Gayle Mattson, a seasoned healthcare and hospice leader with a strong track record of success, will be the next president and chief executive officer for Hospice of Cincinnati, which is part of TriHealth. Mattson, who will start on June 3, replaces Sandra Lobert, who retired after serving nearly a decade in that role.

“In all of her roles, Gayle successfully implemented growth strategies, while enhancing the patient experience and fostering higher levels of employee engagement,” said Mark C. Clement, president and CEO of TriHealth. “In conducting our national search for Sandra’s replacement, which included administrative and clinical leadership in the selection process, Gayle’s experiences, proven results and leadership style rose to the top. We believe she will be a great addition to the TriHealth family.”

Mattson comes to TriHealth from Haven – which operates five inpatient hospice centers in northern Florida – where she has been president since 2016. While there, she developed new programs to better serve the patients and families, while at the same time, implementing strategies to improve employee engagement. Prior to Haven, she served as chief operating officer of Pathways Home Health, Hospice and Private Duty in Sunnyvale, California.

Mattson spent the first 13 years of her career as a registered nurse for Allina Health in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Subsequently, she assumed administrative roles of increasing responsibility within Allina, including serving as president of Allina’s home care, hospice and palliative care business. She also served as president of North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale, Minnesota, before joining Pathways in 2015.

“It is an honor to be joining Hospice of Cincinnati and TriHealth,” said Mattson.  “I am thrilled to serve an organization with such a rich legacy and stellar reputation that makes such a difference for patients and families with advanced illness and end of life needs.”

Hospice of Cincinnati has four inpatient locations – in Anderson, Blue Ash, College Hill and Hamilton – and offers home-based care and grief counseling. It also sponsors the Fernside Center for Grieving Children. Hospice of Cincinnati has become an important part of TriHealth, allowing us to provide care throughout a lifetime – ranging from world-class prenatal care to compassionate and comprehensive end-of-life services for patients and their families.
