Donna Garcia


After spending six years as the Vice President of Finance for Donna Garciathe Presbyterian Delivery System for Presbyterian Healthcare Services, a private, not-for-profit healthcare system and New Mexico’s largest provider of care, Donna decided to slow down and enjoy life.  As a result, she has stepped down from that position but because of her passion for improving the health of New Mexicans and for Presbyterian, she continues to serve Presbyterian Healthcare Services part-time as a financial consultant. Donna joined Presbyterian in 1989 as the Director of Underwriting for Presbyterian Health Plan.  Since that time, she has served in a variety of leadership roles throughout Presbyterian Healthcare Services.  Within the Presbyterian Delivery System she has served as the Vice President of Finance, Director of Network Contracting, Director of Strategic Planning and Director of Finance for Presbyterian Medical Group.  Within the Presbyterian Health Plan she has served as Director of Underwriting, Director of Provider Services and Director of Decision Support and Data Warehousing.  This diverse background provides her with a unique ability to understand the intricacies of the healthcare system which will aid Presbyterian Healthcare Services in charting and navigating the organization through the affects of healthcare reform.

Prior to joining Presbyterian Healthcare Services, Donna worked for five years as an auditor with KPMG, a national CPA firm in New Mexico.  She earned her Certified Public Accountancy certificate in 1985 and her BBA with a concentration in accounting in 1984 from The University of New Mexico.

Donna has served as the treasurer on several community boards including the NM Multiple Sclerosis Society, ARC of New Mexico and Community Faith Links.  She has also served as a member of The Reference Lab and Hospital Services Corporation.

Other than healthcare, Donna’s passions and outside interests include her children, faith and music.  She has combined these passions by leading the children’s music program at her church at various times and serves as a worship team leader.  She also enjoys being outdoors and participating in recreational sports.
