Baenen tapped to lead Bellin Health Psychiatric Center


GREEN BAY – Sharla Baenen, former director of nursing at Bellin Health, recently was named president of Bellin Psychiatric Center.

Baenen had been the psychiatric center’s interim president since September.

Baenen, Bellin’s director of nursing since 2008, was selected as the psychiatric center’s president due to her solid leadership skills and expansive health care experience, said Chris Woleske, executive vice president and general counsel.
Baenen is a former Bellin College student, having earned her master’s degree in Nursing Administration from the now Bellevue-based college.

She earned her bachelor’s degree in nursing from Marquette University in Milwaukee and began her career at Bellin Health as a pediatric registered nurse.
