Jordan Valley Community Health Center has appointed a new CEO as its founding leader prepares to retire.

Dr. Matthew Stinson, who is currently JVCHC’s executive vice president of primary and behavioral health services, is transitioning into the president and CEO role on June 1, according to a news release. He'll succeed Brooks Miller, the health system's president and CEO since its founding in 2003.

“I am humbled and grateful for this opportunity,” Stinson said in the release. “It will be a privilege to lead this highly skilled team of professionals that share such a deeply rooted commitment to Jordan Valley’s mission – improving access to health care and providing it with excellence and compassion. Our strength comes from remaining focused on innovating to serve our patients at the highest level."

Stinson joined JVCHC in 2007 as a family physician, became medical director in 2010 and joined the organization's executive team in 2014.

The JVCHC board selected Stinson through a search process that started in late 2023, according to the release.

Miller is slated to retire this year. Under his leadership, the federally qualified health clinic has expanded to include medical, dental and vision services. The organization has more than 730 employees across the region.

“As we started the search process, board members took the time to seek counsel from peers that have experienced a similar transition with the retirement of a founding leader,” board Chair Mike Schnake said in the release. “Those intentional efforts shaped a process and hiring plan aligned with our desire for a strong and seamless leadership transition that preserves our culture, prioritizes service to our patients and positions Jordan Valley for continued success. We have absolute confidence in Dr. Stinson’s ability to achieve that mission and vision.”
