ASHE Advocacy

Speaker: Thurman Douglas Dunlow Jr
Director, Plant Operations and Maintenance

Thurman Douglas Dunlow Jr, an Air Force Veteran and Director of Plant Operations for Clark Memorial Health in Jeffersonville, Indiana has been passionate about healthcare facilities since his first encounter with Joint Commission while stationed at Bitburg AB, Germany. At the time, then Technical Sergeant Dunlow was sent over at the request of the hospital administrator to assist with resolving some “issues”. The issues turned out to be numerous Joint Commission citations that the inspector was offering the Air Force Healthcare Administrator a chance to resolve while he was onsite. It was during this opportunity while in the Air Force that sparked the desire to work in the healthcare industry. After returning to the United States a few years later, and after retiring from the Air Force, Mr. Dunlow was afforded the opportunity to work as a Manager at Kootenai Health in Coeur D’Alene Idaho. This began the journey to ascend to a Director level position by completing my bachelors degree in Healthcare Administration as well as attaining the CHFM certification.
