It isn’t often that you have the opportunity to report to a mentor and a coach. I had that opportunity with Jim. I had the pleasure of working with Jim for 9 years. He collaborated and encouraged his management team to propose and develop programs at HGH that elevated customer service and the quality of those services. He has a great grasp on how to guide an organization to success. His strategic vision set HGH up to succeed in the coming years. With health care challenges, Jim is an expert on reading future risks and opportunities. I am fortunate to have worked with Jim.
During the Christmas holiday season my son, who is a hospital employee, was in the hospital in Reno and Mr. Parrish took the time out of his busy schedule to come and check in on us to see how my son was doing. He was reassuring and comforting in a time that was very frightening for our family.
It is a true testimate to Mr. Parrish’s character that he would care enough to come clear to Reno to spend time with us. In my experience I have never known a CEO that cared enough about his employees to travel that distance or take the time to visit an employee in the hospital. Perhaps we saw a side of Mr. Parrish that many others have not had the opportunity to see. He is a good man and he is good for our community.
Jim Parrish is one of those people you can walk across the street with and learn something. He has always exhibited fantastic foresight and innovation. Always with a warm smile on his face, makes you feel important. Great leader with balance and personality. Thanks for your leadership and opportunity.
Jim has the demonstrated ability to lead a hospital toward strong financial and market performance while creating a culture of quality and excellence. His calm demeanor and friendly persona make him someone you want to work with. He’s clearly at the top of his game in running hospitals, with decades of success to back him. In my experience of working with hospital boards around the country, I consider Jim one of the most highly-skilled CEOs in navigating difficult board conversations and effectively supporting continuous governance improvement.
HGH, under Mr. Parrish’s leadership has been a tremendous partner to the schools in Humboldt County. This has been demonstrated through the placement of AED’s in our schools, collaboration with the District on school safety, continual availability for trainings and athletic events, and most recently the partnership for the implementation of an EMT course as part of our Career and Technical Education programs. Mr. Parrish appears to have met the expected target of having a Hospital that is operating in a positive cash flow position. In conjunction with the Hospital board, Mr. Parrish has demonstrated a visionary leadership style by proactive expansion and services for our community ahead of projected growth.
In our professional lives, we meet individuals who we learn from, even if they make no direct attempt to mentor us, Jim is one of those supervisors. He is always steadfast in his convictions and holds his line for what he believes to be right, a trait that is in more and more need in our world today. Jim is a great administrator who I would have no problem working with anytime in the future.
