Dimock Center Appoints Charles Anderson as President and CEO
January 5, 2021 — The Dimock Center, a nonprofit located in Boston's Roxbury neighborhood that provides low cost health and human services, yesterday announced that Charles Anderson has been appointed president and CEO of the 159-year-old organization.
He succeeds Myechia Minter-Jordan, who stepped down after serving six years as president and CEO of The Dimock Center. Peter Gerondeau led the organization since September while it searched for Minter-Jordan’s successor.
“As a physician leader, healthcare executive, advocate for health equity, and entrepreneur, Charles intuitively understands The Dimock Center’s focus on integrating healthcare, mental health support and education services for patients and families in need,” said Bob Rivers, board chair.
“He is a humanitarian at heart and we believe his leadership of multi-focused approaches to building healthier communities is critical to addressing a pandemic that is exacerbating a health crisis and economic devastation among low-income Black and Brown communities."
Anderson most recently was co-founder and health and wellness operating affiliate as Exaltare Capital Partners. Prior to founding Exaltare Capital Partners, Anderson was vice president of corporate and business development for the Caritas Christi Healthcare System, and a manager in the healthcare practice at Deloitte.
“The Dimock Center has been a trusted health care partner in Roxbury for more than 150 years. I am honored to be part of an organization that has been focused on correcting historic health inequities since its founding in 1862, especially as this pandemic has exacerbated inequities and health disparities in communities of color,” said Anderson.
Anderson earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in biochemistry from Princeton University, a Master of Public Health degree from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, a Doctor of Medicine degree from the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, and a Master of Business Administration degree from the Boston University Questrom School of Business.
He serves on the board of Cambridge College, where he chairs the finance committee, the board of the Boys and Girls Club of Boston, and the board of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
Founded in 1862 as the New England Hospital for Women and Children, The Dimock Center is the largest employer in Roxbury, with over 500 employees. It is regarded as a national model for delivering comprehensive health care in an urban setting.
For the year ending June 30, 2019, The Dimock Center reported $45.1 million in revenue, of which $22.8 million came from contributions and grants, and $44.2 million in expenses, according to its most recently available federal tax filing.
