Ms. Ramirez has over 15 years’ executive management experience and accomplishments in the behavioral healthcare field with a track record of success in operations, leadership, and strategic planning. She has a history of proven success in creating solutions for the current demands placed on the healthcare industry to improve access to care and population health, and reduce cost. Karla's passion for effective programs focused on getting people the right care at the right time at the right place can be traced back to her role as Vice President of Restoration Services at The Center for Health Care Services, the local mental health authority for Bexar County. Under the leadership of President/CEO Leon Evans, she provided the vision and leadership necessary to design, build and relocate all addiction treatment programs, crisis programs, ER and Jail Diversion programs and primary care integration projects in one location, which is now known as the Restoration Center. These programs are consistently visited by thought leaders throughout the Country and are a model of care in the diversion space. In her prior roles in the private sector as Chief Operating Officer at Laurel Ridge Treatment Center, a subsidiary of UHS, Inc. and Market Director of Behavioral Health for BHS/Tenet Health, she developed the skills necessary for sustainability and operational excellence through the development of third party payor programs, seamless transitions-in-care, and centers of excellence for active-duty service members of the US Military. These experiences have led her to Be Well Texas at UT Health San Antonio to create equitable access to low-barrier, evidence-based substance use care to all Texans who need it, with funding from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC).
