JASON BARRETT

PRESIDENT & CEO, FLAGLER HEALTH+, ST. AUGUSTINE

Flagler, historically known as a community hospital with a 130-year history of serving Northeast Florida, is the oldest self-governing health system in the state. Barrett runs the system’s hospital and medical facilities and has led the formation of a subsidiary — Flagler Health+ Care Connect — to address social determinants of health throughout all of St. Johns County. Barrett says the system transforms what was once a hospital stay into a 365-day-a-year relationship. He has been an executive at Flagler for 18 years.

EDUCATION Texas Tech University (MS), University of North Florida (MBA)
PROFESSIONAL EVOLUTION I have learned that the value of the relationship supersedes short-term initiatives. There is deep value in authenticity.
WORRIES ABOUT The commoditization of health care and the shifting focus away from community-based care
SABBATICAL TOPIC The opportunity to deeply study and view the battlefields of WWI
