Harold Berfiend has been around the IU Health system since long before it was IU Health. After a stint as a counselor in a behavioral health hospital, he moved into administration and eventually joined Methodist Medical Group in the 1990s. Since then, he’s held several leadership roles with the IU Health system, and was recently promoted to vice president of Strategic Integration for the adult academic health center hospitals in downtown Indianapolis.
He and wife Lisa have four children–a 25-year-old daughter who is a senior at IUPUI, two 21-year-old sons–one a junior at Indiana University, the other working to establish a home remodeling business–and a 15-year-old girl who is a sophomore at Franklin Central High School. Lisa is vice president of Eastern United States client development–healthcare for K-Force. Two canines round out the family: “A miniature Schnauzer and a teacup Yorkie, who weighs four pounds soaking wet but thinks he is a Great Dane.”
Berfiend has a bachelor’s degree in psychology and an MBA from Cameron University.
