Gaylord Specialty Healthcare, a rehabilitation-focused, non-profit health system, has appointed Orange resident Clement Lewin, Ph.D. MBA to its Board of Directors. Lewin is the Associate Vice President of Research and Development Strategy at global biopharmaceutical company Sanofi Pasteur in Cambridge, MA. Lewin has extensive experience in large pharmaceutical and biotechnology environments.
“I am extremely excited to be appointed to the Board of Directors,” he said. “Gaylord is a nationally recognized institution with a wonderful team dedicated to ensuring the best outcomes for its patients. My late wife Susan was a passionate advocate for Gaylord and I understood why after becoming a Gaylord patient myself in 2015. Gaylord helped me make a full recovery from a car accident. I hope that my 25 years of experience in the healthcare field and my perspective as a past patient will add value.”
“We are looking forward to having Clem on our board,” said Robert J. Lyons, Chairman of Gaylord Specialty Healthcare’s Board of Directors. “His knowledge and broad experience in medical and government affairs will be an asset as we continue to expand our patient-focused services and navigate an ever-changing healthcare landscape.”
