Myechia Minter-Jordan, MD, MBA is President & CEO of The Dimock Center, a community institution serving Boston's Roxbury, Dorchester, and Jamaica Plain neighborhoods. As the second largest health center in Boston, Dimock is considered a national model of comprehensive health and human services with an emphasis on the integration of clinical and behavioral health practices. Dr. Jordan earned both her undergraduate and medical degrees from Brown University. After graduation, she joined Johns Hopkins as an Attending Physician and Instructor of Medicine at Johns Hopkins Medical Center and subsequently served as Director of Medical Consultation Services at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center.
Coming from a family that stressed the value of giving back, in 2007 Dr. Jordan was inspired to leave a successful career in academic medicine to lead the Dimock Community Health Center. As Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Jordan was a fierce advocate for increasing access to care for some of the city’s most vulnerable residents. Her collaborative approach led to significant partnerships linking Dimock to world-class institutions such as Harvard Medical School, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, and Partners HealthCare. An innovative physician administrator, Dr. Jordan was responsible for the successful transition to the Electronic Medical Record, established Dimock’s first Institutional Review Board to pave the way for research using human subjects, and in 2012 led the effort to secure a $4.9 million federal grant to expand the capacity of Dimock’s health center facility.
Widely respected for her expertise and insight, Dr. Jordan has published articles in medical publications including The New England Journal of Medicine, was recently appointed to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Health Planning Council Advisory Committee, and served as one of seven governor-appointed physician members of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Board of Registration. Dr. Jordan serves on the Advisory Board for the Kraft Center for Community Health at Partners HealthCare and in 2013 was named to the Board of Directors of The Boston Foundation.
