LifePoint Health®, a leading healthcare company dedicated to Making Communities Healthier®, today announced the appointments of Ellen M. Hunt, JD and Michelle Rigby, CFE, CHC, to newly created leadership roles in the organization's Ethics and Compliance Department.

They each bring more than 20 years of compliance experience to the organization.

"Ellen and Michelle are seasoned compliance professionals, and we are thrilled to welcome them to the LifePoint family," said Lisa Estrada, senior vice president and chief compliance officer of LifePoint Health.

Prior to her time at AARP, she served in a number of compliance leadership roles, including as VP, compliance at U.S. Foodservice, Inc., and VP, compliance operations at Health Care Service Corporation, dba Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois, Montana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas. Hunt received her juris doctor degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago's John Marshall Law School. She serves on the advisory boards for the Notre Dame Deloitte Center for Ethical Leadership, Loyola University Chicago School of Law's Center for Compliance Studies, Compliance Week and the Quorum Initiative. She writes on topics related to ethics and compliance and is a frequent presenter at national conferences.
