Jordan Valley Community Health Center considers leadership change

Posted online

Jordan Valley Community Health Center is mulling a leadership change at the top.

Brooks Miller, the health system's president and CEO since its founding in 2003, said in a July 28 letter to staff that he told the board “it is time for considering new leadership, to bring in a fresh vision for what Jordan Valley can become in the future." The letter was anonymously shared with Springfield Business Journal and was posted at

Jordan Valley officials confirmed the authenticity of the letter but declined to comment further.

The letter indicates the board has hired Terence Bostic, managing partner at St. Louis-based leadership development consultancy CMA Global Inc., to "work with the board to define the attributes the next CEO should have to be successful at Jordan Valley."

"The field of candidates will be large, and I have the fullest confidence that they will perform due diligence in selecting the next leader of the program," Brooks said in the letter. "As for myself, I have expressed a desire to the board in continuing to serve in whatever role may be beneficial in helping to move Jordan Valley forward."

No timeline was provided in the letter for the leadership transition.

Miller, a lifelong Missourian, is among businesspeople who helped open the federally qualified health center, according to past reporting. Nearly 96% of the health system's patients last year had an income below 200% of the federal poverty level, which is $60,000 a year for a family of four.

The health system recently has been in growth mode.

Jordan Valley Community Health Center in January opened its new $12 million Roy Blunt Center for Family Health and Wellness at a former Price Cutter at Grand Street and Kansas Expressway. April brought the opening of a new clinic in Republic, according to past reporting.

Jordan Valley Community Health Center last month was recognized in SBJ's Economic Impact Awards with top honors in the 11-20 years in business category. The organization reported 2022 revenue of $73.7 million and 677 employees.
