Kenneth Jones has been named CEO of The Orthopedic Hospital of Lutheran Health Network, a 39-bed facility on the Lutheran campus, officials announced Monday.
He replaces Shelly Miller, who left the position last summer to become CEO of Fort Wayne Orthopedics. The independent physician group has partial ownership of the hospital.
Jones was previously CEO of Heekin Orthopedic Specialists in Jacksonville, Fla. He has also worked in administrative and leadership positions in Florida and Georgia hospitals, where he had oversight of neurosciences, surgical services, orthopedics and ambulatory care.
The Georgia native began work Monday. He earned master’s degrees in health care administration and business administration from the University of Minnesota in 2003. His bachelor’s degree in biology is from Florida A&M University.
Jones and his wife, Hope, are the parents of two young children. Golf and basketball are two of the CEO’s favorite activities.
