Caron Treatment Centers, a leading and nationally recognized not-for-profit provider of addiction and behavioral healthcare treatment, is pleased to announce the appointment of Lisa Marsilio as its new Chief Operating Officer.
“I’m thrilled to have Lisa on board as a partner in the leadership at Caron,” said Doug Tieman, Caron’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “This is a new position that was specifically created to ensure the successful implementation of our strategic blueprint. Lisa’s vast knowledge of the healthcare system is critical as we focus on unparalleled innovation, leading medical and technological tools, proven patient outcomes and expansion in key regions.

I am looking forward to working with the Executive Leadership Team to ensure that Caron is at its strongest, so that we can continue our not-for-profit mission of transforming as many lives as possible.
