Jessica Logsdon, MHS, MHA, PA-C, was promoted to senior director of Physician Assistant Services at BWH earlier this month.
In her new role, Logsdon continues to serve as the primary contact for Physician Assistant Services (PAS) across BWH. She supports efforts to recruit and retain highly skilled physician assistants at BWH by collaborating with senior leaders and others across the organization.
Logsdon joined BWH in 2005 as a physician assistant (PA) in the Department of Neurosurgery. In 2011, she became chief physician assistant. Before her appointment as director of PAS in 2016, Logsdon worked on the inpatient floor in the Neurosciences Intermediate Unit and in the Neurosurgical Intensive Care Unit. She currently still works in the Neurosurgical ICU on an as-needed basis.
Earlier in her career, Logsdon served as associate director for Performance Improvement after completing several BWH-sponsored programs, including the Clinical Process Improvement Program, the Brigham Care Redesign Incubator and Startup Program (BCRISP) and the Brigham Leadership Program at Harvard Business School.
“Jessica has done a superb job leading our PA program,” said Stan Ashley, MD, chief medical officer. “She has been an important resource for the hospital throughout her tenure and we are confident her continued leadership of our PA professionals will strengthen Physician Assistant Services.”
Logsdon earned her master’s in health science physician assistant from Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Conn., and her master’s in health care administration from Simmons College in Boston.
