Roxane Stewart joined Magnolia Regional Medical Center in March of 2016 as the Chief Financial Officer. She is a senior-level accounting professional and financial management executive with more than 30 years of experience in finance, healthcare, and operations. She obtained her Certified Public Accountant license in 1993 and has practiced in both public and private sectors including over 19 years in the healthcare industry.
A native of Magnolia, Roxane completed her BBA in Accounting in 1985 at Southern Arkansas University where she now serves on the SAU Alumni Board of Directors. In her early years, she worked in Magnolia at Murphy’s Jewelers, South Ark Planning & Development, and Edstrom CPA Firm. After graduation, she moved to Little Rock to work in public accounting doing both audit and tax work, and eventually worked at AR Children’s Hospital for 14 years where she began her career in healthcare while raising her twins, Parker and Jordan.
Prior to returning back home to Magnolia, she completed licensing and registration as a Certified Financial Manager and Register Representative Stockbroker. She was also instrumental in the growth and development of a private property management company where she managed the accounting for lease-up and stabilization of over 55 apartment communities within ten years.
Roxane has a heart for Magnolia and was excited about the opportunity to return “home” in 2016. She is passionate about ensuring the financial stability of our hospital so we can continue to provide excellent healthcare for our community for years to come.
In her spare time, you might find her walking the SAU farm road with her little dog, Emma Grace, spending time with family and friends, or simply enjoying being outdoors doing anything from hiking, biking, and kayaking to enjoying an outdoor fire under the stars.
