In its monthly June meeting, the J.C. Blair Health System Board of Directors voted to promote chief operating officer Adam Dimm to chief executive officer (CEO), effective July 1, 2017. Current CEO Jason Hawkins and chief financial officer (CFO) Deborah Shughart will continue as consultants for a period of time for special projects, as needed.
“Adam’s promotion is part of a well-thought-out, long-range plan for leadership succession,” said board chair Fred Price. “In the past three years, Dimm has operationalized J.C. Blair’s strategic plan and has engaged with the community. He understands the community’s needs and is ready to lead J.C. Blair into its next chapter as the local leader in healthcare for the region.”
