Wellness Center Manager
I have management and clinical expertise in hospital inpatient, outpatient, acute rehabilitation, ancillary support services, home health, transitional care, performance improvement and risk management. I have created cultural environments of autonomy and accountability and have improved patient outcomes through adherence to evidence based practice standards.     As an experienced healthcare leader I transform organizational cultures by focusing on improving the recruitment and retention of nurses and by recognizing improvements in patient, physician, and employee satisfaction. I have a strong ability to develop and maintain positive relationships with a variety of audiences from Board of Director members and medical staff personnel to community leaders.
