Published Thursday, June 1, 2017

Indian Stream Health Center in Colebrook has named David J. Amin to the newly created position of chief health officer. “We’re excited to have Dr. Amin aboard to oversee and direct our patient-centered efforts,” says Jonathan Brown, CEO of Indian Stream Health Center.  “We strongly feel this effort will raise the health and wellness bar for those we serve.”

Amin joins Indian Stream Health Center from the Greenville Health System in Greenville, SC, which is part of the University of South Carolina’s School of Medicine.  There he served as vice chair of medical staff affairs and physicians in the Department of Emergency Medicine, managing and leading quality control, peer review and operational process improvements across a seven-hospital system. Prior to that, Amin was the medical director for St. Francis Hospital, which is part of the Bon Secours Health System in Greenville, SC.  Other leadership posts have included: Medical director of community-based initiatives at Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center in Hawthorne, CA and medical director if the Department of Pediatric Medicine at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center in Long Beach, CA.

“The care model at Indian Stream Health Center, along with the skills and expertise of the staff, made this a wonderful destination for me,” says Amin. “Our goal is to continually look for ways to improve the health and well-being of our patients as well as the community at large using an evidenced-based approach. The work will go beyond office visits and extend to a focus on chronic diseases, which take a tremendous toll upon this region, as well as reaching out to local employers to help support a healthy and productive work force.”

 A veteran of the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Air Force Reserve, Amin holds a Doctor of Medicine Degree from the University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine in Los Angeles, CA. He completed the Residency program in Emergency Medicine and a Fellowship in Pediatric Emergency Medicine at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in Torrance, CA.  He is board-certified in Pediatric Emergency Medicine and Emergency Medicine.   

For more than 30 years, Indian Stream Health Center has been providing a broad range of care and services to NH’s North Country and parts of Maine, Vermont and Canada. As a federally qualified health center for the past 10 years, Indian Stream uses the Medical Home concept of care to take care of the whole patient with primary care and behavioral health services provided under one roof.  “In addition to the core health care services, our care managers work to connect our patients to community and social services as well as health and wellness education.  In short, we put the patient and their family in the center of everything we do,” says Brown.  “We also are pleased to collaborate with like-minded organizations across the area to improve the health status of those who live and work in this region.”
