MultiCare Rockwood Announces new president

MultiCare Rockwood Clinic has named Keli Ramsey the new president of Rockwood Clinic. This position was previously occupied by Alex Jackson, who was promoted and currently serves as the chief executive for MultiCare’s Inland Northwest Region.

With a health care career that spans more than 30 years, Ramsey has worked as a clinician, administrator, and leader.

Most recently, Ramsey served as the chief operating officer for Covenant Medical Group in Lubbock, Texas. In her role, she supported over 300 primary and specialty care providers and coordinated efforts to improve clinical performance and the overall patient experience.

“What impressed me the most with Keli is her unwavering commitment to caregivers and providers as well as her passion for patients in the community she has served,” said Jackson. “She is a trusted and effective leader who embodies MultiCare’s mission and values. I couldn’t be happier that she is joining my team.”

Ramsey shared Jackson’s enthusiasm for her new role.

“During my time in health care, my journey has been more of a calling than a career,” Ramsey explained. “I’m committed to giving our patients the best experience possible. I’m excited to join the Rockwood team and the high-quality care they deliver to the Inland Northwest.”

In her off time, Ramsey is an avid gardener who enjoys spending time with her family, including the newest member, her first grandchild.
