Lorie Ailor

Lutheran Health Network announced that longtime network executive Lorie Ailor will become chief executive officer of Lutheran Hospital in mid-July. Lutheran Hospital is the flagship facility for the Network. Ailor has been with LHN for 26 years – including a decade as CEO of the Orthopedic Hospital, a role she will maintain.

“We are confident that the continuity and expertise represented by this important executive leadership appointment will contribute significantly to the progress of the hospitals that Lorie will steward directly, and Lutheran Health Network overall,” said Mark Medley, regional president for Community Health Systems. “Lorie has tremendous leadership skills and fiscal acumen and knows how to bring team members and physicians together to create programs and services that patients need and want,” he added.

“I am honored to step into the role of CEO at Lutheran Hospital and continue our commitment to providing safe, high quality, accessible care to the people and communities that we serve. It has been a pleasure working with our current team and physician partners to advance orthopedic care in the region. I look forward to bringing this experience and knowledge of the market to the patients and staff and physicians of Lutheran Hospital,” Ailor said.

A Fort Wayne resident, Ailor is involved within the Allen County community where she serves on the board of directors for PFW Athletics, Mad Anthonys, Downtown Fort Wayne, and Hope’s Harbor, among others. Ailor earned her Bachelor of Science, and Master of Science, from the University of Indianapolis.
