Jade East, COO of Vista Community Clinic, is a proven health care leader with over 15 years of operational and service delivery experience. Working within Community Health Centers since 2006, he has served in many operational and senior leadership roles throughout Washington, Oregon, California, and Idaho.
As a teen, he received a majority of his healthcare services through community health centers throughout the Yakima Valley in Washington State. Impressed with the care and compassion provided by providers and staff, he eventually returned to lead the very same clinic he was a patient at and even had the opportunity to give his pediatrician his retirement party.
He enjoys building highly effective teams as well as quickly developing positive accountable relationships with all individuals and groups to include patients, clinicians, staff, and community partners.
Through transformational leadership, project and change management, he’s led teams to achieve patient experience and health outcome improvements utilizing staff development, operational enhancements and efficiencies.
Jade earned an MBA with a Healthcare emphasis from George Washington University.
