OrthoIndy and the Indiana Orthopaedic Hospital (IOH) announced today that John Martin will be stepping down from his current position as chief executive officer of OrthoIndy to pursue other professional interests. Jane Keller, current chief executive officer of IOH will become the interim chief executive officer of the company and assume Martin’s responsibilities.
“This was not a decision Martin took lightly nor made quickly,” said Frank Kolisek MD, President of OrthoIndy. The OrthoIndy board appreciates Martin’s commitment to the companies and the successes they have had together, including the affiliation with St. Vincent, the statewide orthopedic partnership created through that affiliation, creation of OrthoIndy Enterprises and the increase in the growth of the entire enterprise.
“I let the board know that this is one of the best places I have worked in 26 years. I am very thankful to the group for the opportunities that have been afforded me and for the support I have received over the last eight years,” said Martin. “There are some things that I have wanted to pursue professionally for a number of years and I have decided that now is the time to begin that pursuit.”
“I have enjoyed working with John over the past seven years,” said Keller. “I admire his commitment to providing the best experience possible for our patients. We are thankful for John’s contributions to our organization and wish him best of luck in his future endeavors.”
Keller graduated from Ball State University with a degree in nursing and went on to work for Methodist Hospital as a nurse, patient care manager, clinical manager/shift coordinator and finally, director of perioperative performance. While receiving her MBA from Butler University, Keller began working at OrthoIndy as the executive director/nursing director of the surgery centers. She was promoted to the chief nursing officer at IOH in 2005, before taking on her current role as chief executive officer of IOH in 2006.
“I am excited for the opportunity and look forward to addressing the challenges the healthcare industry faces, ensuring that our patients continue to receive the level of care they have come to expect at OrthoIndy and the Indiana Orthopaedic Hospital.”
