President's Message

Juliana Briscoe, MHA, MPH

I feel honored in writing my first message as your Utah Healthcare Executives President. I’ve been involved with Utah Healthcare Executives (UHE) for the past 6 years volunteering with the education committee before moving into the President-Elect role. It has been a rewarding opportunity to serve and meet new leaders. What I have experienced over the years is that UHE’s success is truly a team effort.

Hello members,

I feel honored in writing my first message as your Utah Healthcare Executives President. I’ve been involved with Utah Healthcare Executives (UHE) for the past 6 years volunteering with the education committee before moving into the President-Elect role. It has been a rewarding opportunity to serve and meet new leaders. What I have experienced over the years is that UHE’s success is truly a team effort. We have 12 committees led by incredible leaders across Utah. Our committees range from Networking, Mentorship, Diversity and Inclusion to our newest committee focused on Sponsorship. One of my goals is to increase opportunities for you to learn more about our committees and their leaders throughout the year. I would also invite you to join a committee!

I am excited to announce that we plan to host more in-person events this year. As a member, you should be receiving emails for upcoming education, networking and mentoring events. Please email Jasmine Juarez at uhe.ache@gmail.com if you are not currently on the mailing list. All events will also be posted on https://utahache.org/ . We look forward to seeing and engaging with you!

Lastly, I would like to thank you for your membership. We wouldn’t be UHE without your commitment to furthering your career development in healthcare administration. Please let me know if you have any feedback, ideas, interest in volunteering etc. I am here to listen, learn and help drive UHE forward as we continue to develop the very best healthcare leaders in Utah.

With much gratitude,

Juliana Briscoe

Executive Spotlight

Jim Marshall, MBA

Jim believes in furthering your education outside of your industry as well, as such he has become a private pilot since joining UBH and is currently enrolled in a certificate welding program at the local technical college.  Each industry is unique and different from healthcare but there is much that we can learn in terms of best practices of quality and safety that can be applied to healthcare. 

 Jim Marshall has served as President and CEO of Uintah Basin Healthcare since 2014.  Over the last eight years, Jim has led the mission to improve access to healthcare services and specialties across the Uintah Basin believing that proximity and availability to high quality healthcare service will improve the overall health of our community.  Most recently, Jim has led the addition of a Cancer Care and Infusion Center, Would Care and Hyperbaric Medicine as well as UFitness, a community Fitness and Therapy center.

Prior to his time at UBH, Jim was most recently the President of CHI Mercy Hospital in Devils Lake, ND and formerly the CEO of Sakakawea Medical Center in Hazen, ND. Prior to his time in ND, Jim worked as the Director of Occupational Medicine and Urgent Care Clinics for CHRISTUS Schumpert Health System in Shreveport, LA.

Jim earned a Master of Business Administration degree from Centenary College of Louisiana’s Frost School of Business, and a Bachelor of Science in Business Management degree from Brigham Young University Idaho.  Jim believes in furthering your education outside of your industry as well, as such he has become a private pilot since joining UBH and is currently enrolled in a certificate welding program at the local technical college.  Each industry is unique and different from healthcare but there is much that we can learn in terms of best practices of quality and safety that can be applied to healthcare.

Jim believes that membership in the ACHE has been valuable in helping to stay current in healthcare trends and best practices, and a great resource for peer networking and professional development.  Jim recommends ACHE to many of his organizations’ leaders to help them further their industry knowledge and reach their career goals. 

On a personal note, Jim enjoys spending time with his family, aviation, camping, fly fishing, snowboarding, biking, and welding.

ACHE Congress - UHE Student Member Sponsorship

Rachel Walton
The UHE Education Committee was fortunate to sponsor one of our student members to attend the 2022 ACHE Congress.

Hello! My name is Rachel Walton, I am from Price, Utah and I recently graduated from BYU with my BS in Public Health: Health Promotion. 

This was my first year attending ACHE and it was a wonderful experience! As someone who is just getting into a career in healthcare, this conference provided me with an amazing opportunity to network with extremely bright and successful individuals. Along with networking, I was able to gain new insights and direction on how to navigate this industry as a woman in healthcare and as an early careerist. I am excited to see what the future holds and for the chance to be part of this great community.  

Thank you to UHE for selecting me as a scholarship recipient-- I look forward to attending ACHE Congress in the future!
