Former Fisher-Titus Medical Center President & CEO Lorna Strayer was honored recently with a plaque recognizing her 33 years of dedicated service to patients and the community and her inspirational leadership at Fisher-Titus.  The plaque hangs in the Rehabilitation Department to commemorate the department in which Strayer began her career in 1985 as a certified speech-language pathologist.

After that first job of caring for patients, Strayer went on to serve as director of rehabilitation and industrial health services, assistant vice president of rehabilitation, vice president of business development and rehabilitation, and senior vice president of administration and business development. She was named president and CEO in 2014 and retired from that role this spring.

 “At my urging, Lorna agreed to stay on to assist the organization’s transition to new leadership,” said Matt Gross, CEO of Fisher-Titus Health.  “With Dr. Brent Burkey now onboard and the transition complete, Lorna has taken on a new role as chief of development.”

 Strayer will be focusing on a variety of community and philanthropic initiatives to strengthen relationships between the Fisher-Titus Health system and local organizations.

 “Over the years, Lorna has been an actively involved in our community, understands the health and social needs of our residents, and certainly has legacy knowledge about Fisher-Titus thanks to her long tenure here,” Gross said.  “It’s a natural fit.”
