Community Health Center announces new CEO
GREENFIELD — Kenneth Guilbault has been named the new chief executive officer of the Community Health Center of Franklin County.
“I am very excited to join the team at CHCFC,” said Guilbault in a news release. “By providing health care to populations that couldn’t otherwise access and/or afford it, health centers provide a huge benefit to the greater American society.”
Guilbault of South Hadley has executive experience at two nonprofit hospitals. Before coming to the Community Health Center, he was vice president of clinical and professional services at Northampton’s Cooley Dickinson Hospital. Previously, he was executive vice president of Brighton Medical Center in Portland, Maine.
He holds a bachelor’s degree in biology from the Univeristy of Massachsetts, Amherst, and a master’s degree in business administration from Springfield’s Western New England University.
“We are very pleased to have Ken on board, and look forward to working with him,” said Terrence Blanchard, president of the Board of Directors.
Guilbault will be responsible for the overall operations of Community Health Center, which has locations in Greenfield, Turners Falls, and Orange.
All three locations are federally qualified community health centers, which provide coordinated medical, dental, nutritional and behavioral health services.
