Jim Sheets has been selected as Intermountain's new chief operating officer of Specialty-based Care. He’ll work with Joe Mott through the end of the year to ensure a smooth transition, at which time Joe will retire.

Sheets has served as an Intermountain leader for more than a decade, most recently as vice president of Outreach Services Development, which includes leading telehealth services and Intermountain’s virtual hospital. He previously worked as operations officer and then administrator at LDS Hospital. Before joining Intermountain, Sheets served in healthcare leadership positions at hospitals and health systems in California and Arizona.

As Sheets moves into his new role, Intermountain will work with leaders in outreach and telehealth to determine the appropriate next steps for leadership in these areas.

Sheets holds Master of Healthcare Administration and MBA degrees from the University of Minnesota and a bachelor’s degree in business management from the University of Utah.
