From 2009 until late 2020, Beth served as chief communications and marketing officer for the Wexner Medical Center, leading all facets of internal and external marketing communications, including digital strategy oversight, marketing plan development, institutional marketing, strategic public relations and change communications.

Beth’s insight and input in that role laid the foundation for a shift in strategy for the medical center toward digital communications. To support the new digital communications strategy, Beth put into place medical center’s first digital strategy team, working with the chief information officer to align IT and Marketing resources around organizational digital priorities.

She co-led the development of a five-year digital road map to improve patient experience and secured new funding for its implementation. Understanding that evidence-based outcomes establish trust and credibility, Beth conducted extensive consumer insight data that drove the digital plan.

Simultaneous, she led culture training workshops across Ohio State’s campus as a certified Senn-Delaney facilitator. 

Other career highlights include membership on the Vizient Chief Marketing Officer Council (since 2009), membership on the AMA Health Care Chief Marketing Officer Council (since 2014) and membership in the Society for Healthcare Strategy and Market Development (since 2015).
