FORT WAYNE -

Lutheran Health Network has named Paula Autry chief executive officer of Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne. She will succeed Lutheran Health Network CEO Mike Poore, who has also been serving as interim head of the hospital since June when the health system said unspecified circumstances put then-CEO Brian Bauer's employment "in an untenable position." Autry will begin November 6.

She previously served as CEO of Sinai-Grace Hospital in Detroit, which employed some 700 physicians, 700 nurses and 1,700 support staff. Autry is a University of Notre Dame graduate, who also holds a degree from Tulane University. She says "I believe it is an exciting time to be a part of Fort Wayne as it continues to develop and become a more progressive community while maintaining its reputation as a great place for families. Lutheran has a long legacy of providing excellent care with a commitment to the region. I am excited to be a part of Lutheran's continued growth and its focus on service and quality."

Her previous experience as market leader for Detroit Medical Center's oncology and women and infants service lines and leadership roles at hospitals and academic institutions in Alabama, Tennessee, Virginia, Georgia and Ohio.

Poore says "speaking for all those who took part in the interview process, including members of Lutheran's medical staff, we are fortunate to have someone with Paula's experience and qualifications join our team. She shares our unwavering commitment for our hospital and network to reach their fullest potential."

Lutheran Health Network is in the midst of a $500 million investment in modernization efforts throughout its full portfolio of northeast Indiana facilities.
