Jordan Valley Community Health Center Board names Dr. Matt Stinson as its next President and CEO


SPRINGFIELD, MO – The Jordan Valley Community Health Center (JVCHC) Board of Directors is pleased to announce the selection of Matthew Stinson, M.D., to serve as the organization’s next President and CEO. Dr. Stinson currently serves as Jordan Valley’s Executive Vice President of Primary and Behavioral Health Services and has been part of the staff team for 17 years. He will officially transition into the role of JVCHC’s President and CEO on June 1, 2024.

The Board started a search and hiring process in late 2023 after current President and CEO K. Brooks Miller announced his intention to retire from the position in 2024. Miller helped launch the Federally Qualified Health Clinic more than two decades ago. Under his leadership, Jordan Valley has expanded to include medical, dental, vision and other services in multiple Springfield locations as well as clinics in Hollister, Lebanon, Marshfield and Republic. JVCHC currently employs more than 730 individuals 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,” said Board Chair Mike Schnake. “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.”

Dr. Stinson joined JVCHC in 2007 as a family physician and in 2010 he assumed the role of Medical Director. In 2014, he joined Jordan Valley’s executive team, playing a more strategic role in the expansion of programs such as Express Care, integrated behavioral health and optometry services.

Dr. Stinson is a graduate of Southwest Baptist University and St. Louis University School of Medicine. He is a past president of the Greene County Medical Society and has served as a board member for local nonprofits such as the Child Advocacy Center. At the state level, he recently served on the Prior Authorization Committee for MO HealthNet. Dr. Stinson is an advocate for adoption and passionate about caring for vulnerable children. He and wife Chandra have been married for 28 years and have 11 children, five biological and six adopted. Outside of work, Dr. Stinson stays very busy and active with their seven children currently living at home.

“I am humbled and grateful for this opportunity,” said Dr. Stinson. “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. That work includes projects currently underway such as our upcoming transition to Epic’s electronic health record (EHR) with an expanded patient portal, growing our training resources for medical and dental assistant apprenticeships and opening our Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE).”

“Brooks Miller’s model of servant leadership will be a lasting cornerstone of Jordan Valley’s foundation,” said Board Chair Schnake. “He will always be a leading advocate for improving access and expanding this model of patient-centered care. We are so thankful to him and the entire Jordan Valley team for their unwavering dedication to all those we serve.”
