SACRAMENTO, Calif.- The Hospital Council of Northern and Central California announces Brian Jensen has joined the organization as Regional Vice President for its Sacramento-Sierra, Stanislaus-Merced, and San Joaquin-Mother Lode sections. Jensen is replacing Scott Seamons, who will retire at the end of this month after close to 40 years of leadership positions in the healthcare field, including eight years with the Hospital Council. Seamons will work with Jensen to help him transition into the position.
“I am very excited to serve in such a dynamic and important field as healthcare,” says Jensen. “Advocating with local governments to ensure that dedicated hospital personnel are able to effectively offer care in the community they serve is a worthwhile cause that I am fully committed to.”

He was previously Government Relations Consultant for Pacific Gas and Electric’s Sacramento and Sierra divisions. Prior to that, he was District Director in the District Office of House Republican Conference Secretary John T. Doolittle (R-Roseville).
“We are pleased to have Brian as part of our team and know that his exceptional track record will greatly benefit us during this time of rapid change in the healthcare arena,” says Art Sponseller, President/CEO of the Hospital Council of Northern and Central California.
