Bingham Healthcare appoints new NOC
BLACK FOOT, ID – Bingham Healthcare is pleased to announce the appointment of a new Chief Nursing Officer (CNO). Their two-month long search produced fantastic candidates – some internally, several locally and many nationally.
“During the interview process, it was great to see and hear the management perspectives of leading nurses from across the country,” said Jake Erickson, chief executive officer (CEO), Bingham Healthcare. “I was particularly impressed by the quality of the candidates who applied internally. We have amazing people in our organization with world-class depth of skills and experience.
Last week, a group of Bingham Healthcare nurse leaders and the Bingham administrative team conducted final interviews with three candidates. Bingham is pleased to announce that Holly Davis, RN, BSN, MBA has been named the new Director of Nursing for Bingham Healthcare.
As CNO, Ms. Davis oversees clinical nursing operations throughout the healthcare system, which includes Bingham Memorial Hospital, Grove Creek Medical Center, and numerous outpatient and urgent care practices throughout the region.
“I am thrilled to lead our care teams at Bingham Healthcare and to stand alongside our incredible nurses as we care for our community,” said Ms. Davis. “The future of rural nursing is bright! I will work hard to provide a safe, skilled and supportive work environment for all of our employees. »
Holly began her nursing career at Bingham Memorial Hospital in 1995, where she completed her rural nursing capstone project. It was during this time that she developed a passion for rural health care. In addition to rural nursing, Holly has experience in large metropolitan health systems in Las Vegas, as well as busy hospitals in Idaho and Montana. She has worked as a registered nurse in medical/surgical units, acute and postpartum care units and numerous perioperative departments.
Holly earned an Executive MBA from Boise State University and has held various leadership positions as a nurse. She is passionate about training new nurses and has donated thousands of hours in her career as a nurse educator and preceptor. Looping, Holly returned to Bingham Healthcare just over five years ago to work as Nurse Director of Bingham’s Total Joint Program, where she helped the organization earn the coveted Blue Distinction designation for that program. Most recently, she served as Director of Quality at Bingham, where she oversaw quality and risk management programs as well as population health and value-based care contracts.
Holly grew up working alongside her family on a farm and ranch in Mud Lake, Idaho. As a multi-generational Idahoan, Ms. Davis’ roots run deep. She and her husband, Zane, operate a performance horse training business in Blackfoot. She has three children. She is very involved in local 4-H programs and volunteers her time to help instill leadership skills in the next generation.
“This NOC promotion comes at a time when change in healthcare is accelerating at an unprecedented rate,” said Erickson. “In making this decision, I believe Holly has the nursing experience, interpersonal and leadership skills, and strategic thinking that will be needed to lead Bingham Healthcare’s incredible nursing teams into the future.
“She stood out among the candidates as the top choice for CNO at Bingham Healthcare,” Mr. Erickson continued. “In addition to her vast experience, she holds herself to the highest levels of responsibility and quality. She exudes compassion, empathy and understanding. And she embodies the core values we seek to instill in Bingham’s organizational culture. Please join me in congratulating Holly on her promotion as we welcome her as head nurse.
