Kavanaugh Chandler, MD, MBA
Born in Jamaica, West Indies, Dr. Kavanaugh Chandler immigrated to New York as a young child and as a preteen moved to the small rural community of Statesboro, Georgia. Over the years, he pursued his lifelong dream of becoming a healthcare leader by pursuing his medical and business degrees. This path enabled Dr. Chandler to develop a healthy balance of understanding the amount of compassion that’s needed in the field of medicine, while balancing the business aspects that are necessary to support the mission of medicine – specifically, rural medicine.
Since 2018, Dr. Chandler has been passionately working with FQHC’s (Federally Qualified Health Centers) and providing quality affordable healthcare to thousands of individuals. He now serves as the CEO of Coastal Community Health, an FQHC in Coastal Georgia with clinics currently in McIntosh County (Eulonia & Shellman Bluff), Glynn County (Brunswick), and Camden County (St. Marys) offering a multitude of services ranging from dental, pharmacy, behavioral health, and primary care.
