Leadership Additions at BHN

BHN has recently announced two significant leadership changes: Steve Winn, Ph.D., formerly Senior Vice President, has been promoted to Chief Operating Officer – a newly-created position at BHN; and Rose Evans, formerly with the Massachusetts Department of Housing and Community Development, has been named BHN’s new Vice President of Operations.

Winn has been with BHN for over 20 years.  As Senior Vice President, Winn has established strong community and statewide partnerships, helping to establish BHN as a well-regarded and successful behavioral health provider in Massachusetts.

In his new role, Winn will be in charge of BHN programs being developed and prepared to collaborate with the healthcare delivery system as MassHealth transitions to a new Accountable Care Organization model of services.

Winn received a Master’s in Developmental Psychology and a Ph.D. in Clinical and Developmental Psychology, both from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. He went on to complete his fellowship at Yale University’s Child Study Center. After Yale, Winn became a staff psychologist and Assistant Professor at the University of New Mexico Children’s Psychiatric Hospital. Winn has authored a number of publications and presentations encompassing adolescent psychology and development, among other similar topics. Winn is a licensed clinical psychologist in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Evans, a resident of Belchertown, spent the last four years serving as the Deputy Undersecretary for the Massachusetts Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) in Boston, a Department within the Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development (EOHED). Prior to working in state government, Evans spent over 28 years in the social services system where she directed complex, multi-service programs for children, adolescents and families.

Among other various responsibilities, Evans will assume leadership of BHN’s comprehensive array of substance use disorder programs.
