FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA – Tiana Blount, MHA, has been named associate vice president, ambulatory operations, of Broward Health Community Health Services (CHS), which provides high quality, affordable healthcare and is the medical safety net for Broward County resident residing in the northern two-thirds of Broward County. In this role, Blount will provide oversight of CHS, as well as Broward Health Ur-gent Care and Broward Health Weston.
In addition, Aldo Calvo, D.O., a board-certified family medicine physician, has been named Community Health Services’ medical director and will manage patient care and quality. Calvo will work closely with Blount, clinical leadership and nearly 30 CHS providers at 10 sites to execute CHS’ vision, enhance quality and continue to set the standard for excellence in healthcare.
“Community health centers are crucial to Broward Health’s overall delivery of care,” said Broward Health President/CEO Beverly Capasso. “Ms. Blount and Dr. Calvo’s leadership will ensure clinical excellence for CHS’ wide array of comprehensive services.”
Blount previously served as director of operations for Broward Health Weston and Broward Health Urgent Care. Blount joined Broward Health in 2013 as director of operations for Broward Health Physician Group (BHPG). Her most notable accomplishments at BHPG was the re-education and training of operations managers and coordinators for improved charge reconciliation, orthopedic construction planning for the 3T MRI and the July 2015 opening of the Broward Sheriff’s Office clinic. Blount received her bachelor’s degree in healthcare administration and long-term care administration, as well as her master’s degree in healthcare administration from The Ohio State University.
For nearly 20 years, Calvo has cared for patients at Clinicas de las Americas, which provides comprehensive and culturally competent primary care services through CHS to the Latin American community. He earned his medical degree from Nova Southeastern University’s College of Osteopathic Medicine in Davie, Fla., and completed his residency in family medicine at Broward Health Medical Center. He has also served as assistant clinical professor of the Broward Health/Nova Southeastern University Family Medicine Residency Program for the past 18 years.
“Community Health Services has been a staple in our community for decades,” said Andrew Ta, M.D., chief medical officer of Broward Health. “Ms. Blount and Dr. Calvo will continue Broward Health’s commitment to service, excellence and delivery of quality, patient-centered care.”
