Executive Staff

 

The success of Carolina Family Health Centers rests, in part, with its tenured and cohesive leadership team.  Each member of the team is properly credentialed and highly qualified to direct programs, functions, and oversee services in his or her primary area of responsibility.  For more than two decades, the Executive Staff has capitalized on opportunities to grow the organization. The Executive Staff and Board of Directors continually monitors the healthcare landscape for opportunities to provide a scope of services that meets the needs of the community.


The Executive Staff consists of seven individuals; the Chief Executive Officer, Chief Operating Officer, Chief Compliance and Quality Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Chief Medical Officer, Chief Dental Officer, and the Chief Pharmacy Officer.
