Leesa Bain is Vice President of Care Coordination (CC), Quality Management (QM) and Transitions to Community Living (TCL). The community-based CC team ensures that our members are engaged in the services that support their recovery and quality of life, which may include transitioning into an independent living environment. The QM team works with network providers to ensure that services align with the best practice standards for care.

Bain has over 30 years of healthcare experience. Prior to joining Cardinal Innovations in 2012 as Director of QM, Bain was an independent healthcare consultant working with healthcare organizations/systems, state associations and large physician groups to create customized strategies that maximized clinical outcomes while improving clinical and operational performance. Initiatives included leading executive teams in quality strategic planning and execution, launching corporate culture change initiatives, creating organization-wide alignment, implementation of multi-million dollar Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) grants and execution of quality goals and board education.

Bain has also served as Vice President of Quality for a large not-for-profit hospital where she led the senior management team, medical staff and board in developing the strategy and execution of a successful clinical quality program. The hospital became the only one in North Carolina to achieve the 100 Top Performing hospital status for four consecutive years, achieving the top 10 percent in performance on the core measures in the first year. Her role included leading and building the Hospitalist program (20 physicians), the Intensivist program, and Outpatient Disease Management, Case Management and Endoscopy programs.

Bain has served on the boards of NorthEast Medical Center, Advanced Home Care, Hospice of Cabarrus County, NC Community Care Plan, and as a guest lecturer at the collegiate level. She is currently Chairman of the Board for Dream on 3.
