ALAMEDA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/03/14 -- Telecare Corporation has appointed Stacey Calhoun to lead several special projects following her retirement as Telecare's Senior Vice President of Operations -- 80 locations and seven states -- a position she held for nearly 18 years.
"Stacey's contributions to Telecare have been absolutely critical to our success," said Anne Bakar, President and Chief Executive Officer of Telecare. "We are delighted that she has agreed to continue providing leadership on several projects that are essential to Telecare's continued growth."
Calhoun's transition to this new role has been part of a multi-year executive succession planning process at Telecare.
Calhoun will focus her expertise on a number of critical areas, including expanded work integrating physical and substance abuse services into Telecare's Recovery Centered Clinical Systems framework and broadening the use of quality improvement and data management systems.
"RCCS is the bedrock for all Telecare programs," said Calhoun. "I'll be working with Medical Director Steve Wilson and our Steering Committee to broaden its application in areas that will be crucial to our success in the era of health reform."
Telecare is based in Alameda, California, and is one of the largest providers of mental health services in the U.S. Telecare works in partnership with hospitals and other behavioral healthcare organizations to design and provide recovery-focused services for high-risk individuals.
