Kevin Burton announced as the Administrator of Unity Health-Jacksonville

Jacksonville, Ark., – July 1, 2021 - Kevin Burton announced as the Administrator of Unity Health-Jacksonville. For over 16 years, Kevin Burton has been a steadfast leader in Unity Health’s network as Director of Patient Finacial Services. In 2005, Burton took on his first healthcare role at Unity Health to establish an Internal Audit Department, looking for efficiencies in financial processes.

“Healthcare is not just a career,” Burton said, “It is a mission; we are given the opportunity to help people in their most vulnerable state. We provide world-class care, and a personal touch, a genuine love for the communities we serve.” As of July 1, 2021, Kevin Burton oversees Unity Health-Jacksonville. Unity Health-Jacksonville plans to provide an Emergency Department, Radiology/Imaging Services, Behavioral Health Services, and Observation rooms, with the intent to add more services throughout the first three years. While staffing plans begin, Burton believes “if you hire the right people, and give them the right tools for their job, they will succeed.”

Kevin and his family have called Arkansas home for over 20 years. He obtained his Bachelor of Business Administration from Harding University while pitching and playing infield for the Bison Baseball team. Following his Bachelor’s degree, Burton returned to Harding to receive his Masters's of Business Administration in 2009. “Even in non-clinical positions, like the ones I have held, I know my work impacts the lives of people I see at church, at my kids’ activities, or even the grocery store. I am blessed to work for an organization that gets it.” Kevin and his wife of 26 years, Kelley, are parents to two children; Kamryn (23) and Kyle (19).
