Harlem United Appoints Jacquelyn Kilmer Chief Operating Officer

Leading Community-Based Health Care Organization Appoints Key Executive

April 29, 2014

New York, NY -- Harlem United Community AIDS Center is pleased to announce the appointment of Jacquelyn Kilmer as the organization's Chief Operating Officer. Ms. Kilmer comes to the role with over 10 years of experience serving the population living with HIV/AIDS. Ms. Kilmer has been with Harlem United since 2010, serving as the agency's Associate Vice President for Compliance and Legal Affairs and, most recently, as Chief Administrative/Compliance Officer.

"At Harlem United we work tirelessly and passionately to continue to deliver top-notch services to our community. Jacqui has a breadth of expertise and a unique skill set that make her one of the most accomplished professionals in the field," said Steven Bussey, CEO of Harlem United. Ms. Kilmer joined Harlem United after returning to New York from Denver, where she was a partner in a regional law firm and provided pro bono legal representation for a coalition of AIDS service organizations and for the Colorado AIDS Project, where she also served as a member of the Board of Directors. Ms. Kilmer holds a JD from the University of Denver, Sturm College of Law and an MA in Public Administration from the State University of New York at Stony Brook.

Ms. Kilmer's previous portfolio as Chief Administrative/Compliance Officer included the Legal and Compliance Department, Human Resources, Credentialing, Billing, and the development of a new Managed Care Department. Ms. Kilmer has also overseen the development of our 133rd Street health care facility, set to open for business this summer. The facility aims to integrate a multidisciplinary team of physicians, dentists, and mental health professionals who will continue Harlem United's great tradition of serving the people of Harlem.

"I couldn't be more thrilled," said Ms. Kilmer. "I look forward to this new opportunity to work closely with our staff to tackle the most important issues that impact our clients' daily lives."

Jacquelyn Kilmer is succeeding Kelsey Louie, who has been appointed as CEO of GMHC. "Although we will miss Kelsey, we know his skills and energy will continue to make a positive impact in this new role," said Mr. Bussey.
