Bay Clinic Welcomes New Chief Financial Officer

Media Release:

Rising unemployment and a struggling economy on Hawai‘i Island means Bay Clinic, who provides comprehensive health care to all regardless of ability to pay, has seen a dramatic rise in demand for services at their 7 health center sites. To meet the needs of the 18,000 patients they serve, Bay Clinic is developing a strong foundation of leadership to ensure that the health care infrastructure for the medically underserved remains viable.

As a result, Bay Clinic has hired and welcomes a new Chief Financial Officer, Keith Sanderson, to help grow Bay Clinic’s financial position to meet the ever changing health care needs of the community.  Mr. Sanderson brings a wealth of experience to the position, including 25 years of accounting and financial organizational leadership in the health care field. When asked about his relocation to Hawai‘i, Keith says “It was the culture and enchanting, passionate, soulful people that I met that captured my heart.”

In the past several years, Bay Clinic has made tremendous progress in reducing health care disparities including access to dental care, children’s health, and chronic disease management. “In order to respond to our patient’s needs, Keith will add the valuable skills and expertise that will help us continue our progress in meeting our mission of affordable, high quality care for all” stated Paul Strauss, Bay Clinic CEO.

Bay Clinic was founded in 1983 as a grass-roots health care clinic and has grown to be one of the largest comprehensive health care providers on Hawai‘i. As a nonprofit agency, Bay Clinic depends on private donations and grants to continue providing healthcare on a sliding fee scale for low income, uninsured families.
