Dupont Hospital hires new COO Dupont Hospital officials recently announced a new chief operating officer has been hired to provide oversight of support and ancillary services, such as biomedical engineering, at the Fort Wayne, Indiana, hospital.

Bonnie Hanson will take over the reigns as the new COO, coming from Southwest Healthcare System in Murrieta, California, where she has been an associate administrator since 2010.

"We feel extremely fortunate to attract such a well-rounded team member to Dupont Hospital,” said Chad Towner, CEO of Dupont Hospital. “Bonnie clearly stood out from her competition during our search and we are very excited to add her to our administrative team.”

Hanson was also an associate administrator in two HCA hospitals after completing her Bachelor of Science in health promotion and disease prevention studies at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.

Hanson may find her job overseeing operations is made easier by Fort Wayne's location, as she will have plenty of options to procure products that are manufactured locally. Indiana has recently improved its position in the healthcare supply chain, leading the United States in life sciences jobs and growth, according to a  Battelle/Biotechnology Industry Organization report. The number of bioscience jobs has grown by 14 percent since 2001, and the state is a national leader in medical devices and equipment, as well as bioscience distribution, which includes biomedical equipment and supplies and drugs and pharmaceuticals.
