Kelsey Haswell, a lean improvement specialist for Methodist Health System, was recently named one of the Omaha Jaycees' Ten Outstanding Young Omahans (TOYO).

Now in its 87th year, TOYO honors individuals age 21-40 who show exemplary commitment to improving the Omaha community through selfless acts of kindness while excelling professionally.

Haswell’s proudest accomplishment professionally was expanding Methodist's lung cancer screening program, a top 10 internationally ranked program. She has also been fundamental in the foundation and growth of Methodist Emerging Professionals, a group that is committed to growing talent and making an impact in the community. Her latest focus at Methodist has been transforming care delivery though projects to optimize patient outcomes using Lean principles.

Through her service to the greater Omaha community, Haswell lives out her personal mission to boldly lead with her heart, empathize with those who need to be understood, spread warmth and create a community where everyone has the opportunity to thrive. She is actively involved in the Junior League of Omaha, the Pay it Forward Fund, the YP Summit, Friends of Nebraska Children and the American College of Healthcare Executives local chapter board. She currently serves as a board member for the Greater Omaha Chamber, a member of the public policy committee and the chairwoman of the YP Council.
