St. Francis Regional Medical Center has named Amy Jerdee as its new president.
Jerdee will assume her new position on June 24.
“Amy is an exceptional leader with outstanding clinical and operational experience, most recently as president of clinical operations at Aurora BayCare Medical Center in Green Bay, Wisconsin,” said Deb Pauly, chairwoman of the St. Francis Regional Medical Center board, in a press release. “Everyone who has met Amy in this process agrees that she will be a wonderful addition to the St. Francis team.”
Jerdee began her career as a registered nurse in the cardiac surgery intensive care unit at Mayo Medical Center in Rochester. She then earned a law degree from the University of Minnesota Law School, after which she spent five years practicing law at a Milwaukee firm specializing in health care law.
She then joined the Aurora system, where she had several roles, including leading the women’s health and orthopedic service lines, in business development and director of clinical risk management.
“I am very excited to have been selected to lead St. Francis Regional Medical Center. It is apparent that the hospital is fully committed to its mission and providing high quality, patient-focused care,” Jerdee said in the release. “I look forward to continuing to grow the services offered to meet the needs of this community.”
