Board of Directors

Division Vice President, Kindred Healthcare, Nevada

Linn P. Billingsley is division vice president - Las Vegas Integrated Market for Kindred Healthcare, Inc., where she is responsible for three long-term acute care (LTAC) hospitals, two skilled nursing centers, and the local Kindred homecare and hospice programs. In her 15+ years with Kindred Healthcare, Inc., a national publicly traded corporation based in Louisville, KY, Billingsley has served in a variety of administrative and executive positions in Arizona, Kentucky, California and Nevada.

Kindred's LTAC hospitals specialize in respiratory care and have the highest success rates in the nation for weaning patients off ventilator dependency. Kindred Healthcare was, in fact, founded by respiratory therapists who were concerned about the poor outcomes of ventilator-dependent patients in community hospitals. That makes support of the American Lung Association a natural partnership for Linn and her team. Billingsley is a past Board member and past Chair for the ALA of the Southwest, is currently chairing the Southern Nevada ALA's Advisory Board for the second time and the Southern Nevada ALA's Lung Force Walk. Nationally, Kindred Healthcare is a corporate sponsor of the ALA.

A Registered Nurse, Billingsley earned her BSN at Arizona State University and began her nursing career at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix. In addition to her work with the ALA, she is also an active supporter of the American Heart Association and Las Vegas Public Broadcasting. She is serving her second term as a member of the board of directors of the Nevada Hospital Association. She and her husband Max Heeman live in Blue Diamond, Nevada.
