Methodist Hospital welcomes new leadership in New Year

Henderson, KY – Lynn Renee Steinwachs, a veteran healthcare administrator from Henderson, has been named to succeed Patrick S. Donahue as Vice President/Administrator at Methodist Hospital Union County in Morganfield, KY. Donahue retired at year end. Steinwachs will assume her new role beginning Monday, Jan. 9.

Steinwachs is a Licensed Nursing Home Administrator in the states of Kentucky, Indiana and Georgia. She most recently served as the Administrator of Parkview Nursing Home, a 100-bed facility in Evansville, IN. She is a graduate of Murray State University, earning both a bachelor’s degree in political science and a master’s degree in organizational management.

Her Union County ties run deep, as the family of her late mother, Helen Griggs Hillyard, along with the Tapp family, owned land purchased in 1942 by the U.S. government that became Camp Breckinridge.

Gary R. Colberg, FACHE, President and CEO at Methodist Hospital, said, “Lynn Renee’s considerable experience in healthcare will be an asset and her long-term care experience will help us strengthen our Swing Bed program. We are happy to welcome her to our team and know she will continue the progress and high standard of care Union County residents have come to expect under Patrick Donahue’s long-term leadership.”

Experienced healthcare administrator Benny Nolen joined the leadership team Jan. 3 as Vice President of Professional Services for Methodist Hospital in Henderson. He most recently served as President of Kentucky One Health’s St. Joseph Mt. Sterling hospital in Montgomery County. Nolen earned his bachelor’s degree from Belmont University, Nashville, TN and his master’s in healthcare administration from Bellevue University, Bellevue, NE.

“Benny Nolen has earned a reputation as an innovative leader who inspires operational excellence. He is passionate about community-based health care, and is a natural fit for our patient-centered culture,” added Colberg
