Matthew 25 Health and Dental Clinic named Michelle Creager, CPA, its new chief executive officer July 24.
Creager begins this month. She brings a wealth of experience in the medical arena from her time at Physician’s Health Plan of Northern Indiana as well as other medical services organizations in Fort Wayne.
“We are excited for the next chapter with Mrs. Creager leading the organization to ensure those in our community receive the care they need,” Board Chair Dominic Freiburger said. “Her collaborative approach and positive attitude will be a great fit with team members and all those who support Matthew 25.”
In a news release, the Matthew 25 Board of Directors said they are extremely grateful for the leadership of current CEO Mark Dixon over the past six years. “He leaves the clinic in strong shape for the future, better able to help those most in need in the community,” the release said.
Matthew 25 is the only full-time clinic in Allen County providing medical, dental, vision and mental health care at no cost to patients. Matthew 25 serves low-income, uninsured adults in northeast Indiana and northwest Ohio. In the last fiscal year, the clinic served more than 30,500 patient visits by a staff of 32 employees and more than 550 volunteers.
The nonprofit receives no government monies and relies entirely on gifts from individuals, organizations and corporations, as well as grants from foundations.
