Sabrina Williams, MBA, currently vice president of Human Resources at Neighborhood Health Plan (NHP), has been appointed interim vice president of BWHC Human Resources.
Williams, who began working with the leadership team at BWHC in December, will transition out of NHP through January.
“Already an experienced HR leader within the Partners family, Sabrina brings extensive HR knowledge and experience, combined with leadership skills and talent in the strategic areas that will be our major focus this year,” said Ron M. Walls, MD, BWHC executive vice president and chief operating officer.
Those strategic areas include programs in recruitment and retention, change management, diversity and inclusion, and workforce development, Walls said.
Williams has more than 15 years of experience as an HR executive. Prior to joining NHP, she served as the director of Human Resources for the Health Science Campuses at Tufts University. She has also held leadership roles at several nonprofit organizations, including the Urban League of Eastern Massachusetts, South End Settlements and the Roxbury Community College Foundation.
She received a bachelor’s in Sociology and Economics from Brandeis University and a master’s in business administration from Simmons College School of Management.
“I am excited to be part of a great organization that delivers the highest-quality care while supporting and engaging employees in meaningful ways,” Williams said. “Ultimately, an organization is as good as its people, and from what I have seen and heard so far, the Brigham is full of talented, dedicated and caring staff. I believe in leveraging each person’s talents and skills to deliver for our patients and each other.”
