David Lord - Vice President, Operations
David Lord was born and raised right here in Escanaba. "I feel fortunate to be able to live, work and raise my family in the same community where I grew up. I appreciate the wealth of activities and safe, community-friendly environment Delta County offers," he says.
David received his Bachelor's of Science in Business Computer Information Systems from Northern Michigan University, just up the road in Marquette. He has worked for OSF for over 15 years and is currently responsible for a variety of departments including community relations, diagnostic imaging, rehabilitation, and respiratory therapy, to name a few. "I enjoy working for a Mission-oriented organization. I feel my personal beliefs align with the Sisters' Values and what they are trying to accomplish."
He enjoys traveling, boating, skiing, hunting and spending time with his wife, Kristin, and their three children, Kaitlyn, Nathan and Andrew.

James Wayne - Vice President, Finance
As one of ten children, Jim Wayne grew up in Decatur, Illinois and earned a bachelor's degree in accounting as well as an MBA from Eastern Illinois University. He migrated with his family to the Upper Peninsula in 1979 and, in 1985, joined the OSF family.
"My move to Escanaba was one of the best decisions for me and my family. The beauty of the area and its people are what really impressed me. I enjoy the rural lifestyle. The outdoor activities that I enjoy are right outside my front door. I have truly found my place of contentment here in the Upper Peninsula."
As Vice President of Finance, Jim oversees the financial services and practice operations for OSF St. Francis. When asked why he loves working for OSF, he will tell you, "It's very rewarding to work for an organization that sets the expectations for all of its employees that we are here to 'serve persons with the greatest care and love.' Nothing could be more clear, concise and motivating. The satisfaction of serving to those in our community who are in need of physical, emotional and spiritual care is 'time well spent' in my book."
During his time off, Jim enjoys spending time with his wife, Deborah, as well as their three grown sons' families. Jim participates on a number of local boards including the Medical Access Coalition of Delta & Menominee, the Upper Peninsula Health Access Coalition, and the United Way of Delta County. He also enjoys spending time outdoors including fishing and hunting.
