March 24, 2023 - Rural Health Network of Monroe County (RHNMC) is celebrating 30 years of serving the Florida Keys and welcoming its new chief executive officer, Amy Halstead.
In 2021, after 23 years in Chicago, Halstead made the move to Key West for sunshine and a new career opportunity. With an MBA and more than 30 years’ experience in private industry; healthcare sales, marketing, and executive sales management, Halstead has her sights set on helping more Monroe County residents acquire quality and affordable healthcare.
“I am focused on expanding our services throughout Monroe County, improving our operational & financial efficiencies, and retaining our quality staff while recruiting new team members, when appropriate,” she said.
A key piece to Halstead finding RHNMC was her relationship with an employee;
Dr. Taweh Beysolow, RHNMC’s Chief Medical Officer (CMO). They met at a national medical conference in 2013 and developed a mutually beneficial business relationship, which began her journey to frequent Key West. Each year, she spent more and more time there, eventually leading to her permanent residency.
Established in 1993, RHNMC is a non-profit dental and medical clinic, providing care throughout Monroe County. They currently employ 26 with medical staff including a CMO, and a Dental Director, Dr. Oscar Rodriguez.
Besides their main office at 3706 N. Roosevelt Blvd. in Key West, their mobile unit serves the rest of the Keys with stops in Big Pine, Marathon and Key Largo offering both medical and dental services.
RHN offers care to all members of the community, regardless of their ability to pay. Fees are charged on a sliding scale based on the patient’s income and family size.
