In his new role as CEO, Adams is responsible for all day-to-day management decisions and the implementation of the company’s strategic and operational objectives.
“I have had the privilege of spending the past six months deeply embedded in the business and culture of Tandigm Health. The more time I spend with this company, the more excited I become to lead this remarkable team as we continue to build upon the strong foundation that Dr. Coletta has created,” said Adams. “I am proud of the accomplishments that Tandigm Health has achieved in its first two years of operation and, in my new role as CEO, I am committed to further advancing our ability to provide high-quality, coordinated care to patients in our community by engaging, enabling and empowering our dedicated network of physicians.”
