System Manager of Regulatory and Accreditation Compliance
Southern Illinois Healthcare, a not-for-profit healthcare system, is dedicated to promoting the health and well being of all of the people within the communities they serve. With over 3,000 employees, physicians and volunteers, SIH is as committed to quality health services today as it was when its first hospital opened in 1875, making this a reality by treating patients in SIH facilities in collaboration with some of America's best hospitals.
I am the System Accreditation Compliance Coordinator for Southern Illinois Healthcare. We have three hospitals within our system. We continue to demonstrate growth and stability within our communities. I assist Corp leadership, hospital leadership, managers, supervisors, and staff with regulatory standard compliance and all Joint Commission related activities. I chair the System Patient Safety Committee, facilitate several additional system and hospital-level meetings and oversee multiple short-term and long-term projects. I assist leaders and managers with action plans to comply with regulatory bodies. I am responsible for tracking action plans, monitoring deadlines and evaluating indicator performance for effectiveness. In January 2013, I passed my Certified Joint Commission Accreditation Professional exam.
