Burrows named new Chief Nursing Officer

An experienced nursing leader with a passion for improving every patient’s visit to the hospital has been named as the new chief nursing officer at Providence St. Vincent Medical Center.

Jennifer Burrows will oversee nursing care at the 523-bed medical center with a team of nearly 1,500 nurses and (clinical caregivers/ancillary staff.)

“Providence has a great reputation for its rich history — more than 150 years of caring for the poor and vulnerable, while at the same time being proactive about the future of health care with a care delivery model that puts the patient first,” she said.

Burrows was most recently vice president of patient care services at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, a 525-bed medical center in Norfolk, Virginia. She began her career as a staff nurse in labor and delivery, but was quickly drawn to leadership roles where she could truly shape the way patients are cared for.

“We are thrilled to have Jennifer joining our team,” said Janice Burger, chief executive Providence St. Vincent. “I am confident Jennifer’s leadership will help us continue our tradition of clinical excellence while providing patients the safe, compassionate care Providence is known for.”
