A Hampton Roads health care executive is switching jobs.

Carol Sale, the current executive director of the Lackey Clinic in York County, was named the president and CEO of the Williamsburg Health Foundation.

Sale began her career in health care with Riverside Health System in 1982, and for the last 30 years has bounced around Hampton Roads, including stops at Sentara and the Bon Secours Mary Immaculate Hospital.

“Having worked in the health care safety net and knowing organizations that are supported by the health foundation, I had tremendous respect for the work that they do and look forward to helping the health care needs in the community,” Sale said.

At the Lackey Clinic, Sale has led a staff of 31 full- and part-time employees and has helped provide care to nearly 2,000 patients, spanning 15,000 medical visits each year.

The Williamsburg Health Foundation provides grants to improve the current and future health in the Greater Williamsburg area and also tackles health challenges through community collaboration.

Sale is taking over the position from Jeanne Zeidler, who has held the CEO position for the last decade, according to a news release from the Williamsburg Health Foundation.

“The Board of Trustees is confident that Carol’s strong administrative experience and deep understanding of the many factors that impact health status will serve to advance the Foundation’s mission to inspire collaboration, mobilize resources, and encourage innovation to enhance the health and well-being of people living in Greater Williamsburg,” said James Golden, the chairman of the Williamsburg Health Foundation.

Sale’s term will begin on May 16.

In preparation for her role, Sale said she’s been networking with other health foundation CEOs, reviewed the foundation’s strategic plan and will attend the Grantmakers In Health conference in Chicago next month.

“There’s all kinds of learning opportunities ahead,” Sale said. “The board has been gracious enough to afford me these opportunities.”
