Lakeview Center CEO is Accepted to Leadership Florida

Pensacola, Fla. (August 31, 2017) – Allison Hill, president and CEO of Lakeview Center, Baptist Health Care’s largest affiliate, joins a dynamic group of Northwest Florida residents as a member of the Leadership Florida annual program. Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward; Jim Fletcher, Gulf Power Company; Renee Bookout, Center for Individual Freedom; and Carolyn Fries, Doolittle Institute are among the selections from Northwest Florida to participate in the Leadership Florida Cornerstone XXXVI program.

Leadership Florida is a non-profit organization that comprises a growing community of leaders from around the state who look at conditions and challenges to develop solutions for positive change throughout Florida.

"Our organization is proud that Allison is in a position to participate with this group,” said Mark Faulkner, president and CEO of Baptist Health Care. “Together, the group’s vision and passion for Northwest Florida will improve the quality of life for residents in our community and beyond.”

The opportunity aligns with the Mission of the nonprofit organization Hill leads: “Helping People throughout Life’s Journey.” The issues they work to improve also are issues throughout the state. Lakeview Center is the largest comprehensive social services agency in the Southeast, and serves a diverse community helping people with disabilities find meaningful employment; helping people challenged by addictions and mental illness find a path to recovery; and ensuring the safety of children who have been abused, abandoned and neglected.

"I’m humbled and excited about this opportunity to connect with a diverse, broader community of talented, insightful people," Hill said. "Clearly, the solutions to challenges in our state lie in casting a broad net beyond just this one sector, and I can’t wait to help implement positive change."


An affiliate of Baptist Health Care, Lakeview Center Inc. is a network of behavioral health, vocational and child protective services. These services address a broad spectrum of human needs, reflecting a longstanding commitment to helping people overcome life's challenges.
