Providence St. Patrick Hospital on Wednesday named Beth Hock as its new Chief Nursing Office.
Hock, who joined St. Pats in August, formerly worked at the University Medical Center of Southern Nevada. Most recently, however, she served as the interim vice president, and Chief Operating and Chief Nursing Officer, at St. James Hospital in Butte.
Hock comes to the hospital with more than 30 years of experience in nursing and hospital operations in community hospitals, long-term acute care settings, and large, integrated health systems.
She has expertise in regulatory readiness, budget management, and development and implementation of programs principled on evidence-based research and national standards.
According to the hospital, Hock has led health care organizations through accreditations, Magnet and Pathway designations, shared governance and major building projects. She has received several professional recognitions, the most recent being the Daisy Leader of the Year award and Nevada’s Nurse Advocate of the Year.
