The Chase Brexton Health Care Board of Directors has announced the hiring of Patrick Mutch as the organization’s new CEO. Mutch joins Chase Brexton from Saint Agnes Hospital, where he most recently served as the hospital’s interim President and CEO.
“I am extremely excited to join Chase Brexton Health Care, and carry on its legacy of community care serving some of Baltimore’s most vulnerable populations,” Mutch said. “Chase Brexton’s mission is inspiring to me, and I am honored to lead a group of health care providers with such a strong commitment to their patients. Healthcare is changing to integrate all determinants of patient health including medical, behavioral, dental and social. Chase Brexton is uniquely positioned to accomplish this vision and be a leader in the community.”
Mutch will seek to further Chase Brexton’s status as a premier Federally Qualified Health Center, and continue its growth across the central Maryland region. In the coming months, Mutch also plans to meet with LGBT community leaders.
“I am keenly aware of the important role that Chase Brexton has served in Baltimore’s LGBT community over the past 40 years,” he said. “These roots run deep, and I commit to honor and uphold them.”
Mutch was hired following a month‐long process undertaken by the board’s Executive Search Committee, and in keeping with longstanding guidelines for all Federally Qualified Health Centers established by the federal Health Resources and Services Administration. The committee met with Chase Brexton staff to learn more about the qualities staff desired in the organization’s next CEO, and evaluated a series of highly‐qualified candidates.
“We were impressed by Patrick’s deep understanding of our welcoming, affirming, patient‐focused care,” said Board Chair Carolyn Kennedy. “He possesses a wealth of experience in both non‐profit and for‐profit health care systems, and understands how to lead and develop integrated care models.”
Mutch holds a Bachelor of Arts degree and a Master’s degree in Public Health specializing in health care administration, both from the University of Pittsburgh. He is active in the community, serving on several civic associations. He has also been a practitioner faculty for the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School.
