With more than two decades of healthcare leadership experience, Stephanie Manson, FACHE, MSHA, MBA, began her tenure on March 1 at Our Lady of Lourdes Health, a ministry of Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady Health System. She has served the system since 1998 in a number of roles, including leading the successful implementation of its statewide electronic health record, and most recently as COO for Our Lady of the Lake Health.

With a strong desire for service and an aptitude for business, Manson found her career calling in a field that blends the two. Manson grew up in Houma, and moving to Lafayette feels like coming home.

“One thing that attracted me to Our Lady of Lourdes is how we’re interwoven into the fabric of our community,” Manson says. “I relish the opportunity to lead this thriving, growing organization.”

Throughout her career, Manson has been often recognized, including nationally by the Catholic Health Association as one of eight recipients of the Tomorrow’s Leaders Award in 2011. She was named a Baton Rouge Business Report Influential Woman in Business in 2021.
