MONROE — EvergreenHealth Monroe has a new chief administrative officer after former executive Renee Jensen left abruptly in July.

Lisa LaPlante, who has served as interim leader after Jensen’s departure, will be the new chief administrative officer.

Jensen resigned from her position after just two years at the organization. EvergreenHealth never provided details as to the nature of her departure.

LaPlante joined EvergreenHealth Monroe in 2010 to lead the quality division, according to the hospital’s website.

She holds a bachelor of science degree in health care services and a master’s in healthcare administration from the University of Phoenix. LaPlante has been working in health care since 1993, starting at a hospital-based home health agency in Moab, Utah.

In 2002, she took a position overseeing accreditation at Southwest Memorial Hospital in Cortez, Colorado. She also served as the chief quality and compliance officer there before moving to EvergreenHealth Monroe.

For many years, EvergreenHealth Monroe was called Valley General Hospital.

Leaders in the public hospital district later decided to affiliate with the EvergreenHealth system, a public hospital district just to the south in northeast King County. As part of its new affiliation, the name changed to EvergreenHealth Monroe in March 2015.
