TrustPoint Hospital, Middle Tennessee's leading inpatient psychiatric and physical rehab hospital, has hired Tara Coleman as its new chief nursing officer.
Coleman joins the facility after most recently serving as director of nursing services at HealthTrust Purchasing Group. Prior to that, she spent 10 years at St. Thomas Rutherford Hospital, first as nurse manager before being promoted to nursing director. Her professional experience includes time as a critical care staff nurse, intensive care charge nurse, and nurse technician.
"I'm very excited for this opportunity to join the TrustPoint leadership team," Coleman said. "I am looking forward to elevating the voice of nursing and processes at the bedside, and to enhancing patient quality of care and outcomes.
Coleman has served on several system-level committees in previous roles as the voice of patient care services, such as the Nursing Informatics Council and Therapeutics Committee.
"Tara comes to us as a leader who has a proven track record of advocating for patients and staff," TrustPoint Hospital CEO Beth Goodner said. "She goes above and beyond to build dynamic teams that meet the needs of the patients in our community."
