Jim Cunningham, Eleanor Health Operations Manager in Washington

Jim Cunningham, Washington Operations Manager

My name is Jim Cunningham and I am excited to join Eleanor Health as Washington State’s Operations Director. I have a broad array of leadership experiences in healthcare domains including acute care, primary care, multi-specialty care, academic medicine, and third-party health plans. Most recently, I led the primary care network for Swedish Health Services in Seattle, and prior to that led a five-year strategic planning effort at the University of Pennsylvania Health System.

I was attracted to Eleanor Health because of their genuine commitment to a mission of importance in all of our communities, the struggles that come with addiction. The work we will be doing in the state of Washington couldn’t be more meaningful, nor important, and I’m honored to be a part of launching these services across the state.

I’m excited to introduce you to the rest of our Eleanor Health Lakewood clinical care team!

Hi! My name is Hayley Smith and I am serving as the Clinic Operations Manager for Eleanor Health’s Washington market.  I have worked within the behavioral health field for over 13 years and several years experience working within opioid treatment programs as a clinician and director.  I am passionate about providing equitable, accessible services to all and I strongly value being able to provide support to member-facing team members.  When I am not working, I enjoy traveling and exploring, both near and far, running and being active, and spending time with my family and friends.


Susan, a Behavioral Health Therapist for Eleanor Health's mental health and addiction treatment center in Lakewood, Washington

Susan Poznyansky, LICSW

Hello! My name is Susan Poznyansky. I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker. I started my career as the founder and director of an early childhood program in Portland, Ore., focusing on social-emotional learning. Later, I realized my passion for social work in Seattle working with mothers in recovery from substance use disorders. After graduate school, I worked as a clinical counselor in a residential substance use recovery program in Manhattan, and then as a psychotherapist at a Brooklyn community mental health clinic serving individuals and their families with managing mild-severe mental health diagnoses, suicide risk, life-stage transitions, grief, and other life stressors. I am deeply grateful for the clinical training I received in New York.  For funzies, I enjoy swimming, fishing, hiking, kayaking, Tai Chi, foraging and gardening. I’m also a big fan of Marvel movies.
