UofL Health announces the appointment of Terry Johnson as Senior Vice President of Human Resources. Johnson brings with him more than 20 years of senior leadership experience including employee recruiting, retention and succession planning, compensation, and benefits.

“I joined UofL Health because of its commitment to excellence in care, serving the underserved, and investing in its employees,” said Johnson. “As Kentucky’s largest academic health system, and one of the region’s largest employers, we have the opportunity to positively impact so many lives and communities. I look forward to strengthening the relationship between the various health disciplines and the community.”

Johnson completed his Master of Business Administration at the University of Tennessee. During his six years as Sr. VP of HR for Quorum Health Corporation, he successfully reduced turnover in clinical areas, particularly in nursing. He also filled HR leadership roles at LifePoint Hospitals, Inc. and Walt Disney World.

“Terry brings the experience UofL Health needs, especially during this time of significant growth,” said Tom Miller, CEO of UofL Health. “He values investing in culture, team dynamics and leadership development. Terry will be an advocate for our 12,000 team members, supporting them so they can focus on taking care of our patients.”

In addition to leading UofL Health’s HR initiatives, Johnson expects to get involved in the greater Louisville area. In previous communities, his volunteer work included support of the United Way, Rotary, American Heart Association, American Cancer Society and Boy Scouts of America.

Johnson is relocating to Louisville with his wife Karen. They have five adult children and one grandchild.
