Mark Yancy is the CEO of NashvilleHealth, a community collaborative focused on improving the health and well-being of all Nashvillians. A lifelong Tennessean, Mark has led the organization for less than a year, but has already made tremendous progress in bringing together diverse stakeholders to creatively move the needle on population health outcomes.
Prior to joining the non-profit, Mark spent 15 years in healthcare focusing on the underserved, with leadership roles at Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare in Memphis and at DaVita Kidney Care.
NashvilleHealth is an organization we started in 2016 with a group of committed community leaders who wanted to see the health of our residents reflect our status as the health services capital of the nation. Surprisingly, Nashville’s health consistently ranks below that of our peer cities.
In my conversation with Mark today, we talk about changing our city’s health trajectory, how our approach can be a model for other cities, and why establishing baseline data is central to understanding the problems and forming solutions.
