Curt Nonomaque is president and chief executive officer of VHA-UHC Alliance NewCo, Inc., the newly combined entity representing VHA Inc., the national health care network of not-for-profit hospitals, and UHC, the alliance of the nation’s leading academic medical centers. The company is using existing market-facing brands until a new name is announced.
Nonomaque served as president and CEO of VHA Inc. from 2003 to 2015. Prior to that, he was VHA’s executive vice president, chief financial officer and treasurer. Responsible for business operations, he was instrumental in the development of numerous company initiatives that have led to increased value for the membership, including the creation of Novation and its e-commerce capabilities, the ongoing development of VHA's consulting and purchased services units. He also assisted in the formation of HEALTHvision, a health care Internet company that VHA formed with outside partners in the late 1990s.
Nonomaque joined VHA in 1986 as a financial analyst with VHA Enterprises and was named assistant treasurer of the subsidiary company in 1987. In August 1989, he was appointed vice president and treasurer for both VHA and VHA Enterprises. He spent the next two years selling businesses that were connected to VHA Enterprises, helping the company improve its financial position and reduce the losses it absorbed as part of a national managed care venture. During this time, Nonomaque also led efforts to restore VHA's business status as cooperative in order to create a vehicle to deliver additional value to members. VHA converted from a cooperative to a corporation in 2012.
Before joining VHA, Nonomaque served as a banking officer for First City Bank in Dallas. From 1983 to 1985, he was a management consultant with Arthur Andersen & Co.
Nonomaque received a bachelor's degree in biology from Baylor University in Waco, Texas. He also holds a master's degree in business administration from Baylor's Hankamer School of Business.
