CEO of OrthoIndy wins leadership award

OrthoIndy and the Indiana Orthopaedic Hospital (IOH) announced Monday that CEO Jane Keller has received the Excellence in Leadership Award from Executive Women in Healthcare (EWHC).

EWHC is known for honoring Central Indiana women for their exemplary leadership in healthcare.

“I am honored to be the recipient of such a distinguished award that recognizes women in leadership roles,” Keller said in a press release. “I feel privileged to be recognized among other strong female leaders who are dedicated to making an impact on the delivery of health care.”

The Excellence in Leadership Award is presented to individuals who are recognized as a leader in healthcare, as well as in the community at large, by making an impact on healthcare delivery through visionary and innovative approaches whether as a volunteer or in a compensated capacity; create an environment that enhances the image of her own organization, as well as the image of executives in the healthcare community generally; participate in the development of leadership opportunities for women in healthcare roles; and provide examples of leadership in community service, whether in healthcare or other areas.

Keller graduated from Ball State University with a degree in nursing. She worked for Methodist Hospital as a nurse, patient care manager, clinical manager/shift coordinator, and finally, director of perioperative performance.

While receiving her MBA from Butler University, Keller began working at OrthoIndy as the executive director/nursing director of the surgery centers. She was promoted to the chief nursing officer at IOH in 2005 and became the hospital’s chief executive officer in ‘06.

In 2013 she was named chief executive officer of OrthoIndy and IOH. Keller works with the board of directors to create and implement the companies’ strategic plan to ensure the highest level of patient satisfaction.

She is involved with a number of national and local organizations. She is the advisory board chair for the Indiana Charter of the Arthritis Foundation, regional board member for the arthritis foundation, a member of the Healthcare Advisory Board for Women’s Choice, and a member of the council of hospital governance for the Indiana Hospital Association.
