Meisner has been serving patients at CTCA for more than 20 years. Previously, she served as president and CEO of CTCA at Midwestern Regional Medical Center (Midwestern) for six years.

Growth in patient services and the highest patient loyalty scores in the nation are hallmarks of Meisner’s tenure at CTCA. In her first year at Southeastern, Meisner steered accelerated growth of the hospital, including a major expansion project.
Under her leadership at Midwestern, she introduced numerous patient-centered programs in advanced radiation therapies, immunotherapies, cell therapies and Wisdom Medicine. Meisner originated the widely heralded Patient Empowered Care model, where all services cancer patients want are delivered in one location. She also expanded Midwestern’s stem cell and cell therapy program; expanded its surgical services and tripled its surgical space; and opened a Quality of Life clinic.
Additionally, Midwestern has been recognized by the National Quality Measures for Breast Centers Program as a Certified Quality Breast Center of Excellence. It is the only breast center of excellence in Illinois and one of only 33 centers nationwide. Midwestern has also received the HealthGrades Outstanding Patient Experience Award for three consecutive years. In 2012, Midwestern was named among the Top 10 workplaces in Illinois by the Chicago Tribune and is ranked above all other hospitals in patient loyalty scores by Bain & Company.
In 2013 and 2014, Meisner was recognized in the Atlanta Business Chronicle’s “Who’s Who in Health Care” issue, which spotlights the top 100 leaders in the health care industry. A graduate of the University of Wisconsin, she is a Masters Prepared Registered Nurse and former intensive care unit nurse. She is a member of many professional organizations, including the American College of Healthcare Executives.
