Dr. Baldwin is currently the chief nursing executive at UCI Health in Irvine, Calif. When she joins OHSU, she will also serve as associate dean of clinical affairs at the organization's school of nursing. Dr. Baldwin will report to OHSU Health's CEO John Hunter, MD, according to a Jan. 5 news release.
