James K. Elrod Department of Health Administration

LSU Shreveport's James K. Elrod Department of Health Administration is named in honor of the Willis-Knighton Health System President and Chief Executive Officer who served as the driving force behind establishing health administration offerings at the University. Mr. Elrod was compelled to provide extensive funding for this Department in an effort to ensure the existence of a qualified pool of executives available for service in the health industry of northern Louisiana and beyond. His generosity has elevated the status and stature of the Department's 100% online Master of Health Administration (MHA) program. Mr. Elrod's contributions continue, thanks to his formal role as advisor to the Department's Chair, Dr. John L. Fortenberry, Jr.
