Jamie Stout has been hired as the operations strategic manager for Springfield Clinic. She started her new position on June 7.

“In general, Springfield Clinic is really growing very rapidly,” said Stout, noting that she was hired for a newly created position in the business and operations department. “My role is to streamline processes for operational growth, now and into the future.”

Stout was most recently director of membership and annual giving for the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library Foundation, a position she held for nearly four years. She has also worked for Lincoln Land Community College and Girls Scouts of Central Illinois.

“I’ve always worked for mission-based organizations,” said Stout. “When people think of me, I really want them to think of my passion for the local community. Springfield Clinic seemed like a natural fit. I’m a life-long learner, and really interested in joining a team thinking in new and progressive ways.”

Stout holds a master’s degree in public administration from University of Illinois Springfield. She currently serves as president of Local First and is a board member for the Springfield Public School District 186 Foundation and the Springfield and Central Illinois African American History Museum.
