Gina Stevenson, MSN, RN, has been with UofL Health for 20 years. As an infection preventionist with UofL Health – UofL Hospital, Gina is involved in many different areas. She and her team ensure that everyone is following evidence-based guidelines and standards in almost all areas of the facility, including nursing departments, lab, engineering and many others. They work to ensure that UofL Health is keeping both patients and team members safe.
Gina’s favorite thing about UofL Health is the overall environment.
“I am so grateful for the skills, knowledge, strength, humor and compassion that I witness every day in my co-workers and colleagues, and for the opportunity to learn something new every day,” Gina said.
Gina aims to continue to grow UofL Health’s outreach so that the health of the community is truly impacted.
She lives out our organization’s mission by being understanding when working with patients and employees.
“I am empathetic and compassionate while helping staff understand and utilize the most current infection control standards, so they and their patients are safe,” Gina explained.
One thing you may not know about Gina is that she’s a fan of any outdoor activity, including swimming which is one of her favorites.
Gina was born and raised here in Louisville where she attended Assumption High School, Jefferson Community & Technical College and Indiana Wesleyan University.
When unwinding during the week, Gina enjoys reading her current book Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan or watching Schitt’s Creek, Rings of Power or Parks and Recreation.

Animal lovers will find a friend in Gina. She adores her five pets: a lab named Molly and four cats, Frederick, Finnegan, Percival and Penelope. Her canine and feline companions are treated as if they were any other family member.
If you were to ask Gina about her daily mantra, it would be “I get up every morning determined to both change the world and have one (heck) of a good time. Sometimes this makes planning my day difficult,” from E.B. White.
If you see Gina out and about, be sure to say “hello” and ask her about her latest read or to show you a picture, or five, of her fur babies. She would love to get to know you!
