Sherly Demosthenes-Atkinson was appointed CEO of CABS Home Attendants Service, Inc., in 2017. Sherly exemplifies CABS’ mission of social equity for all, including quality healthcare services. Prior to her appointment as CEO in 2017, she was the Executive Director from 2013 to 2017. Sherly also served as Associate Director of Case Management from 2006 to 2013, which gave her a great opportunity to absorb and develop much appreciation for not only from the client’s served perspective to the organizational behavior toward service delivery, but also the vision for streamlining and positioning the CABS organization and the CABS Team. As a result, Sherly played a pivotal role in establishing a transformational culture that has led to high performance in the homecare quality service delivery for approximately 1200 clients under multiple contracts. Most notably, and for the first time, under Sherly’s leadership CABS was exposed to diverse market segmentation with various partnerships such as the NYC Health & Hospital Corporation (HHC), Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) to help stratify the agency’s revenue streams. In 2019, CABS acquired a two-year contract with the largest public housing authority in North America, NYC Department of Housing Authority (NYCHA,) as an external community partner to provide home care services to their residents. Sherly is a recipient of the 2019 Caribbean American Healthcare Award from Caribbean Life News for her devotion to Healthcare – and – a recipient of the New York City & State Responsible 100 Awards for Health Care. She continues to build and lead the CABS organization to new heights for success throughout New York City and Nassau County. Sherly lives on Long Island, NY with her husband and their two children. She holds a Master’s degree in Health Administration from Hofstra University.
