Lutheran's Orthopedic Hospital gets new CEO

Kenneth Jones has been named CEO of The Orthopedic Hospital of Lutheran Health Network, a 39-bed facility on the Lutheran campus, officials announced Monday.

He replaces Shelly Miller, who left the position last summer to become CEO of Fort Wayne Orthopedics. The independent physician group has partial ownership of the hospital.

Jones and his wife, Hope, are the parents of two young children. Golf and basketball are two of the CEO’s favorite activities.
