Outer Cape Health Services Appoints Chief Dev. Officer

Kathleen Weiner
July 15, 2017 — Outer Cape Health Services, a nonprofit based in Harwich Port that operates community health centers in Harwich, Wellfleet, and Provincetown, recently announced that Kathleen Weiner has been appointed chief development officer.

“Kathleen has already added great depth and insight into our development and marketing efforts,” according to Patricia Nadle, CEO of Outer Cape Health Services (OCHS). “We are fortunate to have her join the development and senior leadership team at such an exciting and important time for OCHS.”

Weiner joins OCHS as it begins a period of significant growth and expansion targeted at meeting the unmet need for healthcare on the Lower and Outer Cape. Plans call for the development of a new location for the health center in Harwich that will triple its current capacity, as well as significant renovations or replacement of the aging Wellfleet health center.

“Given the vital role that OCHS plays in the lives of Outer and Lower Cape residents and visitors, I simply could not have asked for a more meaningful opportunity to serve the region that my family and I also call home,” said Weiner.

Weiner spent 25 years with One to One Group in Sarasota, most recently as director of customer relations, during which she led experience leading development, sales, and client services activities for regional and national nonprofits across the country. She is a past president of the Ringling College Library Association.

She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Worcester State University, and is a Certified Fundraising Executive.

A year ago, Sally Deane stepped down as chief executive officer of OCHS after nearly seven years, following a decision by the board to restructure the top job, and was succeeded by Nadle, who had been the organization's chief operating officer.

Last September, OCHS scaled back plans for what had been projected to be a $38 million expansion.

According to a report in the Cape Cod Times, "The original plan called for new clinics in Harwich and Brewster and the knocking down and rebuilding of the organization’s clinic in Wellfleet. Instead, Outer Cape Health Services might lease and renovate space in Harwich, build the new clinic in Brewster and either rebuild or rehabilitate the existing Wellfleet facility."

OCHS was founded in 1987 through the merger of Health Associates of Provincetown and the AIM Medical Center in Wellfleet. Today, OCHS cares for more than 16,000 patients annually. The Outer Cape comprises the towns of Eastham, Orleans, Provincetown, Truro, and Wellfleet. The Lower Cape comprises Brewster, Chatham, and Harwich.

For the year ending June 30, 2015, OCHS reported $18.64 million in revenue, of which $3.38 million came from contributions and grants, and $18.69 million in expenses, according to its most recently available federal tax filing.
