Bates County Memorial Hospital is pleased to announce the promotion of Jennifer Klinksick, RN, to Chief Nursing Officer. Jennifer assumed her new role on June 1. The position was previously held by Rebecca Tarver, RN, who retired after a 13-year career at BCMH.
Jennifer joined BCMH as a staff nurse in 2007 and has been promoted several times, assuming leadership roles in nurse management. Her most recent position was Nurse Manager for the inpatient and critical care units.
“I am excited to start this new journey and to help others grow in the organization,” Jennifer said. “My career as both a registered nurse and as a nurse manager at Bates County Memorial Hospital has shown me how truly special our community is. I look forward to working closely with the BCMH leadership team to continue seeking every opportunity to improve the health of our community.”
