OhioHealth Grant Medical Center names Stacey Armstrong as new Chief Operating Officer
OhioHealth Grant Medical Center announced today that Stacey Armstrong has been named the new chief operating officer (COO) for the hospital. Armstrong replaces Kevin Lutz, DPM, who has transitioned to COO of the new OhioHealth Grove City Methodist Hospital.
Armstrong returned to OhioHealth in June 2015 to serve as the OhioHealth Physician Group (OPG) vice president, specialty, for central Ohio, after five years at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC), where she served as vice president of operations. Prior to her time at UPMC, she spent 19 years with OhioHealth, serving as director of Lab and Support Services, as well as interim vice president at Grant Medical Center for eight months in 2009.
“I am truly excited to return to Grant,” said Armstrong. “It is certainly an exciting time here as the hospital continues to grow to meet the community need. Whether it’s the expansion of trauma services, the growing OhioHealth Bone & Joint Center at Grant, the building of a new outpatient care center and even more – there is so much to look forward to here. I couldn’t be happier to join this team that is so committed to providing high-quality care for the community.”
During her tenure with OPG, Armstrong was instrumental in overseeing HIMSS-7 achievement for 72 OPG practices and led the initiative to improve efficiency for OPG’s scanning process by partnering with Solarity, a chart indexing vendor. In addition, she co-led OPG’s efforts to form an official musculoskeletal division of our sports medicine, orthopedic, rheumatology and podiatric physicians.
“Stacey is a proven leader throughout her career in healthcare,” said Michael Lawson, president, Grant Medical Center. “She brings the leadership and expertise that will help guide Grant as we continue to grow to serve our patients and their families.”
Armstrong earned her Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology from Indiana University and her Master of Business Administration from Franklin University. She begins her new role on June 1.
