President and CEO
JPS Health Network
Robert Earley’s journey from South Texas to CEO of Tarrant County’s public supported healthcare system was anything but a straight line.
A political science graduate from the University of North Texas, Earley put that degree to use as a staff assistant to a Texas congressman in our nation’s capital. His D.C. experience sparked his own political aspirations and Earley returned to Texas to run for a seat in the Texas House of Representatives. He was only 23 when elected in 1984 to represent his South Texas hometown. He served 10 years before choosing not to seek re-election in 1995.
Before joining JPS Health Network in 2005 as a senior VP focused on community and government affairs, Earley taught college courses, ran an Austin-based public affairs firm and served as an on-air political analyst for NBC’s affiliate station in Austin. The Tarrant County Hospital District Board of Managers appointed him interim president and CEO in May 2008 and in February 2009 he was named president and CEO.
Earley holds a master’s degree in healthcare administration from the University of Texas-Arlington. He serves on the board of the Meadows Mental Health Policy Institute.
Earley and his veterinarian wife, Tricia, have one daughter.
