Interim Director of Surgical Services

The candidate presents with 40 years of surgical services experience, with the last 12 as an interim/consultant.  She has worked as both a director/manager and educator.  Her environments have ranged from small rural to large academic, as well as ASCs.  In a recent engagement as an Educator, she worked with a new OB Director to train OB nurses on the OR.


The candidate describes her clinical strengths as a broad-based knowledge and has done virtually all case types. She still spends time in the OR as an on-the-floor leader.  From an administrative standpoint, she has excellent communication skills across the organization, including physicians and administration.  Also considers regulatory compliance a strength and has successfully led Joint Commission and CMS surveys.


She talked about her management style as one that is characterized by an open-door policy, visible and on-the-floor. She is not a micro-manager but rather prefers to surround herself with good people and let them do their job, while expecting them to keep her informed.  She is a mentor and enjoys developing staff.
