Traverse Health Clinic Announces Medical Director
Traverse Health Clinic (Traverse Health) announces the appointment of a new Medical Director. Anne Cavanagh, MD, certified in internal medicine and palliative care, assumes the role this week as Dr. Lynn Swan steps down. Dr. Swan, who has held the position for four years, will continue her involvement with Traverse Health’s Quality Committee as well as other volunteer efforts.
Traverse Health has undergone dramatic changes since the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, most notably transitioning from a free clinic to an affordable community health center, welcoming people of all ages with all types of insurances, in addition to the uninsured. Among other leadership roles, Dr. Cavanagh has prior experience as Medical Director for Thunder Bay Community Health Service, also a community health center, and looks forward to this role at Traverse Health. She will continue to provide patient care and is accepting new patients.
Arlene Brennan, Executive Director at Traverse Health Clinic stated, “We are very pleased that Dr. Cavanagh has accepted the position as Medical Director for our organization. She joined Traverse Health earlier this year and her expertise will be instrumental as our health center continues to serve an increasing number of families in our community.”
