Leadership Transitions Underway

Author: Amanda Tekely/Friday, June 07, 2019/Categories: Member News

Hilda Shirk, president & CEO of Lancaster Health Center (LCH)  and a member of the PACHC board of directors, celebrated the end of a successful seven years at the helm of the health center in a retirement party Thursday evening. Under Dr. Shirk's leadership, the health center's budget doubled; staff grew from 130 at three sites to 200 at five sites; and access grew from 56 medical and dental exam rooms to 79 medical, dental and behavioral health exam rooms. Alisa Jones has been named LCH's new president & CEO. Alisa, also a member of the PACHC board of directors, most recently served seven years as president & CEO of Kennett Square-based La Comunidad Hispana (LCH) . A search is underway for her successor there and interested candidates should review the position posted on the LCH website.
