Jun 14, 2024News

Delta, CO (June 14, 2024) – Delta Health is excited to announce that Jonathan Cohee will be stepping into the role of Chief Executive Officer (CEO) starting July 8, 2024. Cohee has served as Delta Health’s Chief Operating Officer (COO) since November 2023, bringing with him a distinguished 27-year background in the healthcare industry. His strategic vision and operational expertise have already made a significant impact, enhancing service access and operational efficiency.

“Jonathan’s expertise, passion, and dedication will undoubtedly strengthen our team and enhance the quality of care we provide to our community,” said Julie Huffman, Interim Chief Executive Officer and Chief Legal Officer. “We are incredibly fortunate to have him take on the role of CEO at Delta Health. His commitment to improving patient access and streamlining operations has already made a profound difference in our organization. Jonathan’s vision and innovative approach make him the ideal leader to guide us into the future.”

Jonathan Cohee holds a Master’s degree in Healthcare Administration and a Bachelor’s in Occupational Therapy. Prior to joining Delta Health, he served as President and Chief Operating Officer for a national outpatient therapy provider network and a managed care physical therapy carve-out program. His extensive background includes optimizing the operations of nine hospitals across multiple states, spearheading bundled payment initiatives, and establishing and expanding ten hospital rehabilitation programs, outpatient clinics, a wound care clinic, a home health care company, and a hospice program.

“As the newly appointed CEO of Delta Health, I am thrilled to become a part of this exceptional healthcare organization,” said Cohee. “Delta Health has a strong reputation for delivering high-quality care, and joining this esteemed team is truly a privilege. I am excited to contribute to the continued growth and success of Delta Health, as we strive to provide excellent patient care, foster innovation, and enhance the overall well-being of our community.”

Jonathan and his wife Stefanie, have relocated to the Western Slope after spending the last ten years in Chicago. Stefanie is currently pursuing her certification as a Nurse Practitioner. Together, they have built a beautiful blended family of four children and two grandchildren, and their household includes an adorable miniature schnauzer named Addison. Jonathan and Stefanie enjoy activities such as running, biking, skiing, pickleball, tennis, and golf.

“I promised to serve as CEO until we found a person who embodies our values, believes in our goals, and cares about our people. I believe we have found that person,” said Huffman. “Jon will be the first to tell you that the Admin Team and I have not held back. We have put him through his paces these past six months and ‘kicked his tires,’ so to speak. We have had some brutally honest conversations and we have watched him carefully – how he handles conflict, how he leads his teams, how he motivates and celebrates, how he practices what he preaches, how he makes difficult decisions and has difficult conversations, how he understands the healthcare landscape, how he uses that knowledge to strategize to our advantage, and most importantly – how he cares about this place and our people. We believe without hesitation that he is the right person to lead our hospital system forward, and our Board of Directors agrees.”

Cohee’s extensive experience in healthcare management and his passion for patient-centered care position him well to lead Delta Health through its next chapter of growth and innovation.

“I am honored and excited to take on the role of CEO at Delta Health,” said Cohee. “We have an incredible team dedicated to providing the best possible care to our patients, and I look forward to continuing our work to enhance service access and improve health outcomes for our community.”
