Jon Finlinson

Jon started working at IPSC in 1983 and held various operation jobs until 2004 when he was promoted to Superintendent of Operations.  He was then promoted to President and Chief Operating Officer in 2010.

Jon is a caring boss who knows his employees.  He listens to their concerns and ideas.  He is fair and kind.  He considers the impact his decisions will have on his employees, the company, and the community.  He is humble and grateful for the great opportunity of having this plant in our valley and what it has done for the residents and community.  

Jon tries to hire locally and encourages IPSC personnel to shop locally.  His greatest desire is to support the children in the area, especially those who have limited resources, difficult challenges, or are underprivileged.  IPSC, under Jon's direction, donates anonymously to many organizations every year to better our community.

When COVID hit, Jon donated cash, equipment, and even hamburger to the local food bank.  He donated hundreds of N95 masks to our medical facilities.

Jon was anonymously nominated several times by DACC members for his leadership, community and school support, and gracious donations.  During COVID, Jon implemented policies to protect his employees health and job stability.  With the Coal-Fired Units being shut down at ISPC, Jon is striving to create additional job opportunities for his employees and the community.

Business of the Year
Delta Community  Hospital

West Millard Hospital was built in the 1960's.  In 1980, the hospital joined Intermountain Healthcare.  The hospital was rebuilt in its current location in 1985.  

 

Delta Community Hospital provides care for the sick regardless of ability to pay.  Last year, $716,000 in charity care was given.  The hospital is currently expanding and improving the emergency room, lab, pharmacy, and ultrasound areas, and is expected to be completed this year.  

 

As the hospital was considered "essential" in 2020, employees continued to work and provide services to our area.  The hospital was fortune to always have enough protective equipment through COVID-19.  No COVID cases were spread from patient, to employee, to co-worker.  COVID positive patients were sent to larger hospitals better equipped to handle very sick patients.  

Delta Community Hospital was able to work with numerous groups to provide testing, vaccines, updates to the community, and so much more while still delivering excellent care to everyday medical needs.  They set the tone for our area and acted professionally.  Our area is blessed to have such great caregivers during the last year.
