2021 Power 25 Health Care: Mark Masselli

Mark Masselli has been a major innovator in the community health center space and he’s also taken a proactive role in helping the state respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mark Masselli, President & CEO, Community Health Center

He started Middletown-based Community Health Center as a standalone clinic in 1972 with a group of Wesleyan University students and community activists, and built it into a leading federally qualified, independent, nonprofit healthcare provider in the state, offering comprehensive primary care services in medicine, dentistry and behavioral health to more than 145,000 people, particularly lower-income underserved patients.

He’s been known for bringing an entrepreneurial spirit to CHC, which has been expanding in recent years. In 2019, the health system debuted a $47-million expansion, adding three new healthcare sites totaling 81,400 square feet — in Hartford, Middletown and Stamford — that expanded primary care access to an additional 16,000 low-income patients.

During the pandemic, Masselli has led statewide efforts to open mass vaccination sites. In January, CHC opened Connecticut’s largest vaccination site at the time at Pratt & Whitney Stadium in East Hartford, which administered thousands of shots to residents.
