The Hospital for Behavioral Medicine in Worcester has named Evelyn Alsup as the hospital’s new CEO, marking the hospital’s third CEO in five years.

Prior to transitioning to her role at the Worcester hospital, where she started in January, Alsup served as administrator at North Star Behavioral Health in Alaska, then briefly moved to administrator of Oceans Healthcare in Texas, according to a WBJ interview with Alsup.

In between her time in Alaska and Texas, Alsup worked as CEO of Strategic Behavioral Health in Garner, North Carolina, according to her Facebook profile. That psychiatric facility was shut down by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services after a state investigation deemed Alsup incompetent to run the facility, among other findings, according to a news article by The News & Observer in Raleigh, North Carolina. The government agency cited the institute with violations including unauthorized handcuffing and drugging of a minor and the escape of an adult patient, according to The News & Observer story. The hospital agreed to pay $175,000 in administrative penalties.

Neither Alsup nor the Hospital for Behavioral Medicine responded to WBJ’s request for comment about the North Carolina hospital.

The Hospital for Behavioral Medicine, which opened in 2019, is a 120-bed mental health facility offering inpatient, outpatient, and telehealth services to children and adults.  

Michelle Lynn acted as the hospital’s first CEO before moving on to Westborough Behavioral Healthcare Hospital in 2021, followed by Randall Hines who began the position in early 2022 before leaving the role in January. He is acting CEO of Georgia-based Human Services Consulting Company, which he founded in 1993, according to his LinkedIn profile.

Alsup earned her bachelor's degree from Indiana University Bloomington and master’s degree from Concordia University’s Portland, Oregon, campus.
