Neighborhood Health Clinic welcomes new CEO Jim Warnken

Jim Warnken joined the Neigborhood Health Clinic on October 3, 2011, succeeding Nina Gray, who continues to serve the Neighborhood Health Clinic by transitioning into her new role as Chief Development Officer focusing on donor acquisitions and stewardship, organizing and overseeing majorgift campaigns and grant writing.
Warnken has more than 20 years of healthcare management experience including CFO and CEO roles within the NCH Healthcare System.  He served as CEO of DSI Laboratories from 1995 to 2000 and as Executive Vice President and CFO of NCH Healthcare System from 2000 to 2006.

“I see a bright future for the Neighborhood Health Clinic,” said Warnken. “The organization, through the masterful leadership of Nina Gray and the unwavering support of the founders, Dr. Bill and Nancy Lascheid, has positioned itself throughout the years as an innovative safety-net healthcare provider. The medical staff, volunteers and board members that I have had the opportunity to meet are first class and committed to working together to continue to bring superior medical care to the low income, working, uninsured in the community.”

“As a seasoned executive, Jim brings not only impressive experience, but also a new and energizing vision to Neighborhood Health Clinic,” said Founders, Dr. Bill and Nancy Laschied. “His extensive healthcare background and commitment to the community will be a tremendous asset in the continued expansion of service to the working uninsured.  The fact that the Neighborhood Health Clinic was able to retain the current CEO, Nina Gray, in the critical development role, exponentially increases the organization’s potential moving forward.”

Gray will transition to a newly created position at the Neighborhood Health Clinic which will enable her to continue doing the work about which she is passionate and finds most gratifying.  She will be responsible for donor acquisition and stewardship, organizing and overseeing major gift campaigns and writing grants.

“I feel blessed to have served as the CEO and to have worked with a dedicated and knowledgeable staff aided by over 700 very talented and committed volunteers.  My love and admiration for our founders and the support and guidance I have received from our Board of Directors has made my tenure as CEO the most meaningful, exciting and professionally rewarding experience.  And now I welcome the new challenges, opportunities and assignments that await me,” states Gray.
