There hasn’t been a woman at the helm of St. Luke’s since Sister Julianna and the Sisters of St. Benedict turned the hospital over to the community in 1984.
There is now. In fact, the board of St. Luke’s Medical Center didn’t have to look far to find her.
Jody Nelson has been named Interim Administrator of St. Luke’s in Crosby.
Nelson, a Crosby native, previously served as the hospital’s Director of Financial Management. She assumed the Interim Administrator’s duties following the resignation of Cody Barnhart in May. Now, the only thing that’s changed is her title. She is now doing the work of both positions.
