President's Message

I am proud to be the President and CEO of Caring Health Center, one of the premier health centers in the Western Massachusetts area. For over

25 years we have demonstrated the ability to overcome barriers and provide access to exceptional health care, and this has positively changed lives.

Our team is committed to the unwavering dedication to our vision and mission. Our Health Center’s vision is in the name: to provide CARING, quality, integrated, holistic HEALTH care keeping patients at the CENTER while administering the best patient experience. As President/CEO, my personal philosophy is coined in the acronym H.E.L.P., Healing Every Last Person.


Your role in realizing/adopting this vision and being part of Caring Health Center’s team that is committed to providing the highest level of patient care
is deeply valued. I welcome you to Caring Health Center and thank you for assuming this responsibility. Patient-centered family focus is the core of our existence, and therefore patient service is vital. Every person on the team, whether a front office coordinator, clinician, researcher, or administrator, has a critical role to ensure  every patient receives the best care. Through collective effort and support, we strive to create an atmosphere enabling you to achieve your highest level of excellence. With team- based accountable care coordination, we will move from Good to Great – transitioning and transforming.
