People’s Health Clinic names new chief
Judy Sobin has accepted the position of executive director at the People’s Health Clinic in Park City, an announcement from the organization states.
Sobin replaces John Hanrahan, who served as interim executive director since August. Sobin will oversee all administrative, clinical, fundraising and communications activities for the clinic and will guide it through expansion into its new Quinn’s Junction home.
"People’s Health Clinic is a solid organization with a vital mission of providing health care to the nearly 13 percent of our people in Summit and Wasatch counties who have no health insurance. I am looking forward to bringing my leadership and management experience to further strengthen the ability of the clinic to get the job done," Sobin said in the release.
She leaves her position as the Summit County regional director of United Way, having helped many individuals and organizations address serious social issues. Sobin’s efforts have been focused on collaboration, building awareness and fundraising for education, health care, financial stability and basic needs. With patient visits at the clinic up 39 percent and donations and grants hindered by the economy, Sobin’s skills will be put to great use.
"Not only will [Sobin] maintain the progress we have made, but she will assure we keep pushing ourselves to do more and to do it better," said Hanrahan.
Hanrahan, one of the original founders of the clinic, was elected to serve on the Summit County Council in November.
Sobin will oversee three weekly clinics at the People’s Health Clinic’s current location at The Yard on Kearns Boulevard. Her responsibilities also include supervising paid staffers and a contingent of volunteers. For more information on the clinic visit online at http://www.peopleshealthclinic.org.
