When Donna Thompson joined Access Community Health Network (ACCESS) as Chief Operating Officer in 1995, she was well familiar with the difficulties patients faced because they lacked access to primary and preventive care. For more than 30 years, Ms. Thompson has been on the front-line of patient care delivery. Now CEO of ACCESS, a post held since 2004, Ms. Thompson demonstrates daily how a focused commitment to high quality community health care can save lives, revitalize communities, and preserve the possibility of a healthy life for hundreds of thousands of patients of all ages and backgrounds. Prior to joining ACCESS, she spent 14 years as a staff nurse and manager, as well as serving as the Director of Pediatrics at Christ Hospital and Medical Center.
