Wednesday, January 20, 2021

Chairman Michael C. Backus, on behalf of the Board of Directors of ConnextCare is pleased to announce the promotion of Tricia Peter-Clark as ConnextCares next President/Chief Executive Officer effective June 4, 2021.

Peter-Clark currently is the health centers Executive Vice President/Chief Operating Officer. Prior to joining ConnextCare in 2013, Peter-Clark was the Coordinator of the Rural Health Network of Oswego County and Director of Health Operations, both under the auspices of Oswego County Opportunities (OCO). She earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Health Services from DYouville College in Buffalo, New York and holds a Masters Degree in Business Administration, with a concentration in Leadership from St. Josephs College of Maine. She is also a Fellow in the American College of Healthcare Executives.

Peter-Clark stated, I am very grateful for the ConnextCare Boards confidence in me. I look forward to continuing to build on the impressive legacy that was established by Dan Dey and excited about the many strategic opportunities ahead.”

According to Dey, ConnextCare will undoubtedly continue its success under the very capable leadership of Tricia. Her accomplishments have been innumerable and remarkable since joining ConnextCare when it acquired several primary care practices from OCO and Oswego Health (OH) in 2013. She has been singularly instrumental in building a cohesive and positive culture among the initially diverse programs, and effecting a very successful re-branding from Northern Oswego County Health Services, Inc. to the symbolic ConnextCare. Among her many notable successes, she has been pivotal to guiding ConnextCare through the challenging COVID-19 Pandemic.”

Backus offered that, under Deys leadership ConnextCare has experienced exponential growth and financial stability. In Deys thirteen years, ConnextCares budget has quintupled and its employed staff tripled, considerably adding to the economic vitality of Oswego County. ConnextCare has added significantly to the quality and depth of its medical, dental, behavioral health and school-based health center programs, while introducing vital care management, psychiatry and substance use disorder services. Additionally, Dey has brought in millions of dollars into the Oswego and Central New York communities through the initiation and leadership of several community collaborative efforts, including the Preserving the Oswego County Primary Care Safety Net Initiative, Oswego County Integrated Delivery Network, and the Upstate Community Health Collaborative Independent Provider Association.”

Dey said, Its been an extreme honor to have served under such a dedicated and engaged community Board of Directors and with an incredibly compassionate and talented staff. Their contributions to the health and well-being of the community have been enriching and immeasurable. As I move into semi-retirement, I am particularly gratified that ConnextCare has had an influence in preparing two dynamic, talented, and young individuals for leadership of the two largest health care providers in Oswego County in Peter-Clark and Backus, who was recently named as Executive Vice President/Chief Operating Officer of OH.”

Over the course of the past week ConnextCare has worked diligently to coordinate vaccination clinics across Oswego County to administer COVID-19 vaccines to eligible New Yorkers in phase 1a and 1b as outlined by the New York State Department of Health.

Beginning on January 13th, ConnextCare held clinics for the Sandy Creek, APW, Mexico and Pulaski schools to vaccinate district staff members. Efforts continued through the weekend when vaccination clinics were held in the ConnextCare Pulaski and Oswego offices.

Through these efforts, ConnextCare was able to administer 100% of the initial vaccinations received from the New York State Department of Health.

“ConnextCare is proud to have reached its commitment of administering 100% of its initial 1,600 doses received. We successfully achieved this goal through the remarkable efforts of the staff across our network,” stated Tricia Peter-Clark, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. “I am grateful to the numerous ConnextCare employees who sacrificed family and off hour leisure time to dedicate overtime hours and effort in meeting unrelenting community demand. ConnextCare looks forward to continuing meeting community needs as future doses are received.”
