LANSING, Mich. — The Michigan Primary Care Association (MPCA), the voice for health centers and other community-based providers in Michigan, welcomes Dan Thompson as the new chief operating officer. Thompson will provide operational leadership and help grow new partnerships with other statewide health care leaders. 


“I am excited to return to MPCA and continue the great work we do to help health centers deliver affordable and accessible care to everyone in Michigan,” Thompson said.


Thompson joins MPCA with more than 26 years of health care leadership in both the private and public sectors, including associations, health systems, and direct service providers. He has extensive experience in maximizing operational effectiveness, planning programs, and securing grant funding.


Most recently, Thompson served as business process owner at Jackson National Life where he was responsible for overseeing licensing and appointments for nearly 150,000 insurance brokers in North America. Prior to his tenure at Jackson National Life, Thompson held multiple leadership roles at Prima Civitas, the Michigan Nonprofit Association, and Spectrum Health. He also served as the MPCA’s chief operating officer between 1998 and 2001.


“We know Dan will be a great fit, largely because he was a key player in the organization,” said Loretta V. Bush, chief executive officer, MPCA. “Since then, Dan has only strengthened his portfolio. He’s bringing us experience and knowledge that will help us grow our mission, serve our members, and, ultimately, improve the health of Michigan residents.”


Thompson previously served on the Michigan Nurses Foundation Board of Directors, Grand Valley State University School of Public and Nonprofit Administration Advisory Board, Blue Cross Blue Shield West Michigan Region Community Advisory Council, and the Cherry Health Capital Campaign Cabinet.
