Josh Jones, MD, Selected as Chief Physician Office of Olympic Medical Physicians

July 22, 2016 -

Josh Jones, MDPORT ANGELES – Josh Jones, MD, will join Olympic Medical Center’s physician division as Chief Physician Officer starting in September. Dr. Jones, a board-certified general and forensic psychiatrist, is a well-established physician in Clallam County, and comes to Olympic Medical Physicians after six years as medical director at Peninsula Behavioral Health.

"Dr. Jones has excellent credentials as a doctor and administrator, making him well-qualified to lead our multispecialty medical group practice,” says Bill Kintner, primary care physician and chair of the OMP Physicians’ Council that joined in the process of selecting Dr. Jones from the pool of strong candidates. "We know he will work well with other OMP physicians and advanced practice clinicians, as well as the clinical, administrative and support staff that round out our physician division.”

Dr. Jones has familiarity and experience working directly with Olympic Medical Center in a variety of settings, including as an inpatient psychiatric consultant. Further, his expertise in managing physicians and advance practice clinicians in a regulation-heavy environment, while promoting provider job satisfaction, is critical.

"I am very excited to be fully joining the OMC and OMP team, after having been an ancillary member for the past few years,” says Dr. Jones. OMP is providing incredible care to our friends and neighbors in the community, and I look forward to helping support the physicians, advanced practice clinicians, nurses and staff in continuing this success and growing our reach in the future.”

As Washington State works to fully integrate the financing and delivery of physical health, mental health and chemical dependency services, Dr. Jones will help manage these changes as well as help position OMP for this new model.

"We are pleased to have Dr. Jones join our leadership team. He is an exceptional psychiatrist, but is also extensively involved in our community,” says Eric Lewis, chief executive officer, Olympic Medical Center.

Dr. Jones commitment to the community is enduring, as he is seen often volunteering for events such as the North Olympic Discovery Marathon. He is also a publicly elected member of the Port Angeles School Board.

Dr. Jones completed his fellowship in forensic psychiatry at the University of Rochester in New York, his residency in general psychiatry at Fletcher Allen Health Care at the University of Vermont, and obtained his medical degree from the University of Washington.

As chief physician officer of Olympic Medical Physicians, Dr. Jones oversees the employed physicians and other clinic providers, as well as the operations of the division. The chief physician officer is deeply involved in recruitment and retention of providers and the identification and development of new clinical services. He is a member of the Olympic Medical Center executive team.

Olympic Medical Physicians employs more than 80 physicians and advanced practice clinicians and operates 11 primary care and specialty clinics throughout Port Angeles and Sequim.
