New Board Member January 2018

Dr. Grierson is the Physician Site Director at Providence Medical Group, Marysville Washington, and he is active in the community sitting on several different boards including the Stanwood-Camano YMCA, Western Washington Area Health Education Center and Camano Chapel Administrative Board. Jimmy and his wife Linda—a retired middle school teacher— live on Camano Island with their three children, Hannah, Jonah and Micah.

Dr. Grierson firmly believes in the mission of Providence, its vision, promise, strategic outcome and value and says that “being on the board is an extension of his beliefs.” Besides his family, he is most proud of the establishment and ongoing operation of the Jake Harbor Free Clinic. The clinic has provided more than 10,000 no cost patient visits for acute care, change care, minor office surgery, podiatric, respiration and dental services to date.
