Brief Bio

A psychiatrist by training, Dr. Hands is a skilled healthcare professional with over 25 years of experience. Since joining Ochsner in 2005, she has been responsible for overseeing all strategic planning, business development and operational components of the International Health and Multi-Organ Transplant Services. Dr. Hands has a distinguished career creating and operating new revenue programs for hospitals. She has had a crucial role in the post Katrina restructure of the Ochsner Multi-Organ Transplant Institute, leading with exceptional dedication assuring a multidisciplinary commitment to safety, quality, and the most current evidence-based practices making the Ochsner Transplant Program one of the top programs in the country.

She has also served as member of the Advisory Committee on Organ Transplantation- ACOT and is a member of the board of directors for the Alliance. Additionally, she serves on the board of the Legacy Donor Foundation in New Orleans and is a State of Louisiana representative for the Donate Life America Collaborative.

I have been involved with the Alliance for many years now at different levels. It has always been a great source of information and knowledge. It brings together all participants from the donation and transplantation world through education opportunities, the sharing of best practices and innovation. It helps me as a transplant administrator and leader and helps my team stay at the forefront of transplantation as well. It helps us focus on one common mission which is giving those who need it a second chance at life.
