"Sam Chase Tapped to Lead Clinic Coalition"

May 7, 2010

This week, the Coalition of Community Health Clinics (CCHCannounced the selection of Sam Chase, former Chief of Staff to Commissioner Fish, as its new Executive Director.

Said Board Co-Chair Lisa Cline, "we are delighted to have Sam leading our team. He is skilled in the nuts and bolts of organizing coalitions, nonprofit management, and policy development. But more importantly, he will bring a solid history of collaboration, innovation, and strategic thinking to the health care arena."

CCHC is a coalition of thirteen private, non-profit health clinics in Multnomah County. Coalition clinics provide health services to uninsured and under-insured men, women, and children in the Portland area - in fiscal year 2008-09, CCHC helped nearly 50,000 access health care.

The Coalition is very luck to have Sam! We wish him all the best in this exciting new role.
