(PHOENIX – July 11, 2017) – Southwest Behavioral & Health Services is pleased to announce it has appointed Steven Sheets as the vice president of outpatient services. In his new role, Sheets will be responsible for providing administrative and clinical oversight of Maricopa and Gila counties’ outpatient clinics, partnering with system stakeholders and community partners, and developing and implementing programs to sustain and grow outpatient services within the two counties.
“We are pleased to have Steven enter this new role,” said Jeff Jorde, SB&H president and CEO. “He has held several positions within our organization at different outpatient clinics, so we believe this will be a great fit for both him and SB&H.”
Sheets earned his bachelor’s degree from Grand Canyon University and his master’s in professional counseling from Ottawa University. Prior to this position, Sheets interned for SB&H in the residential program before becoming a children’s services supervisor at its Erickson Outpatient Clinic in central Phoenix. He then moved to the Broadway Outpatient Clinic in south Phoenix as a program coordinator, and soon after was promoted to a program director at SB&H’s Metro Outpatient Clinic, in north central Phoenix.
Born and raised in Phoenix, where he still currently resides, Sheets enjoys traveling, running, cooking, and playing guitar and singing in his free time.
