In her request to present Ted with a Culture Coin, Ozmeral noted: “Ted is an exemplary member of the USF Health finance team and has been such a valuable asset to both the Health business office and UMSA. He is one of the “go-to” people in the organization that truly understands the finances of all three mission areas. He also understands the complex contractual relationship we have had with TGH over the past several years. As a result, leadership and staff across the organization often go to him for assistance and he never hesitates to help. Ted wears so many different hats throughout our organization and every time someone mentions they worked with Ted, they comment on how helpful and knowledgeable he is. We would like to recognize him for all of the work he does behind the scenes to keep this organization running.”

For his ability to never hesitate and step in to do whatever he can to help, Ted was recognized as a Culture Champion for USF Health Finance.
