PHMC Announces Executive Leadership Appointments

Dr. Kevin Caputo appointed organization’s first Chief Medical Officer

Katherine Addison named Program Director of Interim House, Inc. and Karen Sinclair named Executive Director of Visiting Nurse Association of Greater Philadelphia

PHILADELPHIAPublic Health Management Corporation (PHMC) is pleased to announce several executive leadership appointments across the enterprise. Kevin Caputo, MD, FAPA will provide leadership and guidance to PHMC’s clinical activities as the organization’s first Chief Medical Officer. Subsidiary appointments include Katherine Addison as Program Director of Interim House, Inc. (IHI) and Karen Sinclair as Executive Director of Visiting Nurse Association of Greater Philadelphia (VNA).

“PHMC continues to grow and extend our mission and we look forward to building on this exciting momentum with several key leadership additions,” said Richard J. Cohen, President and Chief Executive Officer of PHMC. “With their passion and commitment to public health, impressive credentials, and deep understanding of the social determinants of health, we are certain Kevin, Katherine and Karen will contribute greatly to PHMC’s advancement.”

As Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Caputo will ensure high-quality, patient-centered health care delivery across the PHMC enterprise and lead continued relationship development with health care systems throughout the region. He joins PHMC following an impressive career with Crozer-Keystone Health System, where he served as the Chief Behavioral Health Officer, which encompassed dual roles as Chairman of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health and President of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health service line. Kevin built a long and distinguished career at Crozer, joining the health system as a house physician in 1986.

“I’m proud to join the PHMC team at a time when the need for high-quality, affordable, and integrated care through a health equity lens has never been greater,” said Dr. Caputo. “The opportunity to provide patient-focused health care and care coordination to the communities across our region that need it the most isn’t a responsibility I take lightly, and I look forward to identifying new and innovative approaches to achieve this mission.”

Katherine Addison brings nearly 20 years of experience working in behavioral health, mental health, and addiction treatment settings to IHI, most recently serving as Director of Case Management and Program Standards at PHMC’s Forensic Intensive Recovery program, where she has held various roles since 2002. As Program Director for Interim House Inc., a PHMC subsidiary, she will oversee the organization’s mission to provide a continuum of comprehensive services to women with substance use and mental health challenges. She transitions into this role following Kathy Wellbank’s retirement after a nearly 30-year tenure with the organization.

“I’m thrilled to join the IHI team and continue with the PHMC family. I couldn’t be more thankful for the incredible roadmap Kathy has provided as I step into this new role,” said Addison. “My career has been dedicated to improving care for individuals impacted by addiction, behavioral health, and mental health challenges, and I look forward to continuing IHI’s mission of providing specialized, innovative treatment for women.”

With a successful track record in health care leadership, Karen Sinclair will lead VNA in its continuing mission and legacy of delivering comprehensive home health, palliative, and end-of-life care of the highest quality. Sinclair has been a member of the VNA family for more than half her career and was a pivotal member of the executive leadership team for 13 years as the Chief Nursing Officer and Executive Vice President of Home Health. Most recently, Sinclair served as Administrator of Home Care with Blessings4Ever Home Care in Philadelphia, where she was responsible for quality service delivery and day-to-day operations. She joins the organization following VNA’s affiliation with PHMC earlier this year.

“I couldn’t be more excited to be welcomed back into the VNA family for this wonderful next chapter,” added Sinclair. “VNA is the region’s leading nonprofit home health, palliative, and hospice provider, and integrating with PHMC’s vast array of programs and subsidiaries will provide us with the opportunity to expand services and serve more communities.”
