SPRINGFIELD — Dr. Jonathan Moseley, whose practice has focused on the care of underserved populations, has been named chief medical officer at Caring Health Center, a community health center serving more than 21,000 patients in Greater Springfield, President and CEO Tania Barber announced.
Moseley comes to Caring Health Center from Wake Forest Health Network in Hickory, N.C., where he worked as an outpatient primary-care provider. He also served as physician director of Continuing Medical Education at Catawba Valley Medical Center and volunteered as medical director and physician at two free clinics.
“We are thrilled to have Dr. Moseley on our team along with the expertise he brings to the Caring Health Center community,” Barber said. “We look forward to the positive outcomes for all communities that we serve.”
As his career has developed, Moseley has moved the emphasis of his practice toward providing healthcare to those most in need. He is interested in community outreach, education, and delivering care to those who otherwise would not have access.
“Caring Health Center provides a unique opportunity for me to work for a diverse patient population from around the world, right here in Western Massachusetts,” he said. “Health is a fundamental human right, and I have a strong interest in improving access to primary healthcare for people of all nationalities, ethnicities, and backgrounds. Caring Health Center is full of passionate, hardworking people serving their community and their neighbors. The staff here believes in providing high-quality care to their patients. This is a place where I can live out my values.
“I believe that the best medicine is practiced with humility, compassion, and love,” he added. “I enjoy getting to know my patients and sharing life with them. My experiences and my personal faith have given me a passion to provide excellent, holistic healthcare, regardless of my patients’ ability to pay.”
While maintaining his practice in the U.S., Moseley has traveled to Bolivia, China, the Czech Republic, Haiti, and Peru on short-term medical projects.
“Providing primary healthcare to the diverse patient population of Caring Health Center is an exciting opportunity,” he said. “I have travelled internationally and observed many different healthcare systems in action. I have also studied global health at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. So it is a particular privilege to work with the refugee population of Western Massachusetts. I am proud of the way that my co-workers here work tirelessly for our patients, particularly when they move here from other places.”
Moseley, a fellow of the American College of Physicians, received a doctor of medicine degree from the University of North Carolina School of Medicine in 2007, and completed his internal-medicine internship and residency at the University of Alabama at Birmingham in 2010. He is pursuing a master of public health degree from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
