Lutheran Health Network Promotes Two Nurses to Major Leadership Roles
Krista Quinones and Angie Logan Expand Their Responsibilities
FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Monday, April 28, 2014) – Lutheran Health Network officials announced today the promotion of two nurses who possess a wealth of leadership experience. Tapped to move into the role of vice president of regional service line development for Lutheran Health Network, Krista Quinones, RN, has been working in this capacity on an interim basis since February. Angie Logan, RN, has accepted the newly created position of assistant chief nursing officer at Lutheran Hospital.
Quinones most recently worked as the director of Lutheran Hospital’s STAT Transfer Center, critical care ground transport, Lutheran Air and trauma services. Her primary responsibility will be to look for ways to partner with regional hospitals and physicians through new or existing services. Quinones will work closely with LHN CEO Brian Bauer in these pursuits. She has demonstrated her ability to build relationships with the successful launch of Lutheran Air II in Wabash last fall, and through numerous other effective outreach efforts within emergency services, critical care transport and trauma services over the past several years.
Quinones has worked for LHN since 1991 when she started as a student nurse at Bluffton Regional Medical Center. She moved her way up the ranks as a registered nurse at Lutheran Hospital, then house supervisor, supervisor and eventually to the director level. She earned her associate degree from the University of Saint Francis in 1992 and obtained her bachelor’s degree in 2011 from Chamberlain College of Nursing located in Addison, Ill.
Prior to her new role as ACNO, Logan served as nurse manager for advance cardiac therapy where she was integral in the opening of Lutheran’s advance cardiac therapy unit. Logan will report to and work closely with Lutheran’s CNO Diane Springer. Her primary responsibility is to oversee clinical operations for all nursing, with a particular focus on leadership development and driving quality outcomes.
Logan was presented with the Heart Failure Nurse Maven Award in 2013 by The Healthcare Accreditation Colloquium and has been called upon to speak at various national heart failure conferences.
Employed at Lutheran Hospital since 2000, Logan began as the heart failure coordinator in 2009 and advanced to nurse manager in 2011. Logan received her associate degree in 2004 from Purdue University at IPFW. She is currently enrolled in a master’s program for leadership and management at Western Governors University, based in Salt Lake City.
