanent replacement was found.

Menzel comes to the Lancaster hospital as a current member of the Antelope Valley Board of Trade and the Lancaster West Rotary. She is also an emeritus member of the board of directors for the Antelope Valley Boys and Girls Club.

Her most recent position was as vice president of finance for Corra, an e-commerce agency with offices in Los Angeles, New York and London.

“The hospital is on sound financial footing and ready to positively address the many challenges before us – from new program development to new partnerships to new ways to look at how to continue to serve our community for many years to come,” Menzel said in a statement.
