I’m pleased to share the news that after a nationwide search and evaluation of a strong pool of candidates, the Board of Directors has chosen Antony Sheehan, M. Phil, RN, Dip. HSM as the organization’s next President and CEO. He will join South Shore Mental Health on June 5, 2017.
Antony has over 25 years of experience in healthcare strategy, management, clinical and policy roles. He began his career in the United Kingdom as a clinical nurse specializing in addictive behavior and mental health. He pursued his interests in health care policy and administration, serving as a Senior Civil Servant during The Blair Administration and then as a hospital CEO. Mr. Sheehan moved to the United States after an appointment at the Institute for Healthcare Improvement in Cambridge, MA. Most recently, he was the President of Church Health Center and a Senior Advisor in Community Health Programs at Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare in Memphis, Tennessee.
Antony’s experience in mental health policy, management, and clinical expertise will be a strong combination to lead the organization in today’s dynamic and evolving environment. His approach to leadership, staff development and strategy will allow South Shore Mental Health to continue to meet the needs of our clients, while expanding our programs and services to meet unmet needs in the community.
Antony has a Bachelor’s of Education from Manchester Metropolitan University, a Master of Philosophy from Nottingham University and a Postgraduate Diploma in Health Services Management from Keele University.
On behalf of the entire SSMH Board, I’m thrilled to extend a warm welcome to Antony as he embarks upon his leadership of South Shore Mental Health.
