KENNETT SQUARE – LCH Health and Community Services (LCH), a federally licensed health center in South Chester County, recently welcomed new staff to its leadership team, Joseph A. Greco, MD, Medical Director, and Kate Wickersham, CFRE, Development Director.
As Medical Director, Dr. Greco oversees providers at LCH’s three sites: Community Health Centers in Oxford and Kennett Square and a specialist care site in West Grove that houses Pediatrics, Women’s Health and prenatal and dental care. Dr. Greco, who is Board Certified in Family Medicine, holds a Certificate of Supplemental Qualification (CAQ) in Palliative Medicine and Palliative Care, is a Fellow of the American Academy of Family Physicians, and a Diplomate of the National Board of Medical Examiners. Dr. Greco received his BS from the University of Notre Dame and his MD from Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia.
“We are thrilled to have Dr. Greco join our team,” said Ronan W. Gannon, CEO of LCH. “He has extensive experience as a clinical teacher, program director and medical director. His expertise and experience will provide such important leadership and management to our healthcare workforce. »
As Director of Development, Kate is dedicated to spreading awareness of LCH’s mission to provide integrated health and community services in South Chester County: connecting and building relationships with donors, as well as managing grants and other funding opportunities. “Kate has so much heart for the work we do as a community health center,” Gannon said. “I look forward to the community getting to know her and sharing her energy in our mission.” Kate holds a BA from Widener University and is a Certified Fundraising Executive (CFRE).
Both Greco and Wickersham have strong ties to Chester County. Dr. Greco resided in Phoenixville for over 20 years. He left the area two years ago and worked in central California for Adventist Health. During the pandemic, he worked closely with an immigrant farming community in the Central Valley. “After two years away, I was ready to return to my roots here in Chester County at a community health center like LCH,” Dr. Greco said. “It’s a wonderful community and I can’t wait to get to know the area again.”
Wickersham lived in Chester County for most of his life, raising his family and growing in his profession. “I love this area,” Wickersham said. “Our community is so connected and passionate about supporting each other. LCH’s mission to provide quality integrated healthcare to all members of our community and to be truly patient-centered is exciting. I look forward to serving Chester County with the amazing team at LCH Health and Community Services.
Greco and Wickersham are part of the LCH management team, a group of seven employees who oversee ninety LCH staff across its three sites. LCH supports more than 8,000 patients each year.
