The Scripps Health Board of Trustees elected former FBI special agent Jan Caldwell to be the board’s chair, it was announced Monday.
Caldwell has sat on the board since 2012, according to Scripps. She retired from the FBI in 2006 after a 32-year career that included participation in the investigations of the 9/11 terrorist attack on the Pentagon, the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City and the Columbine High School shooting.
“Ms. Caldwell is a highly accomplished problem solver and strategic thinker, with experience that spans some of our nation’s most challenging episodes,” said Scripps Health President and CEO Chris Van Gorder. “She brings a unique blend of expertise and compassion that will be tremendous assets as Scripps moves forward during a time of great change in health care.”
From 2006 to 2016, Caldwell worked as the media relations director for the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department. Since then, she has worked part- time for the department in community relations. Caldwell currently sits on the boards of directors for San Diego County Crime Stoppers and the San Diego Rescue Mission.
