Coastal Health & Wellness announced Tuesday it named Mary McClure as its executive director.

McClure, a longtime member of the Coastal Health & Wellness management team, was selected for the position by the clinic’s board at its November meeting.

“Mary is a proven leader and her institutional knowledge of Coastal Health & Wellness makes her an outstanding choice for this role,” said Dr. Milton Howard, chair of the clinic’s governing board. “I look forward to the future of Coastal Health & Wellness with Mary as the leader.”

McClure, who served as interim executive director since December 2016, has been with Coastal Health & Wellness and the Galveston County Health District since January 2006.

“I’m honored to be selected for this position,” McClure said. “I very much look forward to contributing to continued strides in Coastal Health & Wellness’ mission of providing high-quality primary care to everyone, regardless of ability to pay.”

As executive director, McClure is responsible for all aspects of operations at both its Texas City and Galveston clinics.
