Leadership Team

John M. Silva

President and

Chief Executive Officer

John Silva’s career began immediately following graduation from the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA in 1977. His first role in public service began at the Massachusetts State House as a legislative aide. It was his love for healthcare and community that brought him back to his hometown of Hull, Massachusetts in 1979 to become the Executive Director of the Hull Medical Center.

His resume highlights his passion for community health – from his role with the New England Community Health Center Association, to becoming President and CEO of Family Care Health Centers in St. Louis, MO in 1989. In that role, Silva is credited with revitalizing a stagnant community-based healthcare delivery organization by expanding services, delivery locations, and patient visits. In St. Louis, Silva is credited with the expansion of four additional health centers, a new dental practice, and a new administration building as well as the total renovation of the parent and largest health center, along with creating the first health center based Family Practice Residency Program in Missouri.
