MIAMI — Integris Miami Hospital President Jordan Cash has been named president of Integris Southwest Medical Center in Oklahoma City and will begin his new position on Jan. 3, 2017.

Cash came to Miami’s hospital in January 2014, and since that time has led the hospital through significant operational and clinical excellence improvements, facilitated a successful renaming of the 97-year-old facility and has overseen significant investment in capital and construction projects at the facility.

“Jordan’s energy and enthusiasm for Miami’s hospital and our community will be missed,” said Integris Miami Hospital board president Sue Sly. “He recognizes the importance of quality, close-to-home health care. He has been a tireless supporter of our physicians, and he has actively embraced and led efforts to help make more health care services available locally.

“The Miami Board is very proud of Jordan's achievements and we know he will be very successful at Integris Southwest.”

Integris Southwest Medical Center is a 389-bed, high-acuity hospital with one of the busiest emergency departments in the state. It offers one of the most comprehensive continuums of care in the region, including cardiology and oncology services as well as the state’s premier rehabilitation facility on its campus.

“This is a tremendous opportunity for me and my family, although I will miss my colleagues, team members and physicians, and the wonderful, welcoming people here in Miami," Cash said.

Cash’s children were born in Miami and it will always be their hometown, he said.

He said he appreciates the opportunity to continue his career with Integris, Oklahoma’s largest, locally owned, not-for-profit health care system, and that he looks forward to his new opportunity as leader of a large, urban medical center.

Cash earned his Bachelor of Science in business administration from Oklahoma State University and a Masters of Health Administration from the University of Oklahoma. He is a fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives.

He joined Integris in 2008 as assistant vice president of Integris Grove Hospital, then moved to Enid as assistant vice president of operations and physician practice management before being named president of Integris Miami Hospital.

The search for a new president will begin immediately.

In the interim, Tim Bowen, president of nearby Integris Grove Hospital, will serve at the administrative leader at the Miami hospital facility.
