KentuckyOne Health-Central and Eastern Market

Laura Babbage is the new market director of Service Excellence for the KentuckyOne Health remaining operations. Although this is a new role for Laura, she is not new to the Saint Joseph family. Laura has served as a chaplain at Saint Joseph Hospital and Saint Joseph East for 10 years.

Laura's professional experience is diverse, and she brings a wealth of it to this new role. Prior to her work as a chaplain, Laura served as the regional vice president for Women's Health Partners, chief executive officer for Urgent Treatment Centers of Kentucky, practice manager for Health Partners, director of operations/manager for Professional and Ancillary Services at Health America, director of professional relations for Humana Hospital, and as a registered nurse for the University of Kentucky Medical Center.

Laura received her undergraduate degree in nursing from Eastern Kentucky University, her Master of Arts in international business from the University of Kentucky, and her Master of Divinity from the Lexington Theological Seminary.

Laura transitioned to her new role on May 7 and is reporting to Kim Hatchel, chief nursing officer, who is leading the Service Excellence initiative across KentuckyOne Health.

Please join us in congratulating Laura!
