John A. Fairman
John A. Fairman, a native of Cleveland, Mississippi, was appointed Chief Executive Officer of Delta Health Center, Inc. in 2009. With over 35 years of solid managerial experience in community-based primary care delivery, managed care, integrated delivery systems, teaching hospitals and consulting, Mr. Fairman has resolved to make quality healthcare accessible to patients in need. During his five (5) year tenure at DHC, Mr. Fairman has expanded healthcare services and created five (5) additional sites in the impoverished Mississippi Delta. DHC now has facilities in Greenville, Moorhead, Indianola, and Cleveland, MS serving medically underserved counties of Bolivar, Sunflower, and Washington. In 2013, DHC was awarded a five-million dollar grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to construct a new 26,000 square feet, state-of-the-art health care facility in Mound Bayou. The new facility is named in honor of Dr. H. Jack Geiger, a Principal Founder of the Delta Health Center. Despite the declining population in the Mississippi Delta, the number of patients served by DHC continues to grow. These and other accomplishments can be attributed to his demonstrated ability in building and maintaining relationships within communities and other stakeholders, overseeing and improving finances, and his understanding and implementation of strategic operational procedures.
