Building Community Partnerships

Paula Autry, president and CEO, Henry Ford Allegiance Health, believes a healthy community is vital to building a strong community.

Since joining Henry Ford Allegiance Health in July 2019, Paula has reached out to local business, non-profit organizations, and civic and faith-based leaders. She has also spoken at events in the community, including the Harold White Sr. Awards Breakfast, Breakfast for Business, the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce Economic Luncheon, and the MLK Diversity Breakfast.

“One of the things that attracted me to Henry Ford Health System was a longstanding commitment to the communities we serve.”

Building these types of relationships helps identify community needs and how to best deliver services.

“As we continue to make changes to meet evolving needs and preferences, an exceptional patient experience and outstanding customer care will always be to be at the center of what we do,” said Paula. “Listening to those we serve while providing the quality and access to care they expect and deserve is essential.”
