About Laura Hennum

Hennum joined GSRMC in August as the new CEO. She is an experienced health care professional, with more than 25 years of leadership roles in several Western states.

Most recently, she helped develop and then served as regional CEO of multiple “neighborhood (micro) hospitals” in Southern Nevada. These facilities provide emergency care, inpatient services and related outpatient services in a number of states. Those that Hennum developed were part of a joint venture between Emerus and Dignity Health.

Over the past 18 months, Hennum split her time between Nevada and Washington, where she worked with MultiCare in the Puget Sound region to develop and operate innovative health facilities there.

Hennum previously served as chief strategy officer for Dignity Health’s Nevada Service Area, and she also held leadership roles with health care organizations in Central and Southern California.

Hennum grew up in the Portland area, earning a bachelor’s degree in communications from Washington State University and a master’s degree in health administration from Virginia Commonwealth University. She began her career with Providence Health & Services, working for both Providence St. Vincent Medical Center and Portland Providence Medical Center.
