ALBANY, GA – Draffin & Tucker, LLP is pleased to welcome Rebecca McKinley, CPA, as a new partner to the firm, effective January 1, 2020.

Rebecca joined Draffin Tucker in 2004 as a staff accountant after graduating from Troy University with a Master of Business Administration. She has made numerous contributions to the firm, our healthcare clients, and the local community. In addition to her contributions to our clients, she also serves the firm as chairman of the Accounting & Auditing Committee and assists in the administration of the scheduling process. Beyond her firm responsibilities, she serves the Albany community as a board member and Finance Council Chair with the Junior League of Albany, GA, Inc.

“I love working for Draffin Tucker and serving our clients in the healthcare industry. I truly believe you will not find a better firm for workplace experience,” says McKinley. “Draffin Tucker has a tradition of committing to the success of its people and clients; and I want to continue to honor that as I take on this new role in our firm. I am thankful for this opportunity and look forward to contributing to the firm’s continued success.”

As evidence of her initiative and leadership, Rebecca identified an opportunity to enhance Blue Cross reimbursement for several Alabama hospitals. In conjunction with firm leadership, she developed and implemented a plan to target and communicate the opportunity to these hospitals. This initiative  resulted in a cumulative reimbursement benefit exceeding $9 million for 18 hospitals.

Draffin Tucker clients take note of her commitment to the success of their  organizations. “Rebecca has done extremely valuable work on four of our hospitals and found significant reimbursements for each of them,” said Monica Jordan of Infirmary Health System. “Rebecca is very personable and committed to making sure her clients are pleased with the work product. In my 25 years in reimbursement, she is the best consultant I’ve worked with.”

“We are excited about Rebecca’s expanded role in our firm and also about the opportunities this will bring to our firm and to our clients,” said Jeff Wright, managing partner.
