The Lynn Community Health Center — a Massachusetts-based medical clinic — has appointed Ryan Sullivan as its new Chief Financial Officer, replacing 35-year company veteran Kim MacLeod who has chosen to move into a more advisory-type role within the organization.
"As LCHC continues to grow and move towards implementation of the Ideal Care Model and capitation service model, Ryan has the experience and knowledge of the health center to be able to guide us to success that is centered on our mission and core values," LCHC CEO Dr. Kiame Mahaniah said in a release announcing Sullivan's appointment.
Sullivan officially stepped into the role of CFO on Monday, May 23, 2022. MacLeod has decided to move into a more supportive position at LCHC. She will take on the role of Executive Director of Finance and help guide and advise Sullivan as he transitions to CFO.
Before joining LCHC, Sullivan spent 19 years at Massachusetts General Hospital in a variety of roles that saw him tackle such projects as planning and opening new buildings, as well as director-level financial management. Most recently Sullivan served as the Administrative Director for their Center for Genomic Medicine. His responsibilities included strategic and financial management, human resources, compliance, safety, facilities, and operational leadership. He is also a certified nurse practitioner and has worked in the LCHC Urgent Care since 2017.
"I am excited to join the team,” Sullivan said in a release. “The talented staff of LCHC cares for the most vulnerable patients among us, and the shift to capitated payment models will allow our team to focus on quality, social determinants of health, and personalized care to implement a sustainable Ideal Care Model that integrates our medical, behavioral, dental, optical, and ancillary services."
