The Dimock Center has appointed Dr. Myechia Minter-Jordan, M.D., as its new President and CEO to succeed Ruth Ellen Fitch, who is retiring after nine years at the helm of the renowned community health center.

Dr. Jordan is a graduate of Brown University School of Medicine and Johns Hopkins University Carey School of Business with an MBA in Health Services. Dr. Jordan came to Dimock in 2007 from Johns Hopkins, and served as its Chief Medical Officer to help the medical center increase access for its underserved population.

Through Dr. Jordan’s efforts, Dimock last year received a $4.9 million federal grant to expand and transform the health center facility into a medical home.

“I am humbled and honored to lead Dimock at such a critical, transformative time in American health care policy,” said Dr. Jordan. “We have an opportunity to make unprecedented progress in system reforms, advance access to care and establish community health centers as leaders in the provision of comprehensive care.”

Originally founded in 1862 as the New England Hospital for Women and Children, The Dimock Center is nationally recognized as a model for the integrated delivery of comprehensive health and human services in an urban community.
