President and CEO,
Jobe took over as Vizient CEO in April 2018. The group purchasing and consulting company has been a key player in helping the industry respond to the coronavirus pandemic, including holding weekly calls with its hospital members to share best practices. Tapping into data from its members, Vizient also sounded the alarm on price hikes—and potential shortages—of medical-grade exam gloves. Despite the challenges of the pandemic, Jobe led Vizient to strike to deal to acquire Intermountain Healthcare’s purchasing group Intalere.
