Dr. Wolk will succeed Dr. Laura Patel, who informed the Board of Directors earlier this year of her intention to step down from Transitions LifeCare. 


Dr. Adam Wolk brings over a decade of robust leadership experience across health plans, academic and nonprofit settings. Since 2014, he has worked at Alignment Health, most recently as Regional Chief Medical Officer. Dr. Wolk earned his medical degree from the University of California, Davis, and completed his residency in internal medicine at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital. Additionally, he is working towards a Doctor of Public Health Leadership from the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health. Beyond his role at Alignment Health, Dr. Wolk has been a dedicated member of our Board of Directors for six years, serving as Board President for the last one.  


Dr. Wolk’s decades of leadership experience, combined with his dedication to compassionate care, will further strengthen Transitions LifeCare as the trusted provider of end-of-life services in our community. 


I am overjoyed that Dr. Wolk will be joining Transitions LifeCare as the new CEO. We have observed his excellent service and unparalleled commitment to our mission as a Board Member for six years. Our organization is very fortunate to have him, leading us in serving our community for years to come.” said Dr. William ‘Billy’ Dunlap, Founder and current Board Member of Transitions LifeCare.  


Dr. Wolk shared, “I am honored to be chosen as the new Chief Executive Officer of Transitions LifeCare and to continue to build on our strong foundation of compassionate care for patients, families, and communities. Serving on the board, I have grown closer to the mission and have been inspired by the team’s commitment to dignified, person-centered care. I look forward to bringing my passion for patient care and strategic vision to advance Transitions’ impact and success.” 


As we extend a warm welcome to Dr. Adam Wolk into our Transitions LifeCare family in mid-June, we express our gratitude to Dr. Laura Patel for her outstanding leadership and dedication to our organization over the last decade. Under her guidance, Transitions LifeCare has extended excellent care to countless lives in our community. We wish Dr. Patel all the best in her future endeavors. 


Please join us in welcoming Dr. Wolk as we continue to uphold Transitions LifeCare’s mission of providing expert, compassionate care to those in need.
