Donna Landry, who most recently was chief administrative officer at Schumacher Group, joins Our Lady of Lourdes as Vice President of Corporate Development Aug. 24.
“I am pleased to announce that Donna Landry, a well known and very accomplished health care executive, will be joining the Lourdes Leadership team as the Vice President of Corporate Development," hospital President and Chief Executive Officer Bud Barrow wrote in an Aug. 18 email to Lourdes employees. “Donna was most recently the Chief Administrative Officer with The Schumacher Group and brings with her two decades of experience in hospital administration and operations. She has many strengths that will serve our mission well, including extensive skills in strategic planning, leadership training and business development.”
Landry spent 19 years at LGMC, having departed at end of December 2006 as Chief Operating Officer to join Schumacher Group. Landry, who was on the road this morning, answered via email that she left Schumacher for this new opportunity and will join Lourdes' executive leadership team to oversee strategic planning, business planning, physician recruitment, Lourdes Primary Care Physicians and Lourdes Imaging Network.
Barrow noted in his email that Landry has been integral to the success of corporations like Schumacher and LGMC and channeled her talents to assist numerous civic and professional organizations in the local community. “For many years, I have admired Donna through both her work in the healthcare industry and through her leadership roles in the Chamber of Commerce and the United Way of Acadiana,” Barrow wrote. “She has earned the admiration and respect of many in this community and her blend of professionalism and work ethic will certainly reflect our Franciscan core values.”
André Moreau, whose last day at the hospital is Friday, has been with Lourdes for almost 20 years, serving as vice president of corporate development for the past four. He worked closely with different boards/leadership for the hospital and affiliates like Lourdes Imaging Network, its partnership with LHC Home Health, Park Place Surgical Hospital and the Heart Hospital of Lafayette. Moreau was responsible for business development, physician recruitment, growth and operations of the Primary Care Physician Network, hospital strategic planning, and marketing/community relations. He is leaving to head operations for his family’s business, according to Lourdes spokeswoman Elisabeth Arnould, who did not identify the company.
Landry exiting Schumacher and Moreau leaving Lourdes were among several high profile departures in recent weeks. Mark Attales, Lafayette General’s director of community relations, is no longer with the hospital, and Leslie Davis, an LGMC communications specialist, resigned to stay home with her young children.
“I plan to freelance write, but mainly focus on the advertising collateral/PR/web writing that I did so much of [at the hospital],” Davis said in an email response on Aug. 8, her last day at the hospital. “It was a tough decision, because I love LGMC, but my husband’s job was just too busy for us to balance.” Davis’ husband, Robert, works for a local oilfield service company.
