This year, Chief Clinical Officer and Christ Hospital icon, Mike Jennings, MD, made the decision to return to his first love – patient care – specifically serving those in long-term care facilities. "I've always had a love for geriatrics as part of my internal medicine practice," he says.

Dr. Jennings has been a fixture of The Christ Hospital for nearly 40 years, beginning with his internship and residency here. Throughout that time, he has been the President of The Christ Hospital Physicians, Vice President and Chief Clinical Officer, President of the Medical Staff, Director of the Internal Medicine Residency Program, Board member, Medical Director of The Christ Hospital Medical Associates, and the Director of the Department of Internal Medicine. Dr. Jennings leaves a legacy of integrity and commitment to patients that will impact The Christ Hospital Health Network for decades to come. We cannot thank him enough.
