ML Healthcare welcomes Alexie McIntyre as the regional director of Client Development to the team of marketing experts covering the Southeast region. Ms. McIntyre will advise physicians, attorneys, and legal teams on how to better serve their clients using medical funding.

ML Healthcare is a medical funding company that addresses the critical gap that occurs when an injury victim does not have sufficient access to healthcare. ML Healthcare gives injured clients access to a network of skilled, carefully screened health care providers so they can receive treatment right away instead of waiting on their settlements. Likewise, ML Healthcare makes it possible for these health care providers to treat more patients that ordinarily could not afford their medical services.

“We are increasingly focused on expanding to several territories in the southeast region,” said Trey Carnes, vice president and in-house counsel at ML Healthcare. “With the region’s strong healthcare and legal communities, along with Alexie’s understanding and experience in collaborating with them, we’re excited to expand our resources as we continue to provide quality care for our patients.”

Ms. McIntyre joins ML Healthcare with experience as a full-service marketer and a legal marketer who has extensive orthopedic training. Prior to joining ML Healthcare, Ms. McIntyre worked for Southside Creative as a project manager for the agency’s portfolio of clients. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Business Management from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Ms. McIntyre also serves on the board for several nonprofits in the Chattanooga area.
