Kathy Wood-Dobbins, TPCA’s CEO, has announced to the TPCA board of directors that she will retire from her position in June 2018, bringing to a close an extraordinary career of leadership with the Association spanning 27 years.

A tireless advocate for Community Health Centers, Wood-Dobbins has served as a national leader chairing the National Association of Community Health Centers' Leadership Committee for primary care associations and serving on numerous state and federal committees and boards. She was a founding board member of the Rural Health Association of Tennessee and was named Association Executive of the Year by the Tennessee Society of Association Executives. The Association has grown to a staff of 20 and purchased an office building at 710 Spence Lane under her leadership.

 “We are grateful to Kathy for her service,” said Phillip Tatum, CEO of Three Rivers Community Health Center and president of the TPCA board of directors. “In her 25-plus years at TPCA, she has not only advocated for health centers and patients, but helped to guide many of my colleagues and myself in our roles as health center leaders. She is leaving impressive shoes to fill, but I know she’s also leaving a foundation that will allow TPCA and its members to move forward and grow.

The board of directors is launching a search to find TPCA’s next CEO and has engaged Frank Parsons with the Center for Profit Management to conduct the executive search. The position profile will be posted on the TPCA website in January 2018.
