PULASKI, N.Y. — ConnextCare, which provides health-care services to northern Oswego County, is promoting Tricia Peter-Clark to president and CEO, effective June 4.
Peter-Clark — who currently serves as the health center’s executive VP and COO — will succeed Dan Dey as the organization’s top official, the organization said.
ConnextCare was previously known as NOCHSI, or Northern Oswego County Health Services Inc.
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).
“ConnextCare will undoubtedly continue its success under the very capable leadership of Tricia,” Dey said. “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.”
Established in 1969, ConnextCare is a network of health-care practices providing Oswego and surrounding county residents with health care and related services. The center is operated by a private, partially federally funded nonprofit organization governed by a volunteer board of directors.
ConnextCare has health centers in Fulton, Mexico, Oswego, Parish, Phoenix, and Pulaski. It also operates seven school-based health centers located in APW, Mexico, Pulaski, Fulton, and Sandy Creek school districts.
