Chief Executive Officer (CEO)
I am Tim Powers and I am blessed to be the CEO of North Canyon Medical Center. My professional background has primarily been comprised of accounting and finance positions influenced by being a CPA. I did the basic tour of duty, first with a Big Eight accounting firm and progressively proceeded through an inventory of healthcare IT companies as well as physician practice management groups. Six years ago I began my work at NCMC as the Chief Financial Officer, during a particularly difficult time for the hospital, and in 2014 I was named the CEO. Until I came to NCMC, I had yet to witness an organization with a deep seated passion for its employees and the community. The sense of loyalty in this area is remarkable and I am honored to be a part of it.

Chief Financial Officer (CFO)
A self-proclaimed Excel nerd, I have been crunching numbers for North Canyon Medical Center since 2010. My role at the hospital is to establish and maintain appropriate accounting and financial reporting systems, as well as implement internal controls. I also oversee the annual audit process, as well as the preparation of the fiscal budget. Some people might call me crazy, but I love what I do and take pride in presenting a nice, clean set of audited financials every year. Although my closest work companion is my trusty laptop, I enjoy being a part of an organization that simply wants to help the people in the community. I earned a Bachelor of Accountancy degree and a Bachelor of Business Administration – Information Management degree from the University of North Dakota and a Masters of Business Administration degree from Boise State University.
Chief Nursing Officer (CNO)
As a graduate of Ricks College Nursing program (BYU Idaho) I have worked in many areas of nursing including medical/surgical, home health and all perioperative areas. I have fifteen plus years of management in the Operating Room, Outpatient Services and Clinics and was honored to be voted Manager of the Year in 2011 at South Peninsula Hospital in Alaska. Throughout my career, I have traveled the United States working in large metropolitan hospitals and small community hospitals. I enjoy the family feel of smaller hospitals and am excited to be a part of the growth at NCMC.
It is inspiring to come to work each day for an organization that exemplifies the same core values that I am passionate about; teamwork, compassion, and excellence. I am a firm believer that humor can be infused into my daily duties to alleviate some of the stress associated with healthcare and I strive to find ways to create an effective and pleasant atmosphere.
When I am not busy at work, I love spending time with my husband Brad, our four children and thirteen grandchildren. As a family, we love to golf, go camping and ride horses.
Chief Compliance Officer (CCO)
I have been with NCMC since 2008. My role at the facility is to ensure compliance with all policies, procedures, laws and governing body standards, contract development and review, risk management, and patient employee and safety. Ensuring compliance with all levels of policy help to ensure patients are cared for in a safe and loving environment and their needs are met both clinically and fiscally. My love of continuing education and health care have led me to my current role. I hold an Associate of Science from the College of Southern Idaho, a Bachelor of Arts, Idaho State University, a Masters of Business Administration, Walden University and am currently in my fourth year of law school pursuing a Juris Doctorate degree. My husband, Steve, and I live in Jerome and have a 6 year old son. We were both born and raised in the area and have experienced big city life while my husband was in the military, but love the Magic Valley and relocated back to the area to raise our family. I love being able to watch the sun rise over the farmer’s fields in morning on the drive to work and know each and every one has a special role in life and mine is helping area residents receive the best health care possible by ensuring the hospital follows rules and regulations designed to promote safe and high quality care.
Executive Assistant to the CEO
NCMC has given me the opportunity to work in a truly caring and progressive environment where I can use my organizational skills to provide support to the Executive Management, the Board of Directors and the Medical Staff. The variety of my work allows me to have an understanding of how important the hospital is to the community and gives me both a sense of belonging and satisfaction that I get to be part of something bigger than just a job. I feel connected to NCMC and am grateful each day that I get to work here.
