Experienced healthcare data and operations executive Chad Luttrell joins growing team

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Friday, May 13, 2022 – Officials with Nashville-based ambulatory surgery center (ASC) development and management company, Lync Health Partners, announced today the appointment of Chad Luttrell as Chief Information Officer. In this role, he will lead Lync’s management and implementation of information and data technologies across the organization and its partners.

With over 20 years of experience in healthcare operations and data, Luttrell has dedicated his career to the industry and is a champion of technology solutions that improve the experience of providers and patients. Most recently he served as CIO of American Physician Partners, where he led major implementation initiatives, migrations without interruption in services, and the creation of data solutions to control data and manage business needs. Prior to this role, Luttrell worked with other surgical groups, including Meridian Surgical Partners, in leadership positions overseeing enterprise data warehouses. He also held multiple roles as a technical consultant across several industries, including healthcare.

“I am thrilled to join this proven team at such an exciting time of growth and momentum,” said Lutrell. “My passion lies in bringing solutions that help providers offer the best care possible – in a way that supports their decision-making and processes, rather than disrupts them. I look forward to bringing my experience to help advance what is possible for Lync’s provider partners and the patients they serve.”

Luttrell joins a skilled group of senior leaders at Lync, including CEO Kenny Hancock, COO and President Cathy Kowalski, CFO Jim Uden, CDO Greg Thompson and EVP Bill Wilder. Together, the leadership team combines for more than 100 years of healthcare management experience.

“As our company continues to grow and scale, technology is a key piece of our strategy and success,” said Hancock, who launched Lync with Kowalski and Uden in 2021. “The relationships Chad brings to our organization, in addition to his extensive data and IT industry knowledge, will be extremely valuable to Lync and our ASC partners. Gaining an expert like Chad will ensure our partners can benefit from the very best technology and systems.”
