Halifax Health announced Tuesday that it has promoted Joni Hunt to Vice President of Government Relations.
Hunt has worked as the health system’s Director of Local Government and Community Relations since 2018, representing its interests at the federal, state and local levels.
She has also been involved in boosting Halifax Health’s community engagement efforts by starting the company’s “Live Your Life Well” luncheons, which serve as a forum for Halifax Health speakers to share information on the services it provides with a wide audience.
Hunt, who was honored as an “Influential Woman in Business” by the Daytona Beach News Journal in 2015, also heads up Halifax Health Associates, a group of community leaders who are charged with sharing the information with the community about the work and services available through Halifax Health.
In an email announcing the promotion, Halifax Health President and CEO Jeff Feasel lauded Hunt for her work disseminating timely information on vaccines and other COVID-19 matters to the local business community.
“We are fortunate to have Joni representing Halifax Health in our community and spreading the good work of our team members every day,” he said.
In addition to her work at Halifax Health, Hunt is involved in several community organizations, such as the Boys and Girls Clubs of Volusia and Flagler County. She also holds seats on the Bethune-Cookman University Board of Counselors, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University College of Arts and Sciences Industry Advisory Board and the Daytona Regional Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, among others.
Halifax Health operates several facilities in Volusia and Flagler counties, including hospitals, urgent care facilities, cancer treatment centers and primary care walk-in clinics.
