Jason Vincent has been named chairperson of the Baptist Health Deaconess Madisonville Administrative Board of Directors. Vincent will serve a one-year term, which began Jan. 1, 2022, providing leadership to the hospital’s efforts in caring for our region.
“We are honored to have Jason serving as chairperson of our board of directors,” said Robert Ramey, Baptist Health Deaconess Madisonville president. “His leadership abilities and prior tenure with our organization will be an asset as we continue to work to improve the health of our community.”
Vincent is the Executive Director of the Pennyrile Area Development District (PADD) located in Hopkinsville, Kentucky. PADD, a nine-county planning and development agency, provides services in the areas of Community and Economic Development, Workforce Development, and Aging programs. He has been a member of the hospital’s Board of Directors since 2015 and serves on various other boards, councils, and committees throughout the region.
“The team at Baptist Health Deaconess Madisonville is committed to providing safe, quality care in a faith-based environment,” Vincent said. “My experience from serving on the Board of Directors has been important for me as we continue to grow the services that we are able to provide in our rural community.”
“The events of the past two years have revealed to us that we are very lucky to have the caliber of medical services that we do here. It has made me realize the importance of local healthcare to my community and my own family. I look forward to my new role as chairperson and the impact that we, as a board, can make,” added Vincent.
Vincent takes the Board Chair position over from Janet Berry, CPA who has served as Chair since 2020. Berry joined the hospital’s board in 2013 and has been an integral part of the transition to Baptist Health and through the joint venture as the hospital has become Baptist Health Deaconess Madisonville. She plans to continue to be a part of the organization by serving on various committees.
“I have enjoyed my time as Board Chair with Baptist Health Deaconess Madisonville,” Berry said. “Our local hospital is one of our greatest assets and I am proud of the work we have achieved so far to ensure that our community has the healthcare facility that we need to care for our families now and into the future. I am confident in Jason’s leadership as we continue to adapt to the changing healthcare environment,” added Berry.
