After leaving education and acute care hospital administration, Lori has truly found her calling in the Freestanding ER environment. She creates an environment that is truly dedicated to enhancing the patient experience and delivering the highest quality of patient care possible. Working at The Colony ER Hospital is a dream come true for Lori. Here she can assemble a team of like-minded professionals with the passion for excellence.
