PORTLAND, ORE. - Jennifer Burrows, RN, has been chosen to serve as the chief executive of Providence Oregon. Jennifer will be stepping into the role held by William Olson, who announced his retirement earlier this year.

"It is both an honor and a privilege to be asked to lead our Oregon ministry during this time of immense change in health care," says Jennifer Burrows, RN, chief executive, Providence Oregon. "I take on this accountability mindful of the heritage of the leaders who have come before me over the past 168 years, and the communities who entrust us with their care today and into the future."

Jennifer will officially begin her role in early May.
