Mullica Hill, NJ (September 7, 2021) – Inspira Health today announced the appointment of Julie H. Ellis, MBA, SHRM-SCP, to Vice President of Human Resources, effective September 7. Aligned with Inspira’s new strategic plan, Ellis has been chosen to further elevate the organization and quality of care through employee recruitment and retention efforts, as well as notable partnerships with the business community and other stakeholders. Through her role, she will solidify Inspira’s employee strategy to continuously improve its talent pool and pipeline for growth, and ultimately its role in the community.
Ellis has more than 20 years of experience in human resources within the health care industry, most recently serving as Assistant Vice President of Human Resources for Kennedy Health System, now part of Thomas Jefferson University. She continuously propelled the organization forward by setting and executing the vision for its people strategy, including talent management, organizational culture, change leadership and leadership development.
“Without our diverse and talented team, we cannot deliver on our patient promise to ensure a positive experience rooted in quality care. And, our HR department is a core driver in strengthening our community of employees to support the future of our network,” said Amy Mansue, President & CEO of Inspira Health. “I’m thrilled to have Julie join our HR team and support our journey in refining our talent acquisition, development, retention and engagement approach. Julie will bring tremendous value to the team with a deep expertise in driving unique strategies to support organizational growth, elevate our employee relations and ultimately continue to push Inspira forward as a health care leader.”
On the heels of Inspira’s recent appointment of Anneliese McMenamin as Chief Human Resources Officer, Ellis will work alongside McMenamin and support employee recruitment, engagement and retention efforts, as well as drive human resource business policies for the organization. Throughout the development and execution of various initiatives, Ellis’ strategic expertise will ensure all efforts align with Inspira’s mission, vision and values to both foster internal growth and optimize the patient experience.
“Inspira’s respect and appreciation for its employees, and patients, is admirable,” said Ellis. “I’m looking forward to joining a people-first team, and helping them achieve their newly defined goals during this transformational period, while ensuring that South Jersey continues to receive excellent patient care.”
Ellis holds a Bachelor of the Arts in Labor and Industrial Relations from Pennsylvania State University, as well as a Master’s degree in Business Administration from Rutgers University.
