CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – UNC Health has named William Bryant as the system’s new chief financial officer.

The new executive role marks a return for Bryant, who previously held various financial leadership roles at UNC Health. Bryant will start in his new position on May 1.

“We are very excited to welcome Will Bryant back to the UNC Health family,” said UNC Health CEO, Dr. Wesley Burks. “He has a strong financial acumen and a proven track record with us. Will is also highly regarded as an outstanding leader with a passion for our mission for the health and well-being of all North Carolinians.”

As CFO for UNC Health, Bryant will be responsible for ensuring the financial health of the organization. He will provide financial leadership and oversight to UNC Health’s 15 hospitals, 19 campuses, and 900 clinics across North Carolina, and will lead the organization’s operational finance, financial planning, revenue cycle management, accounting, treasury, government reimbursement, and payor relations functions.

“I’m incredibly excited and grateful for the opportunity to serve as UNC Health’s CFO,” Bryant said. “As a native of eastern North Carolina, UNC Health’s mission to improve the health of all North Carolinians has deep meaning to me. To be able to rejoin the health system in this capacity to help lead and financially enable the achievement of that mission is pretty special.”

Bryant first joined UNC Health in 2016 when he was named CFO of UNC High Point Regional Health. During his previous tenure, Bryant assumed increasingly more senior roles within UNC Health including System VP of Supply Chain, CFO of UNC Health Shared Services, and CFO of UNC Hospitals.

In 2022, Bryant was named CFO of Qualderm Partners in Brentwood, Tenn., a major dermatology provider operating dermatology practices across 17 states from Pennsylvania to Arizona. Since December, Bryant served as Chief Administrative Officer for Qualderm.

Bryant earned a Business Management degree from N.C. State University, and is scheduled to finish his MBA at UNC-Chapel Hill in the Fall. Bryant and his wife, Allyson, live in Raleigh with their five boys and two chocolate labs, Harker and Duck. When Bryant’s not working or running from soccer practice to golf matches to football games with his boys, he enjoys fishing on the North Carolina coast.
