Welcome AMM Founder Sean Harrison as Alliance’s New Executive Director
After co-founding Alliance Medical Ministry and serving as an active member of the Board of Directors, including as chair from 2000-2005 and 2007-2009, Sean Harrison was appointed Executive Director this past February. Sean has a diverse background with over 15 years of management experience in entrepreneurial start-ups and Fortune 500 organizations.
Sean’s passion for health care and the working uninsured began nearly 10 years ago when he and three members from Cary First United Methodist Church envisioned a ministry to fill the health care gap faced by the working uninsured. Sean, along with Dr. Charles Mann, Jack Stone and David Wilson, worked earnestly with many volunteers and early staff, including Dr. Susan Weaver, to make their dream a reality.
Sean graduated with a BS in Computer Science from the University of Maryland and relocated to Raleigh with IBM. After earning his MBA from Duke, Sean founded and was CEO of Netstation, which was acquired by Nortel Networks. Later he started WindWire, a wireless software & service company, acquired in 2003. In 2004-2005 Sean piloted a prepaid low cost health benefit program for uninsured workers. Prior to his appointment at Alliance, he was COO of Brightdoor, a real estate software & services company.
Sean and his wife Karen have 3 children ages 6-12. They are all active members of Cary First United Methodist Church.
The average cost of a primary care visit at Alliance Medical Ministry is $98. Each patient contributes to their care with a sliding scale fee, normally $15 or $20, based on their household income. Individuals, corporations, foundations, congregations and our three area hospitals (Duke Raleigh, Rex Healthcare, and WakeMed) make up the difference.
Thank you for considering to contribute to Alliance Medical Ministry!
