Avance Care Expands Team with Director of Operations

Triangle Area Primary Care Provider Welcomes Former CVS Health Senior Manager as New Executive Team Member

RALEIGH, N.C., June 11, 2019 – Avance Carean innovative primary care provider based in the Triangle, welcomes Frank Manole as its Director of Operations. In his role, Manole leads Avance Care’s operations, compliance, and strategic initiatives to ensure successful day to day delivery of services provided at all Avance Care locations. Additionally, Manole is focused on stretching Avance Care’s reach and standardizing its operations to increase efficiency while maintaining the personalized care and value that Avance Care provides its patients.

Throughout Manole’s 27-year career, he has amassed experience as a care provider, and in operations at large healthcare systems. His experience enables him to provide a unique perspective on building a successful healthcare system focused on quality care. Prior to joining Avance Care, Manole held positions as a Nurse Practitioner Coordinator in Atlantic Health System as well as WakeMed Health and Hospitals. Most recently, Manole served as a Senior Practice Manager for CVS Health’s MinuteClinic for the North Carolina region. Manole oversaw 40 MinuteClinics and over 100 providers, and he gained valuable insight into the next generation of providing easy, accessible care to North Carolinians.

“Frank’s knowledge and passion for providing quality care combined with his experience in the operations of larger healthcare systems make him an incredible asset to our team,” said Avance Care CEO Manish Patel. “As Avance Care continues to grow, we are very conscious of how we can expand and create standardized methods of practice without diminishing our patient experience. Frank understands this need as we grow, and we look forward to seeing his implementation of our values as we move towards the next generation of Avance Care.”

“It is incredibly important that we address the patient in front of us in the best possible way, but too often, we handcuff ourselves by not thinking about the impact and the responsibility we have of shaping our healthcare system,” said Manole. “Avance Care is actively working to not only provide quality care to paitents, but to also simplfy the healthcare system. While Avance Care is very scalable, we focus on growing in a way that does not inhibit our personalized, transparent, and thoughtful approach to care. I am excited to be a part of something that is creating waves in primary care and is making an impact in both the way care is provided and how our healthcare system operates.”

Founded in 2008, Avance Care has seen steady growth in the Triangle region, including recently opening its 14th location earlier this year.
