As CEO, Holiver will lead the further development of CharterCARE, a joint venture company that operates two hospitals, an elder care services network, a major cancer treatment and research center, a leading behavioral health program, a home health agency and an independent physician association comprised of more than 200 Rhode Island primary care physicians and specialists. Specifically, Holiver will oversee the implementation of CharterCARE’s strategic plan, which envisions an integrated, multi-level network of healthcare providers to provide convenient access to high quality care at lower costs. The complete network is expected to include urgent care centers, diagnostic services centers and additional physician groups.
