Leadership changes at HealthPoint Family Care: Chris Goddard to retire; Sally Jordan named CEO


HealthPoint Family Care’s (HealthPoint) Chief Executive Officer, Chris Goddard, has announced his retirement on May 31st. The board has named HealthPoint’s Executive Vice President Sally Jordan to succeed him.

Goddard has served as CEO of HealthPoint since 1999. He will remain involved with the organization serving as a consultant in a part-time capacity for the next year.

Goddard has decided to transition from a 30-year career in healthcare to pursue a second career — teaching high school religion.

Under his leadership, HealthPoint doubled in size, new programs like behavioral health and substance abuse treatment were added, innovative services such as school-based medical & dental services in nontraditional settings were established, and modern facilities were built.

Sally Jordan, HealthPoint’s Executive Vice President, will succeed Goddard.

Jordan has been employed at HealthPoint since 2007 with the exception of a 16-month period when she left to serve as CEO over Professional Radiology, Inc. in Cincinnati. She has previously served as HealthPoint’s Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer.

“I am honored to have been selected by HealthPoint’s Board of Directors to lead the organization. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve our Board and the amazing staff who have made HealthPoint what it is today. Together we will do great things for our patients and the communities in which we operate,” said Jordan.

“Chris constantly looked for opportunities to expand HealthPoint’s mission – whether in new locations or through new or expanded services. He emphasized a culture where patients were treated with dignity and provided a great primary care experience. Sally has been an integral part of HealthPoint’s leadership and has contributed to its success since joining the organization in 2007. Sally has demonstrated the vision and skills necessary to lead HealthPoint into the future. She is passionate about quality and seeking new ways to do things better,” said HealthPoint’s Board Chairman Robert Smith.

“As I wind down my healthcare career and start a new chapter in my life, I would like to express my gratitude to HealthPoint’s board, leadership team, providers, support staff, volunteers and benefactors. I would also like to recognize my wife, Diane, for her support throughout my career. I am excited about HealthPoint’s future as Sally assumes the CEO role in June. She is an exceptional healthcare executive who has greatly contributed to HealthPoint’s achievements,” said Goddard.
