Aundrea Lewis, MBA, RN, NE-BC, has worked at UofL Health – Peace Hospital for 16 years. Aundrea has recently been named the interim chief executive officer of Peace Hospital where she leads a wonderful group of team members who provide excellent and quality care.
When asked what her favorite part about working for UofL Health is, Aundrea said both the teamwork and people are outstanding.
Aundrea’s goal as the interim chief executive officer is to be the best leader she can be and continue to develop future leaders.
“I live out UofL Health’s mission in my role by helping others during one of the toughest times in their life,” Aundrea said.
Aundrea was born and raised in Louisville and attended duPont Manual High School, Spalding University and Sullivan University. Her favorite hobbies include watching UofL sports, cooking and spending time with her family.
One thing you may not know about Aundrea is that if she could only eat one meal for the rest of her life, it would be loaded nachos.
In Aundrea’s free time, you can catch her watching “Hell’s Kitchen” on TV or reading “Grit” by Angela Duckworth.
Aundrea also enjoys volunteering at the Oldham County little league and Highpoint Ministry. She has a servant’s heart and finds fulfillment in volunteering.
“If I wasn’t working full-time, I would dedicate my time to volunteering,” Aundrea said. “It really makes a difference in people’s lives, and it is better to give than receive.”
When asked what piece of inspiration she lives by, she said the quote by Martin Luther King Jr.: “If I can help somebody as I pass along, if I can cheer somebody up with a word or song, if I can show somebody he’s traveling wrong, then my living will not be in vain.”
If you see Aundrea at Peace Hospital, be sure to say “hello” and ask her about her recent volunteer work or swap recipes. She would love to get to know you!
