Heartland Community Health Center Board of Directors would like to celebrate that a new chief executive officer will join the clinic on March 4, 2019.

Robyn Coventon, SPHR, CCEP, SHRM-SCP will manage all administrative and health care activities for Heartland Community Health Center. As chief executive officer, she will provide overall leadership and direction for all professional, administrative, technical and clerical employees, ensuring the delivery of high quality health care and supporting ongoing quality improvement efforts. She will also work closely with the Board to fulfill the refreshed mission statement of Heartland Community Health Center: Welcoming all who seek care.

“Robyn brings a wealth of experience and leadership from her career as a health care administrator of one of the largest Federally-Qualified Community Health Centers (FQHC) in Oklahoma,” said Devon Kim, Chair of the Heartland board. “She was responsible for the successful planning, development, implementation, and evaluation of strategic business and performance goals, budgets, and health center policies in the Community Health Center. All of the Lawrence community leaders who interviewed her saw her as great fit for our recently merged organization. I am confident that we have found a leader of high integrity who can responsibly engage the talented staff of Heartland Community Health Center in fulfilling our mission.”

“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to join and lead the Heartland team. I look forward to working with the entire staff to deliver high-quality health care and an excellent patient experience to improve the health of our patients – they deserve nothing less,” Coventon said. “I am impressed with the work that Heartland’s staff has done to address the need of the community we serve and know that our best days lie ahead as we build on that foundation of community service.”

Robyn holds a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Central Oklahoma and is currently pursuing her Master of Public Health from Oklahoma State University. While holding an executive position at a community health center, Coventon developed and implemented business improvement and expansion plans, leading the health center to successfully open five new primary care clinics within five years and increase revenue by adding four new service lines to meet the needs of the community.
