Norma Zeringue serves as Senior Vice President (SVP) of Strategy for Conifer Health Solutions. In this role, Zeringue is responsible for driving Conifer Health’s business transformation strategy through the development and implementation of innovative, high-impact projects, as well as assisting with the growth strategy through acquisitions and strategic partnerships.

In 2014, Zeringue was actively involved in Conifer Health’s acquisition of Tinley Park, Illinois-based SPi Healthcare. She subsequently led the integration of SPi’s operations to create Conifer Health’s Physician Services (PS) business unit. The addition of the VBC and PS business units and the associated services helped secure Conifer Health’s place as a leading provider healthcare services to some of the largest hospitals and health systems in the nation.
