Jackson is retiring after 17 years leading the region's largest healthcare provider. Under his direction the Health System expanded services most in demand by patients, including cardiac care, primary care and orthopaedics. The Health System also grew geographically, establishing primary care and specialty offices in 50 locations, including Prestonsburg, Ky., Jackson, Ohio, and many more. Jones said, "We wish him and his wife Jayme well. His accomplishments and vision have served the Health System very well."
