On October 1, 2013, John Amos began his role as YRMC’s new President and CEO. Clifford J. Morgan, MD, FACS, Chairman of the YRMC Board of Trustees, states, “We are exceedingly proud to have John in this role. The Board devoted two years to studying the qualities, characteristics and experience required of a top-quality healthcare system President and CEO. When we matched those variables with John’s background, his extensive screening performance and what we have observed while he served as East Campus COO, it was clear that he was the best candidate. The Board looks forward to an energy-filled and exciting future with John at the helm.”
John began his career at YRMC in 1992 as Director of Physical Rehabilitation Services. His background in occupational therapy and other clinical capacities has given him a wide range of experience working within a clinical scope. He was integral in creating the East Campus hospital in Prescott Valley from the ground up. In this endeavor he demonstrated his extensive skill in managing extraordinary change, while also showing respect for each person with whom he worked.
Dr. Morgan continued by saying, “John’s integrity and commitment to transparency will serve him and YRMC very well as we encounter unprecedented change in healthcare in the next few years. John’s values and his collaborative nature will create the foundation for a very successful future for YRMC. Yes, change is and will be paramount for YRMC and for the healthcare industry in general. We believe John has the courage and the clarity of vision to skillfully guide our organization to provide top quality, compassionate healthcare for our communities.”
Mr. Amos states, “Although this particular role is new for me, I have had the opportunity and the pleasure to establish, grow and develop the East Campus while also maintaining responsibilities on the West Campus. This unique experience of creating a brand new hospital, recruiting and developing staff, and establishing YRMC East as a new community resource was very gratifying. It also gave me many opportunities to develop good relationships throughout our region.”
John completed his undergraduate degree at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado. He then earned a master’s degree in Business from Northern Arizona University. John’s extensive professional experience includes working for a national physical therapy company, but his heart was always connected to YRMC.
John’s 21 years at YRMC has enabled him to get to know the organization and our communities very well. He and his family love the greater Prescott area and look forward to continuing their wonderful relationship with those in our community for many years to come.
