EBNHC Appoints Chief Medical Officer
Longtime search yields talented physician with Naval background

(EAST BOSTON, MA, January 23, 2015)—The East Boston Neighborhood Health Center (EBNHC) is pleased to announce the appointment of Jackie S. Fantes, MD, FAAFP, to the role of Chief Medical Officer. Dr. Fantes comes to EBNHC with extensive experience as a family medicine physician in military and private environments. She received her bachelor of arts with honors in math and chemistry at Saint Louis University and earned her medical degree from Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences. Dr. Fantes completed her internship and residency in family medicine at Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton, CA, and is board certified in family medicine with a subspecialty in clinical informatics. She is a Certified Professional in Electronic Health Records (CP-EHR) and is the recipient of multiple leadership and military honors.

Manny Lopes, EBNHC CEO, is pleased to welcome Dr. Fantes as CMO. “We put an extraordinary amount of care and time into filling this role,” Lopes said. “We’re thrilled to bring Dr. Fantes on board. She’s an excellent fit and brings expertise in the patient-centered medical home (PCMH), electronic health records, and meaningful use that will be a huge asset to the health center.”

Dr. Fantes noted that she was attracted to EBNHC’s “deeply held mission and passion for primary care.” After her first week on site, she remarked on the positive energy that pervades the health center. “My takeaway from this week is that everyone really likes working here. I’m so thrilled to be in a place where the morale is good and people are happy to work together and care for our patients. The health center is growing and has such fabulous energy and momentum to make changes with the goal of always trying to better serve our patients. The energy is contagious!”

Prior to joining EBNHC, Dr. Fantes held positions on both US coasts and overseas. As General Medical Officer at the Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton in California, Dr. Fantes provided the 5th Marine Regiment with all primary care needs. For three years she served as an Emergency Department Physician at Naval Hospital Okinawa in Japan, a small community hospital that serves as the referral center of the Pacific and the only American military emergency department on Okinawa, affording Dr. Fantes significant experience treating trauma and acute medical illness.

Returning to the US, Dr. Fantes worked in Rhode Island as a family physician in Naval and private clinics as well as the Providence Community Health Center, where she served as Associate Medical Director. Most recently, Dr. Fantes was the Epic Ambulatory Physician Lead at Lifespan Corporation in Providence.

The East Boston Neighborhood Health Center has been a vital part of the community for 45 years, providing easily accessible, high-quality health care to all who live and work in East Boston and the surrounding communities of Chelsea, Revere, Everett, and Winthrop. EBNHC handles 300,000 patient visits per year—more than any other ambulatory care center in New England.
