Alec was most recently a director with United Health Service, a 600+ bed health system in Binghamton, NY. Prior to that position, he was the Director of Market Operations for Evolent Health in Arlington, VA and Project Manager with Wellstar Health System in Atlanta, GA.
“We are thrilled to welcome Alec to the Lowcountry and the Summerville Medical Center family,” said Chief Executive Officer Lisa Valentine. “His professional accomplishments include leading multi-million dollar acquisitions to expanding Emergency Medicine, Critical Care, and Obstetrical Care at numerous facilities. He brings a wealth of experience and knowledge that will be a significant resource as Summerville Medical Center continues to grow to meet the needs of our community.”
