Caron Treatment Centers appoints new Chief Operating Officer

WERNERSVILLE — Caron Treatment Centers has appointed Kristine Bashore as its new Chief Operating Officer. In her new role, Bashore will lead the day-to-day operations at Caron, an internationally recognized nonprofit dedicated to addiction and behavioral healthcare treatment, research, prevention, and addiction medicine education.

Bashore, who has been with the organization for more than 20 years, will also continue to oversee the alignment of the organization’s resources with its new three-year strategic plan. This position formalizes the role Bashore has played for more than a year —managing the day-to-day operational functions of Caron, revitalizing and reinvigorating human resources and training team, according to a press release. She will also manage the launch of The Keele Center, Caron’s state-of-the-art medical center expected to open in South Florida in early 2023.

“Kris is a remarkable leader who is always one step ahead,” Brad Sorte, Caron’s president and CEO, said in a statement. “She was integral to the development of our new strategic plan that we are about to embark on. Her understanding of the organization’s clinical excellence, its values-driven mission and its culture of inclusion is exactly what we need to take Caron to the next level.”

Bashore said that in her role as Caron’s Chief Operating Officer, she will “prioritize engaging and providing growth opportunities for employees, producing excellent outcomes and standards, access to treatment through value-based insurance contracts, investing in innovative research, expanding Caron’s reach into more underserved communities, and fostering diversity, inclusion, and cultural sensitivity,” according to the release.

“I’m excited to officially take on this strategic position at this critical time in the history our organization,” Bashore said in a statement. “I see my role as empowering Caron’s amazing teams so they can focus on transforming the lives of individuals and families.”

She is responsible for the oversight of Caron’s facilities, human resources, training, quality, compliance, risk management, admissions, regional services, business development, marketing and communications. She previously held the roles of chief human resource officer, chief marketing officer and, most recently, chief administrative officer.

During her tenure at Caron, Bashore has been engaged in expanding services for patients and families on Caron’s campuses as well as regional locations across Caron’s continuum of services. Additionally, she led the expansion from 265 staff members to more than 750 employees.

Prior to joining Caron, Bashore held human resources senior management positions with a pharmaceutical company and a regional financial institution. She holds a senior certified professional human resource certification from The Society of Human Resource Management and a bachelor’s degree from East Stroudsburg University.

Headquartered in Wernersville, Caron Treatment Centers provides a continuum of care for teens, young adults, women, men, and older adults. In addition to the Pennsylvania campus, Caron provides services in Palm Beach County, Fla., Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Atlanta, and New York City.
