The New Jersey Hospital Association (NJHA) today installed Lori Herndon, MBA, BSN, RN, president and chief executive officer, AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center as its Board Chair at the 103rd NJHA annual meeting.

Because of COVID-19, the ceremony was held virtually.

The NJHA is a not-for-profit trade organization, whose focus is placed upon delivering support and services to:

  • The state’s hospitals.
  • Health systems.
  • Other healthcare providers.

The NJHA is recognized as one of the largest and most influential health organizations in the state of New Jersey.

“I am humbled and honored to serve our broader community and to work even more closely with hospital and healthcare leaders across the state, said Herndon, of Brigantine. The theme of the NJHA meeting was Building Health.”

“This is very appropriate as we build back from COVID. Building Health also aligns with what we live and breathe every day at AtlantiCare, where our vision is Building Healthy Communities Together,” said Herndon.
