In 2015, Chris Zorn joined Kindred Healthcare for an Executive Fellowship and he and his family relocated to Chicago, IL for his new role. After completing his fellowship in August 2016, Chris was named Assistant Administrator of Kindred’s Chicago Northlake Hospital. In October 2016, there was a leadership change at Kindred’s Chicago Central Hospital and Chris was asked to serve as interim CEO during the CEO search process.
Chicago Central is a 94-bed transitional care hospital affiliated with Kindred Healthcare, the largest provider of diversified, post-acute care services in the United States. Chicago Central provides aggressive, specialized interdisciplinary care to medically complex patients who require extended recovery time. In his role as the interim CEO, Chris led the organization’s financial and operational performance and partnered with the clinical team to provide excellent care to patients and their families.
Chris says serving as Interim CEO was a tremendous opportunity and the amount of ‘hands-on’ experience he received was invaluable. He continues to serve as Assistant Administrator at Kindred’s Chicago Central Hospital. Chris earned his M.S. in Management and Leadership from the Pepperdine Graziadio School of Business and Management in 2014.
