Hospital appoints new chief nursing officer

Newly hired Chief Nursing Officer Erin Wooley RN, MSN, CENP, arrived at WhidbeyHealth in January with 12 years of leadership experience in acute inpatient and outpatient care under her stethoscope.

Erin enters a room with a big smile, palpable positive energy and an undeniable “how-can-I-help-you” attitude, the health care system reported in a press release.

A native Texan, Wooley received her bachelor of science in nursing from Tarleton State University and a master of science in nursing administration from the University of Texas at Arlington. She also achieved a nursing executive certification from the American Organization of Nurse Leaders and was honored to be recognized with the “2018 Making a Difference” award at Estes Park Health.

According to the press release, Wooley understands the importance of access to health care in rural settings. For the past six years, she served as the director of medical/surgery, case management, outpatient Infusion, wound care and respiratory therapy at Estes Park Health in Estes Park, Colo., a 23-bed critical access hospital.

“Estes Park Health is where my passion for critical access/rural health care began,” Wooley said in a press release.

Wooley said she served as the interim chief nursing officer during a period of transition for the organization.

Wooley said she saw the commitment of WhidbeyHealth staff from her first contact.
