Nonprofit and public sector executive search firm KEES has been retained to find the next President & Chief Executive Officer for Siloam Health. Siloam Health is a faith-based, charitably funded nonprofit organization that provides affordable, high-quality, whole-person health care to the uninsured and underserved in Middle Tennessee, health promotion among Nashville’s immigrant and refugee populations, and student education for the next generation of health care providers. KEES President and CEO Heather Eddy and Project Manager Megan Taylor will lead the search following the successful tenure and upcoming departure of the organization’s current leader, Dr. Morgan Wills, as he joins the faculty of the Thomas F. Frist Jr. College of Medicine at Belmont University.

Siloam Health’s Search Committee selected KEES after reviewing and connecting with several nationwide recommendations. “Our search committee was pleased to select KEES as our search partner of choice. KEES was a unanimous choice and we look forward to working with the entire KEES team on this important search,” said Sammye Woods, Chair, Siloam Health Board of Directors.

As a premier executive search firm, KEES specializes in executive searches for top executive positions such as Chief Executive Officer, Executive Director, and President roles and has a successful history of placing accomplished nonprofit executives nationwide. This partnership builds upon KEES’ executive search history and expanding relationships with faith-focused nonprofit organizations, individual Christian healthcare professionals, and clinics across the Christian Community Health Fellowship (CCHF) network. CCHF is a community of Christian healthcare professionals who are committed to living out the gospel through healthcare among the poor and KEES is pleased to continue supporting these important missions. 

“We are honored to have been selected by the Search Committee,” states Heather Eddy. “Our executive search and consulting efforts continually result in successful hires across the country, and with this recent partnership, we will continue driving forward the important missions and ministries of Siloam Health.”
