Southeastern Health Partners (SEHP) named Blake Allison as its Chief Executive Officer. Southeastern Health Partners is a clinically integrated network (CIN), which includes AnMed Health, Bon Secours St. Francis and Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System.
Allison comes to the Upstate of South Carolina from Dallas, TX, where he was chief operating officer at Baylor Scott & White Quality Alliance. Baylor Scott & White Quality Alliance is a network of clinical providers and facilities composed of more than 6,000 primary and specialty care physicians, 46 hospitals, 29 post-acute care facilities, retail pharmacy clinics, and other healthcare providers.
“I was interested in health care early in life,” Allison said. “I came from a military family and joined the Navy as a way to serve our country and also start working in the healthcare industry. I developed a great deal of experience working with physicians early in my career. I am excited about joining SEHP and working to deliver high quality and more affordable healthcare to the Upstate region.”
“Blake’s previous experience with accountable care and physician organizations will provide tremendous value as he directs the growth and vision of Southeastern Health Partners,” said Paul Butler, Chair of SEHP and Senior Vice President of Population Health for Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System. “His focus on achieving quality through the collaboration of physicians and hospital systems aligns well with the goals of SEHP.”
“We could not be more pleased to have Blake take on the CEO role and look forward to working with him to achieve our shared vision of demonstrably improving the health of our patients across the Upstate,” said Clayton Jeffords, AnMed Health Assistant Vice President of Clinical Integration.
“We are honored to welcome Blake as CEO of Southeastern Health Partners and value the expertise he brings in leading accountable care organizations (ACOs). ACOs through his leadership have been proven to achieve efficiencies and cost savings while delivering high quality healthcare services,” said Craig McCoy, CEO of Bon Secours St. Francis Health System.
