Tom Scott is the Chief Financial Officer of HSTpathways. Scott joined HSTpathways as CFO in 2014. He has played a key role in overseeing HSTpathways’ year-over-year, double-digit growth over the past four years. HSTpathways’ software solutions are now used in more than 700 ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) across the United States. Because of Tom’s leadership, the company now has most of the country’s leading ASCs as clients. In addition, he has helped to double HST’s employee workforce.
As with the other members of the HSTpathways’ leadership team, Scott’s broad experience in the industry helps to align HSTpathways’ solutions with the unique needs of the ASC industry. Scott brings more than 25 years of experience in the outpatient surgery center industry to his role as CFO. Prior to joining HSTpathways, he was Vice President of Development and Operations at Surgical Management Professionals, where he oversaw strategic development and operations for surgery centers.
Before that, Scott served dual financial and operational roles as a founding partner of Ascent Surgical Partners, an outpatient surgery center development and management company. At ASP he oversaw budgeting, financial planning and analysis and forecasting for new acquisitions and new business lines.

As CFO, Scott also provides oversight for HSTpathways’ sales team. He works with the team to ensure that though the relationship between HSTpathways and a potential customer may begin with the sales effort, it doesn’t end there. Ongoing customer support and satisfaction is a key pillar of HSTpathways’ customer commitment. As CFO, Scott is equally as dedicated to supporting continuing customer satisfaction as he is to facilitating HSTpathways’ overall financial growth, development and stability.
