PeaceHealth announces new chairman of the Board

August 1, 2018


The PeaceHealth Board of Directors is pleased to announce the appointment of Karl Carrier as its new chairman. Carrier will succeed Sister Andrea Nenzel, CSJP who will remain on the Board as vice chair. The appointment of Carrier marks the first time in which the PeaceHealth Board chair position is held by a lay leader, furthering the essential role of the laity in Board governance and in carrying on PeaceHealth’s healing Mission.

“The time is right for the leadership of PeaceHealth to be placed into the open hands of the members of our community,” said Sister Andrea Nenzel. “I am pleased to work with Karl Carrier who has the experience, values and faith commitment to lead us forward in carrying on the Mission of PeaceHealth.”

Carrier has served the PeaceHealth Board as chair of the Strategy and Stewardship committee since 2016. He holds a Master of Business Administration in Finance from the University of Oregon and has held senior executive roles in several nonprofit and Catholic healthcare organizations.

“I am deeply humbled to accept the responsibilities of the Board chair,” said Carrier. “As we look to the future of PeaceHealth, we will continue to live out the mission of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace by growing our ministry to better serve our communities.”

“We are fortunate to have someone of Karl Carrier’s integrity and experience to step into the leadership of our Board and help position PeaceHealth for future strategic growth and service to our communities,” said Liz Dunne, PeaceHealth president and chief executive officer. “We are especially grateful for Sister Andrea’s enduring leadership for the past 12 years and look forward to her continued service as vice chair of our Board as we further PeaceHealth’s Mission of service.”
