JASON BARRETT

PRESIDENT & CEO, FLAGLER HEALTH+, ST. AUGUSTINE

Flagler, a community hospital with a 130-year history of serving Northeast Florida, is the oldest self-governing health system in the state. In addition to running the system’s hospital and medical facilities, Barrett has led the formation of a subsidiary — Flagler Health+ Care Connect — to address social determinants of health in a coordinated way throughout all of St. Johns County, aligning resources into a single access point to increase coordination and access for people in need. “We have transformed our organization from a hospital-centric system to a total care enterprise,” he says.

CIVIC COMMITMENT We have partnered with the St. Johns County School District to address youth behavioral health in our region, which has double the youth suicide rate in the state. Our program brings care navigators, telehealth services and a crisis text line to schools throughout the district.
