Hamilton Health Center
Peterson serves as Hamilton Health Center’s president and CEO. Hamilton Health Center is a federally qualified health center that provides medical, social, behavioral health and dental services to over 20,000 residents of south central Pennsylvania.
Peterson has served Hamilton Health Center for over 20 years. She has over 35 years’ experience in public and community health, with a specific focus on issues that disproportionately impact minority and low income populations.
She will transition to a consulting role with Hamilton Health Center in early 2022. In that role Peterson will focus on developing and enhancing strategic partnerships and overseeing Hamilton’s new capital campaign.
The campaign will seek to raise $16 million to fund renovation and expansion plans for Hamilton’s 17th Street campus in Harrisburg.
