DAY­TON — Lori Turner, wife of U.S. Rep. Mike Turner, RCen­ter­ville, has joined Ket­ter­ing Health Net­work as vice pres­i­dent of mar­ket devel­op­ment and strate­gic com­mu­ni­ca­tions.

Kevin Lavoie, net­work spokesman, con­firmed the hire late Mon­day af­ter­noon. He de­clined to say who Turner is suc­ceed­ing.

“Lori is a skilled strate­gic thinker who will bring great en­ergy to our or­ga­ni­za­tion and im­prove our ca­pa­bil­i­ties. She has earned a rep­u­ta­tion for build­ing pro­fes­sional and high per­for­mance teams that de­liver re­sults. We are pleased to wel­come her to the Ket­ter­ing Health Net­work fam­ily,” Roy Chew, pres­i­dent of Ket­ter­ing Med­i­cal Cen­ter, said in a mes­sage sent Mon­day to net­work man­agers.

“ Ket­ter­ing Health Net­work has a big heart for this com­mu­nity,” Turner said in a state­ment. “It is a plea­sure to serve along­side Ket­ter­ing’s skilled and com­pas­sion­ate team.”

Be­fore join­ing KHN, Turner was pres­i­dent and chief ex­ec­u­tive of her firm, the Turner Ef­fect, which worked for the Ket­ter­ing Med­i­cal Cen­ter. The busi­ness also served more than 250 clients in health care, man­u­fac­tur­ing and pro­fes­sional ser­vices, ac­cord­ing to Chew.

Turner also served as as­sis­tant vice pres­i­dent of mar­ket­ing and com­mu­ni­ca­tions for Union Cen­tral Life in Cincin­nati. She holds a mas­ter’s de­gree in busi­ness ad­min­is­tra­tion from the Uni­ver­sity of Day­ton.

In 2006, the Day­ton Devel­op­ment Coali­tion hired Turner’s firm to help de­velop a re­gional brand­ing cam­paign. In Fe­bru­ary 2008, Turner with­drew her firm from the cam­paign. She said Day­ton Daily News re­ports about the firm’s $300,000 no-bid con­tract were cre­at­ing a harm­ful dis­trac­tion for the $1.5 mil­lion cam­paign.
