Dr. Mick Pattinson has been hired to replace outgoing president and CEO Morris Roth at AspenPointe, according to the nonprofit group, which provides behavioral and occupational therapy in the Pikes Peak region.
Pattinson will take over for Roth, who is retiring in August after more than 40 years at AspenPointe. Roth served as the organization’s CEO for 13 years.
Pattinson is currently the CEO of the Northern Arizona Regional Behavioral Health Authority, a large behavioral health managed-care corporation. In his new role, Pattinson will lead a staff of more than 500 who provide mental health and substance use treatment, career development training and education, and jail diversion and reintegration – to more than 37,000 children, individuals and families in the Pikes Peak Region and beyond each year.
“The board conducted an exhaustive national search looking for the best candidate to lead AspenPointe into the future and continue its course of excellence,” said Board Chairman Richard M. Sullivan. “After evaluating more than 100 resumes and interviewing several candidates from across the country, Mick was clearly identified as the outstanding choice.”
Pattinson has also served as President and CEO of Bear River Mental Health Services in Logan, Utah, and deputy director of Northern Wyoming Mental Health Center in Sheridan, Wyo.
