Congratulations to Dr. Minter-Jordan

I missed this announcement earlier this summer but am very pleased to repeat it now.

Dr. Myechia Minter-Jordan took over as the new president and CEO of The Dimock Center on July 1. Dimock is a community health center serving the Roxbury section of Boston--the second largest health center in the city--offering a variety of important programs to people in that part of town. 

Myechia served as chief medical officer at the center since 2007.  I had the pleasure of getting to know her and working with her during my tenure as CEO of BIDMC.  She is a spectacular choice for the head of the center.  As the article in the Bay State Banner notes:

The 41-year-old Minter-Jordan is also dedicated to improving the community health-care model. And she wants to make sure The Dimock Center, already a recognized leader in community health care, will continue to lead the way.

“I relish the opportunity to talk … about issues that impact the Latino and black community,” she said. “I think it is important to me to bring the voice of community health centers to that discussion.

“We can’t stop there. We have to keep moving until it is recognized by all that community health centers are really the model … to create a place for patients and family where all their needs are met,” she added.
