Jarrod McNaughton, vice president of Marketing and Development at San Joaquin Community Hospital (SJCH) has accepted an offer to join the Kettering Health Network as a corporate vice president. His last day at SJCH will be February 1.
McNaughton joined SJCH in the summer of 2007. His responsibilities included oncology services, marketing, business development, public relations, service excellence, government relations, mission and culture, foundation, pastoral care, retail services, and strategic planning.
During his tenure at SJCH, he was a key part of the executive team which helped make SJCH one of the most successful hospitals in Adventist Health. McNaughton also led the hospital’s new cancer center project, resulting in a four-story, 60,000 square foot world-class facility. Under his leadership, the Marketing Department won over 60 national awards for marketing campaigns.
“Jarrod has been a huge part of the success we’ve enjoyed over the last half-decade at San Joaquin Community Hospital,” said SJCH President and CEO, Robert J. Beehler. “While I’m sad to see him go, I’m confident that he will continue to do amazing work and further the visibility and mission of the Kettering Health Network.
In his new position, McNaughton will oversee marketing, spiritual services, external relations, fundraising, mission, government relations and a variety of other activities for the eight-hospital system. Based in Kettering, Ohio, the Kettering Health Network is a part of a worldwide community of Adventist health care facilities. The system’s first hospital was opened in 1964 by Charles F. Kettering who as a patient at an Adventist hospital in Chicago experienced first hand the impact a faith-based approach can have. For more, visit www.ketteringhealth.org.
