Jennifer Lohse

Vice president, general counsel, and chief compliance officer, Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation


In 2014, Jennifer Lohse was recruited to lead Hazelden’s in-house legal department. In her first week on the job, she steered the merger of Hazelden and the Betty Ford Center, securing the regulatory and governance approvals to integrate the two entities into the nation’s leading nonprofit addiction treatment provider. More recently, she spearheaded industry reforms aimed at protecting consumers from unscrupulous practices.

At the pandemic’s onset, Lohse led the Center City-based foundation in national care system initiatives to protect patient and staff safety, tackle supply-chain interruptions, and prepare for potential surges in infection.
