Mosaic Medical is pleased to announce the addition of Capt. James C. Gemelas, a Commissioned Officer with the United States Public Health Service, to the board of directors governing our nonprofit community health center organization.
Gemelas has been a resident of Jefferson County since 1993, living in Madras with his wife of 26 years and raising two children. He works for the Indian Health Service as a clinical pharmacist and informaticist at the Warm Springs Health & Wellness Center. Prior to that he served as a staff pharmacist at Fort Defiance Indian Hospital on the Navajo reservation in Arizona, and at the Blackfeet Indian Hospital in Montana.
“As a Commissioned Officer, working in the Indian Health Service system has exposed me to many aspects of healthcare,” said Gemelas. “I feel that my experience will help me to be an active contributor to the Mosaic board.”
Gemelas receives his healthcare at Mosaic Medical, which he feels provides him with another valuable perspective to bring to the board, which is governed by a patient majority.
“We are very happy to welcome Jim to our board of directors,” said Megan Haase, Mosaic Medical CEO. “He brings a wealth of insight and experience to our team, and his understanding of and deep connections to residents of Jefferson County will enhance our ability to meet the needs of the people living in that area.”
In his spare time, Gemelas enjoys staying active and volunteering in the community. Gemelas served as the volunteer coordinator for the Madras Aquatic Center MAC Dash Sprint Triathlon from 2008-2018, helped establish the Relay for Life in Jefferson County, and is an active volunteer at his church.
