Alexander Youth Network congratulates Dr. Rebecca Tomsyck on her retirement!
Rebecca Tomsyck, M.D., began her career as a pediatrician and then went back to school to become a psychiatrist. As a member of Charlotte Psychiatric Associates and Arboretum Behavioral Health, she became a well-regarded and sought out physician. Alexander Youth Network was fortunate to have her agree to become our medical director in the mid-1990s, giving the children we serve access to one of the best psychiatrists in Charlotte.
Dr. Tomsyck worked for Alexander Youth Network for 10 years before retiring from practice and joining the US Army in 2005, where she served for 10 years, being based in Germany and deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. Dr. Tomsyck served as the Officer in Charge of Behavioral Health Clinic at Craig Joint Theater Hospital on Bagram Air Field and Commander of Behavioral Health Assets of both Army and Air Force in eastern Afghanistan, before retiring with the rank of colonel.
Following her retirement from the Army, Dr. Tomsyck rejoined Alexander Youth Network in March of 2016 as our outpatient psychiatrist. There, she started our very successful telepsychiatry service, utilizing the computer skills she acquired during her Army service. While at Alexander, she specialized in inattention, anxiety, mood instability, and psychosis.
“This position, as I have said multiple times before, is simply the best job I have ever had. The military was an absolutely great experience, but Alexander Youth Network has afforded me a certain support, independence, and opportunity that has surpassed any other in my career. I am particularly grateful for the seamless transition from the Army back to practice here in Charlotte,” Dr. Tomsyck said.
“It has been my privilege to have worked with all of the great staff these many years. It is truly bitter sweet to be retiring, but I am ready and it is time.”
Alexander Youth Network will certainly miss Dr. Tomsyck, but we wish her well on all of her future endeavors!
