AUSTIN – CommUnityCare, the second largest community health center system in Texas made of up 28 primary care, behavioral health, and dental clinics, today named Abayomi “Yomi” Fabiyi as the Vice President of Human Resources and member of its executive leadership team. Fabiyi brings more than 15 years of experience in H.R. management.
“CommUnityCare’s continued success is a direct result of our dedicated staff,” said Jaeson Fournier, CEO and president of CommUnityCare. “As we are acutely aware, engaging, retaining, and finding people has become more challenging than ever in healthcare, but Mr. Fabiyi is the right person to help us navigate an ever-evolving landscape at a time of significant growth for CommUnityCare. His wealth of experience in healthcare leadership and organizational culture in both hospital and community settings– and his deep commitment to diversity and inclusion—will benefit our more than 1,200 employees.”
Fabiyi will oversee daily human resource operations across CommUnityCare’s 28 health centers in Central Texas and manage onboarding and staffing at new clinics opening in 2023.
Most recently, Fabiyi served as the Director of Human Resources at UNLV Health in Las Vegas, Nevada. He has held senior roles at Providence Health System in Washington, D.C. (a member of Ascension Health System), Desert Springs Hospital Medical Center (a member of Universal Health Services, Inc.), North Vista Hospital (a member of Prime Healthcare) and Western Arizona Regional Medical Center, a member of Community Health Systems. He also worked for ESPN as a Senior Diversity Specialist at its corporate headquarters in Bristol, Connecticut.
“We all believe equity to be a central part of our healthcare mission,” said Jeannie Virden, Chief Human Resources Officer at Central Health, which provides HR support for CommUnityCare as an affiliated member of the Central Health enterprise. “Equity applies not just to patients but to our workforce—something I know Fabiyi feels strongly about. I am thrilled he is joining our partners at CommUnityCare.”
CommUnityCare served over 129,000 unique patients visits in 2022 and is scheduled to open new locations this year in East Austin, Pflugerville, Del Valle, and Hornsby Bend with support from Central Health, Travis County’s local healthcare district.
Fabiyi attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison where he majored in Agricultural Business Management and Ashford University where he received a bachelor’s in Organizational Management.
“I’m extremely honored and excited to join the CommUnityCare team,” said Fabiyi. “I look forward to making sure we not only find the best talent out there, but also continue to create a positive work environment and an inclusive, diverse culture where our dedicated team members can feel engaged and provide excellent care for our patients.”
