Prior to moving to Delaware with his wife and three children, Mr. Winkfield served as the Director of Patient Access/Revenue Cycle Operation at Baylor Scott & White Healthcare in College Station, Texas.

He is a graduate of Temple University and a member of the National Association of Healthcare Access Management Associates.

“I am excited to be back on the East Coast where I am closer to my family in the Philadelphia area,” Winkfield said. “I had vacationed in the Lewes area in the past and look forward to raising my family here.”

Mr. Winkfield reports to Paul J. Pernice, CPA, Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.

We are extremely excited to have Maurice here leading our Patient Access areas,” Pernice said. “He stood head and shoulders above all the other candidates for his technical and leadership skills. But more importantly, he stood out in exhibiting Beebe’s values.”
