Patricia G. Luker - President/CEO
When it comes to hospital administration, Patty Luker can take a back seat to no one. After earning her master's degree in the field, she held top posts at hospitals in Ohio, Louisiana and Illinois.
But when it comes to riding the roads on their shiny red Harley, Patty is happy to let her husband, Bob, take over driving. "He tours me," she says with a laugh. "We just like to get out for an hour or two and have fun."
Patty and Bob have been a team for close to three decades and after she became a hospital administrator, he followed her to each new position. "He is a great guy," she says. "But it was also a great way to see the country." Bob now works as a human resources manager for Lowe's.
Patty joined the OSF family in July 2009. "I loved the environment here. Even though I'm not at the bedside, I have the ability to make sure patients have a great experience."
"Even though I had never worked for a Catholic organization before, coming here just felt right to me. It was all about the Mission and Values of the Sisters, and the way employees and patients are treated."
The Luker family includes three grown children. Jennifer lives in Connecticut with her husband, and is the Executive Assistant to an East Coast Eletrical Contractor. Jonathon is in the Army, and stationed at Joint Base Lewis/McCord in Washington. Julianne is living in Florida, attending college, majoring in Speech and Language Therapy. Patty has recently welcomed a new grandson, James Robert.
Besides riding motorcycles, Patty is also an avid reader, mostly non-fiction. Her latest? "Have a Little Faith," by Mitch Albom, which focuses on the "divine spark within us all" - something Patty knows well!
