Jenna Floberg, executive director at the Villa Loretto nursing home and Villa Rosa assisted living, Mt. Calvary, will be among 11 young professionals who will be recognized by the Catholic Health Association (CHA) in early June in Dallas.
Floberg will be honored as one of Tomorrow's Leaders 11 accomplished individuals - all age 40 or younger - who are poised to continue to make significant contributions to the ministry for years to come.
The Catholic health ministry of tomorrow depends on strong leadership and passionate commitment to the healing mission. Encouraging the promising young leaders of today to continue their careers in the ministry, CHA's Tomorrow's Leaders program each year honors an impressive cadre of dedicated, high-performing individuals who already have demonstrated commitment to advancing the mission of Catholic health care.
The honorees are recognized at the annual Catholic Health Assembly. They are also will be invited to participate in an exclusive leadership formation retreat, prior to the assembly, which brings them face-to-face with senior leaders from across the ministry.
Floberg joined Agnesian HealthCare in 2012 as the assistant administrator of St. Francis home. In July 2015, she was named a director at St. Francis Home and administrator of the Transitional Care Unit at St. Agnes Hospital. In 2017, she was named to her current position.
“Jenna has a passion for long-term care,” according to Doug Trost, system vice president of long-term care for SSM Health. “She is a driven leader and brings a great understanding of Agnesian HealthCare, which is a real plus. She has proven herself as a strong leader.”
Floberg earned a bachelor’s degree in Healthcare Administration from the University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire. She is a 2015 Future 5 Recipient with the Young Professionals of Fond du Lac and was awarded 2016’s Top 3 under 30 by the new North B2B magazine. She is actively involved on the advisory council for the Young Professionals of Fond du Lac, serves on the board of directors for the Boys and Girls Club of Fond du Lac, as well as a big sister, and also recently joined the Fond du Lac Charity Club.
Floberg was nominated by Sister Mary Noel Brown, of the Congregation of Sisters of St. Agnes. “Jenna leads with a contagious passion, commitment to mission, positivity and belief in the innate goodness of each person, all of which has a ripple effect on both other leaders and staff,” says Brown. “She attributes her passion for serving and giving back to others to her father, who died of cancer when she was 18.
“She acknowledges how she continually learns from mentors, including the importance of fostering relationships among colleagues, trust, being there for those she supervises without holding their hands and simultaneously holding them accountable, allowing them to learn from mistakes and celebrating successes.”
Floberg is looking forward to representing Agnesian HealthCare and SSM Health in June.
“Receiving a 2019 Tomorrow’s Leader honor through CHA is incredibly humbling,” Floberg says. “I view my work as more than just a job and believe it to be my calling so to receive an honor like this was quite a surprise. I am proud to work for an organization like Agnesian HealthCare, as a member of SSM Health, that empowers their employees to lead with a mission focus.
“My personal beliefs and values align heavily with what our organization stands for and I feel that has allowed me to be successful in what I do,” Floberg adds. “I am really looking forward to representing Agnesian HealthCare, and specifically our long-term care division, at the CHA Assembly in June.”
