Leading Ladies 2019: Alison L. Croke

President & CEO, Wood River Health Services

Posted

Alison Croke has always believed in accessible, quality healthcare. This ethos drives her work as the President and CEO of WOOD RIVER HEALTH SERVICES, a community health clinic that provides services to people with insurance and for those without access to affordable healthcare.

From an early age, Alison realized the value in giving back to her community. Her time as a student at Bay View Academy taught her about women’s leadership and the importance of community service. Alison has had many accomplishments throughout her career, but she is most proud of her work with the RI Medicaid Program. There, she helped to create the RIte Smiles program, a dental managed care program for children on Medicaid. Over the course of ten years, the RIte Smiles Program improved child dental care drastically, resulting in treatment on-par with commercial insurance.

Alison, who joined the Wood River Health Services staff, last year, hopes to move the organization forward by focusing on clinical quality, and providing behavioral health care treatment for the clinic’s patients. “I love working in the community in which I live, and also working for an organization that directly impacts Rhode Islanders every day."
