Summit Community Care Clinic Announces New CEO

Nov 21, 2023

On Friday, November 9, 2023, Summit Community Care Clinic appointed Daniel Becker, MBA as the nonprofit’s new Chief Executive Officer. The appointment was a result of a majority vote by the Care Clinic’s Board of Directors after a several-month search to fill the position. Becker joined the Care Clinic in June 2023 as the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and was then appointed Interim CEO in September 2023.

“Having experienced first-hand the passion of our dedicated staff and the strong community connections that improve the lives of our friends, family, and neighbors, I am eager to lead the Care Clinic in its mission to provide high-quality, integrated, accessible healthcare to all,” stated Becker.

Becker’s career includes 15 years of experience in health care, with 13 of those years serving as CFO. Becker has managed operating budgets ranging from $6 to $30 million dollars for Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) and FQHC-Look-Alikes. This includes Bridge Community Health Clinic (FQHC) in Wausau, WI from 2010 to 2013, Forest County Potawatomi Health & Wellness Center (FQHC Look Alike) in Crandon, WI from 2015 to 2017, Marillac Clinic Inc. (FQHC) in Grand Junction, CO from 2017 to 2023, and concurrently, Healthfirst Bluegrass Inc (FQHC) in Lexington, KY from 2021 to 2023.

Education and Early Career

In 1987, Becker joined the US Air Force and was honorably discharged three and a half years later following an injury. After his military service, Dan earned his bachelor’s in accounting from the University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire and a Master of Business Administration from the University of Wisconsin -Oshkosh.

“Dan’s experience and leadership in health care nonprofits and his demonstrated dedication to the Care Clinic solidified our decision to appoint him to the CEO role. His steady style and fresh perspective support the direction we would like the Clinic to go to better serve the community,” said Dana Cottrell, president of the Care Clinic’s Board of Directors. 

Welcoming New Board Members

The Care Clinic’s Board of Directors appointed three new members during their October 2023 Board meeting. Ismael Calle, Vice President of FirstBank, Dr. David Biggs, oncologist at Summit Oncology, and Dr. Ziad Haydar, health care executive, have joined 11 existing Board members to serve two-year terms.
