A Message from Our Nurse Executives

From our perspective, Excela Health is an extraordinary place in which to pursue your nursing career.  From providing direct patient care to participating in quality and service excellence initiatives, our nurses take a lead role in helping us meet our mission.  Because of their commitment, we are meeting all of our quality core measures as well as meeting or exceeding patient expectations for quality care.

Daily meetings also engage our nurses to communicate with one another and other members of the multidisciplinary team in order to improve patient care continuously. Throughout the past year and a half, we have achieved much including:

• The establishment of a professional practice model for shared governance to empower direct care nurses to make decisions about their practice and take more responsibility.

• The initiation of Unit-Based Practice Councils, serving as the core structure for nursing shared governance and providing a critical forum to give all direct care nurses an opportunity to participate in shared decisional processes and outcomes specific to the needs and activities of that unit.

• The creation a new look in professional attire.

• The implementation of the new electronic medical record.

Due to these efforts and more, Excela Health has been recognized for stroke care, emergency care, cardiothoracic surgery, obstetrics and spine surgery.  We invite you to peruse the nursing opportunities at Excela Health.  Won’t you join us as we continue our journey to be the best provider of care in the area?
