Jason Harris, Vice President of Planning and Development, on being named IHA’s new Chief Operating Officer, effective March 13. Jason’s track record of driving impactful changes in tandem with our physicians and administrative leadership made him a natural choice for the Chief Operating Officer position.
Jason joined IHA in 2012 as a project manager and since this time, has advanced his career and made extraordinary contributions to our team and the services we offer to the more than 500,000 patients we serve.
He is strategic, open, engaging, and humble. He has a strong work ethic and the ability to apply wisdom from across disciplines and industries to help IHA achieve results, even in the most challenging of times.
In Jason’s current position as Vice President of Planning and Development, he partnered with physician and operational leaders in growing our medical group to serve more communities and care for more patients. He directed $100 million in ambulatory investments that brought exceptional physicians and staff, and needed services, to new communities across southeast Michigan.
Jason is passionate about living out our IHA CARES Values and is dedicated to ensuring our culture and traditions remain as we look ahead. He is immensely proud to serve our staff, providers, patients, and communities in this new role.
Jason received his undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan and later returned to get his MBA from the University of Michigan Ross School of Business. He and his wife live in Brighton with their two children. When he’s not spending time with his family, Jason enjoys running, golfing, playing soccer and mountain biking (he’ll see you soon ortho).
