Susan McDonald was named chief nursing officer.

Laurie Conkright will serve as vice president and chief nursing officer at St. Elizabeth Edgewood, Covington, and Grant.

Sara Briggs was promoted to vice president and chief nursing officer of Florence and Fort Thomas. 

Angela Roberts joined the St. Elizabeth Healthcare team as chief nursing officer following the recent transition of Highpoint Health in Lawrenceburg, Indiana to St. Elizabeth Dearborn.

“I have no doubt that the leadership skills and experience of each of our new Chief Nursing Officers will serve them and the organization well as they transition into these new positions,” said Vera Hall, chief nursing executive at St. Elizabeth Healthcare. “They each bring a depth of leadership experience to their new roles. Their expertise and passion for the exceptional care of our patients make me confident that they will continue to lead us in our mission of delivering the best quality of care and service for our patients and their families in an environment free from harm.”
