Chief Executive Officer
Dr. Faith Dyson-Washington is a C-suite executive and clinical psychologist who cares deeply about ending health disparities and improving health outcomes for communities that have been marginalized. She is the first African American woman to hold the position of CEO of CBH, a mental and behavioral health managed care organization responsible for guiding the delivery of high-quality care to its federally insured members.
Since taking the helm of CBH in 2020 at the height of the pandemic, Dr. Washington has employed her expertise, extensive clinical experience, and innovative vision to help establish CBH as a more agile organization poised for growth and ready to take on the challenges forged by a dynamic and rapidly changing healthcare landscape.
Under Dr. Washington’s leadership, CBH has expanded partnerships with community-based organizations growing the company’s reach and deepening relationships with trusted community voices. The company is investing in technology that supports data-driven decision-making to guide outcomes and is streamlining business processes to eradicate work redundancies and reallocate dollars in areas expected to propel the organization forward.
Dr. Washington received her bachelor’s degree from Temple University where she double majored in psychology and African American studies. She conducted research at the University of Ghana and was an adjunct faculty member at Drexel University where she earned her Ph.D. in clinical psychology and master of business administration. She envisions a world where social determinants of health and health disparities no longer exist and believes intentional, unbiased access to quality care combined with data-driven decision-making and evidence-based practices are a step in the right direction to fulfilling this vision. The Philadelphia native lives in the city with her husband and children.
