LCH Health and Community Services (LCH), a federally qualified health center in southern Chester County, recently welcomed new staff to their executive leadership team: Joseph A. Greco, MD, as medical director, and Kate Wickersham, CFRE, as director of development.

As medical director, Dr. Greco oversees the providers at LCH’s three locations: community health centers in Oxford and Kennett Square and a specialty care site in West Grove that houses pediatrics, women’s health and prenatal, and dental care. Dr. Greco, who is board certified in family practice, holds a certificate of added qualifications (CAQ) in hospice and palliative care medicine. He is a fellow at the American Academy of Family Physicians, and a diplomat of the National Board of Medical Examiners. Dr. Greco received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Notre Dame and his Doctor of Medicine from the Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia.

“We are thrilled to have Dr. Greco join our team,” said Ronan W. Gannon, LCH’s Chief Executive Officer. “He has broad experience as a clinical professor, program director, and medical director. His expertise and experience will bring such important leadership and management to our health care staff.”

 As director of development, Wickersham focuses on spreading the word about LCH’s mission of providing integrated health and community services to southern Chester County: connecting and building relationships with donors as well as managing grants and other funding opportunities. “Kate has so much heart for the work that we do as a community health center,” said Gannon. “I can’t wait for the community to get to know her and share her energy in our mission.”  Kate has a bachelor’s degree from Widener University and is a certified fund raising executive (CFRE).

Both Dr. Greco and Wickersham have close ties to Chester County. Dr. Greco resided in Phoenixville for over 20 years. He moved away from the area two years ago and was working in central California for Adventist Health. During the pandemic, he worked closely with an immigrant farming community in the Central Valley. 

“After two years away, I was ready to return to my roots here in Chester County at a community health center like LCH,” said Dr. Greco. “This is a wonderful community, and I can’t wait to reacquaint myself with the area.”

Wickersham has lived in Chester County for most of her life, raising her family and growing in her profession. “I love this area,” Wickersham said. “Our community is so connected and passionate about supporting one another. LCH’s mission of providing quality, integrated health care to all in our community, and truly being patient centered is exciting.  I look forward to serving Chester County with the amazing team at LCH Health and Community Services.”

Dr. Greco and Wickersham are a part of the executive leadership team at LCH, a group of seven staff that oversee ninety LCH staff members across its three locations. LCH provides care for over 8,000 patients each year.
