Kate McEvoy has been hired by UMass Memorial Health Care.

Kate McEvoy, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care's former Central and Western Massachusetts vice president, has been named the vice president of corporate relations at UMass Memorial Health Care in Worcester.

In her new role, McEvoy will be the primary liaison between the healthcare group and major businesses in the region to develop and implement a product strategy to improve UMass' commercial market share.

McEvoy will also support a UMass Memorial mission to leverage corporate social responsibility and outreach efforts to address social determinants of health challenges in the region.

The news comes about three months after Harvard Pilgrim closed its downtown Worcester office, which was headed by McEvoy for seven years.

Before that, she served as senior director of government and community relations at Fallon Community Health Plan in Worcester and sales and marketing director for Summit ElderCare, Fallon's PACE program.

In addition to her career, McEvoy is an active volunteer in Central Mass., serving on the board of directors at the Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce and the Worcester Regional Research Bureau. She's a corporator for the Young Women's Christian Association of Central Mass., the Ecotarium and Greater Worcester Charitable Foundation.
