Leadership

Fran Laukaitis, RN, BSN, MHA, FACHE
President, Methodist Charlton Medical Center

Fran-Laukaitis​Fran Laukaitis became president of Methodist Charlton Medical Center in March 2015. Prior to being named president, Laukaitis served as interim president and chief nursing officer at Methodist Charlton. Laukaitis is the first registered nurse (RN) to become president of a Methodist Health System facility.

During her time at Methodist Charlton, Laukaitis has been instrumental in improving the quality of care provided to all patients. The number of patients who leave the emergency department without being seen has been greatly reduced. Patient satisfaction results have improved dramatically. New units, such as the intermediate care unit, have been opened to better serve the needs of the hospital’s population. Joint Commission surveys have been successful and Methodist Charlton now has a STEMI program for fast heart attack care, as well as primary stroke accreditation. All of these combined help raise the bar for quality and solidify Methodist Charlton's position in its market as a competitive leader.

Laukaitis began her nursing career with hospitals throughout Pennsylvania, Ohio, Florida and Texas. Her first chief nursing officer role was in 1999 in Kalispell, Montana. After spending seven years in that role, she was promoted to the chief operating officer for the same facility where she served an additional four years. In 2010, she joined Methodist Charlton as chief nursing officer.
