Keeping Tulare and Kings counties healthy is a “Giant” job, but for Kerry Hydash, it’s also a higher calling she discovered while at College of the Sequoias.
The President and CEO at the nonprofit Family HealthCare Network (FHCN), Hydash helps spearhead the largest primary care organization in the two counties and the third-largest federally qualified health center in the entire nation. Says the CEO, “Our focus is on ensuring everyone has access to health care, with dignity and respect.”
The Giant says her proudest lifetime achievement has been finding a career where she can make a difference in the community she calls home, a journey that started at College of the Sequoias.
“I decided to attend COS because… I wanted the freedom to try different classes and areas of study before determining which four-year college to attend,” recalls the alum. “It was there that I decided I wanted to study economics and accounting with a focus on health care.”
