Dr. Revonda Cornell has served in roles of CEO/COO/CNE within the following healthcare systems: Cleveland Clinic Health System - Lakewood Hospital; Franciscan Sisters of Allegheny - St. Anthony’s and St. Joseph’s Hospitals; and St. Luke’s Hospital. While completing her doctoral studies, she served in varying roles as an independent healthcare consultant. These roles ranged from interim COO/CNO to Director level positions. After completing her EdD, Dr. Cornell served as a healthcare consultant within the Geisinger Healthcare Consulting Group (now xG) which provided her a breadth and depth of knowledge and experience in population health management requirements for value-based clinically integrated systems. During this period, she worked closely with the physician, administrative, and health plan executives to project manage their international consulting services for their ‘Advanced Patient-Centered Medical Home’ readiness assessment and implementation initiatives.

Dr. Cornell has served in the past four years as a consultant to public health and social services organizations to better understand the linkages between all entities across the continuum of care. Providing executive clinical assistance to the Juvenile Welfare Board to facilitate public health and social services linkages with healthcare and organizational collaborative initiatives to build population health management systems of care. Serving as the ‘executive and clinical coach’ for the Children’s Mental Health Initiative that was recently awarded $5.4M. The initiative is in its implementation phase to integrate behavioral health services embedded in 5 Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs). The initial population includes children 4-11 years of age within 5 Federally-Qualified-Health Centers (FQHC). All community entities will utilize the same universal screening tools and scoring ratings; and integrated pathways for referrals and prevention of gaps of service via a centralized oversight infrastructure.

She has continued to blend her knowledge gained in doctoral studies of adult learning theories and transformational change ‘processes’ required for this type of change to occur.
