Dr. Rhonda Medows was formally installed as chair of the CHA board of trustees June 15 in a ceremony at the association's annual meeting. A few days earlier, the Membership Assembly officially elected Medows and three new board members. Both meetings were held virtually.
Medows is president of population health management for Providence St. Joseph Health and chief executive of its subsidiary Ayin Health Solutions, a population health management company.
Laura S. Kaiser, president and chief executive of SSM Health, was elected vice chair and chairperson-elect. Julie Manas, president of the Ascension St. Vincent North Region and the immediate past chair of the CHA board, will be speaker of the Membership Assembly during 2021-2022.
The new trustees are:
- Sr. Patricia Codey, SC, president, Catholic Healthcare Partnership of New Jersey.
- Shelly L. Schlenker, executive vice president and chief advocacy officer,
- Fahad Tahir, chief strategy officer, Ascension Saint Thomas Health.
CHA members reelected two trustees: Fr. Joseph P. Cardone, chief mission officer at Bon Secours Mercy Health, and Orest Holubec, executive vice president and chief communications officer at Providence St. Joseph Health. All of the trustees serve three-year terms.
The terms of two board members ended. They are Kevin Sexton, the retired president and chief executive of Holy Cross Health and a recent chair of the CHA board, and Jane Durney Crowley, senior partner of the O'Brien Group consultancy.
