As the VP of Mission, Dr. James will work closely with the wide range of programs and agencies that partner with BMC to meet the full spectrum of our patients’ needs, with a goal of improving coordination and fostering innovative and effective new models of care. Working with caregivers throughout BMC, she will have primary responsibility for coordinating and maximizing BMC’s relationships and strategic alliances with organizations including community agencies, housing advocates, community mental health providers, as well as substance abuse and violence prevention programs.
