Alan Dow

Alan Dow has been part of the Southern Coos Hospital & Health Center community for many years. He most recently served as SCHHC’s interim CEO from November 2018 to January 2019. Alan is no stranger to the Bandon community and Southern Coos Hospital & Health Center. He has served as SCHHC’s interim CEO twice before, in August 2012 – April 2013 and October 2016-February 2017. He worked as SCHHC’s full-time Chief Financial Officer from 2009-2012. Alan’s association with Southern Coos Hospital & Health Center dates back even further than his most recent employment. Over 30 years ago, he was working for a hospital management company out of Portland, Oregon (Brim Healthcare), and was part of a team that made a proposal at the hospital (when the hospital was located on the hill overlooking old town). Shortly thereafter, he brought his wife Robin back to Bandon for vacation, and they have been coming here fairly often ever since. His wife, Robin, is a retired physical therapist, and they love to walk to stay in shape. They are dog people and love walking along the beach with their two four legged members of the family: a one-year old Jack Russell terrier who really keeps them on their toes, and an 8-year old “Schnoodle” that has been the easiest dog they have ever experienced.  Their favorite beach walk is to head south from the Face Rock State viewpoint beach access.
