A Hometown Girl with International Flair
Lauren Frazier, the Lufkin Administrator, studied health sciences and minored in corporate communication and public relations, also obtaining a concentration in Biochemistry at Baylor University. An adventurous spirit, Lauren has also been involved in international studies and practice in order to expand her perspectives.
I received my MBA with a specialization in Healthcare Administration at Lamar University. My early days were very focused on the clinical side with countless hours in labs and patient care and experience. I have completed countless days of hands-on-experience throughout my studies and career, including spending time in Costa Rica and Panama solely to help administer patient care and assess the disparity and continuum of care.
Last summer, she did a Study Abroad MBA program in China which included projects and learning sessions in Beijing, Guangzhou, and Hong Kong.
The Fellowship Program
After a year in the fellowship program, Lauren is more than ready to tackle the leadership as the Lufkin administrator. The fellowship program was created for post-graduate students to thoroughly develop and begin their career as a well-rounded Healthcare Executive. “During this time, I was able to lead significant efforts and gain thorough experience in all management departments including Communications and Marketing, Executive Office, Finance, Operations, Private Equity, Billing and Management, and other Regional Services associated with Altus Health. There is no training period for the rigorous program.”
It has been a long road to this point in my career. However, it is one that has been most rewarding.
Greatly respected by all, president Kevin Herrington announced her new role as Lufkin Administrator with great pride, “Lauren has been a stellar employee and has a great ability to observe, analyze and make sound judgment calls.”
Lauren is one of our excellent health care executives that has obtained valuable first-hand experience through the Fellowship Program.
