UofL Health is pleased to announce that Karen Young has accepted the CEO position for UofL Health – Frazier Rehab Hospital – Brownsboro, a joint venture between UofL Health – Frazier Rehabilitation Institute and LifePoint Health. Karen has been with the organization for more than 25 years working in a variety of roles throughout UofL Health.
“This is a well-earned promotion for Karen,” said Cathy Spalding, CEO of Frazier Rehab Institute. “I’m excited that she will be so closely connected to the downtown Frazier Rehab Institute location and will represent the Frazier Rehab Institute name exceptionally well.”
Karen is currently the director of admissions, case management and business development at Frazier Rehab Institute. During her tenure, she has managed rehab services at UofL Health – Shelbyville Hospital, worked with our occupational medicine program and then was brought to Frazier Rehab Institute to serve in the business development role by then CEO, Joanne Berryman.
“I am honored to have the opportunity to expand inpatient rehab services with the Frazier Rehab Institute name in the East End,” Karen said. “Maintaining a close collaboration between the two Frazier Rehab Institute locations will result in growth for both campuses, and I look forward to giving leadership to the new Frazier Rehab Hospital – Brownsboro.”
