A Welcome Message from Deborah Lee-Eddie, Interim CEO for the Louisville Market


Deborah Lee-Eddie
Interim CEO for the Louisville Market
It is my honor to join you as the Interim CEO for the Louisville Market. As I prepared to take on this new role, I took some time to learn about the legacy of excellence and innovation across the Louisville operations. The diverse combination of cultures and faith traditions distinguishes our organization from others and brings a special approach to compassion, caring and inclusion.

Everything I learned inspired me and excited me to take on this role and join you in the mission to bring wellness, healing and hope to all.

As I have completed my first full week in Louisville, I am also fully aware of the ongoing period of transition in this market. In my + 30 years of experience in hospital and health system leadership across the country, like you I’ve experienced uncertainty and understand the anxiety that uncertainty brings. While everyone’s situation and experience is unique I believe my background will aid in supporting you through this transition.

I commit to you that I am focused on helping to support every one of our employees, clinicians, and physicians, as you continue to deliver on your commitment to the patients and families we serve.

I have a great deal of experience with CHI, having previously served a similar role at CHI St. Luke's Health System in Houston, and before that as a regional SVP across multiple markets. I’ll be relying on that experience, my faith and the counsel of the Louisville leadership team to support my commitment to you all. I look forward to continuing to get to know individuals across the organization, listening to your concerns and helping to support your efforts on behalf of our patients and families.

Together with the facility presidents and all the leadership across the Louisville region, we thank you for your continued dedication to our customers, our organization and our community. I look forward to working with you all.

Sincerely,

Deborah Lee-Eddie
Interim CEO for the Louisville Market
