Speaker: Trish Barnes, Senior Vice President and General Manager at Alliance HealthCare Services

Trish Barnes, is the Senior Vice President and General Manager of a new division of Alliance HealthCare Services, called, “TRx.  Talent. As Prescribed”. After years of being a successful Human Resources leader, Trish and her team took Alliance’s standard corporate HR functions of Recruiting and Healthcare Credentialing and turned them into a profitable revenue generating business in their own right. While Alliance Healthcare’s core business is to provide radiology and oncology partnerships with hospitals, Trish and her team offer Recruiting and Credentialing expertise to hospitals as well – which enables a stronger vendor/customer bond.  Trish has P&L responsibility and oversees all aspects of the new division including strategy, sales, marketing, operations, etc.

Trish has achieved success in multiple industries and disciplines even though she didn’t start college until her 30’s as a single mother. She has worked for such organizations as Yamaha Motors, Pfizer Pharmaceuticals, Ameriquest Mortgage and Black & Decker to name a few.  Her non-traditional background affords her a unique perspective on business as she pushes organizations and leaders think differently. Select honors include the Vision Award by Ameriquest, Woman of Influence award by LA Biz Journal, and HR Superstar award by HRO Today.
