Community Health Programs Names Dr. Ken Faber Chief Medical Officer

GREAT BARRINGTON — Community Health Programs (CHP) has named Dr. Kenneth Faber chief medical officer.

Faber has been serving as CHP’s interim chief medical officer since May 2021. He oversees a clinician staff of about 200 in CHP’s practice networks in Great Barrington, Lee, Pittsfield, and North Adams, as well as CHP’s mobile health unit.

“We are so pleased that Ken has agreed to accept this position permanently,” said Lia Spiliotes, CEO at CHP. “He has already had a huge impact on our organization as we continue to build overall health, and healthcare access, for everyone in Berkshire County.”

Before joining CHP, Faber was vice president of Clinical Care at Grand Rounds Inc., a San Francisco-based healthcare company, where he focused on accelerating development of telehealth services during the early COVID-19 shutdown.

From 1997 to 2019, he worked with Colorado Permanente Medical Group in a series of leadership positions, including clinical care provider, senior physician director, chair of the internal review board, physician director for process improvement, and, most recently, vice president.

As a practicing physician, he worked with Colorado Reproductive Endocrinology and was an assistant professor in the University of Colorado Department of Reproductive Endocrinology.

Faber earned his medical degree at the University of Michigan School of Medicine. He went on to complete a residency training in obstetrics and gynecology at Maine Medical Center, followed by a fellowship in reproductive endocrinology at Duke University School of Medicine.

He was named “Top Doctor” by Denver’s 5280 magazine in 2011 and was awarded the Council on Resident Education Teaching Award in 1999, 2000, and 2002.
