GUTHRIE, Okla. – Beginning this week, two long-time Mercy co-workers have assumed new leadership positions at Mercy Hospital Logan County.
Robin Channel now serves as the director of nursing and Kim Hoisington is the new manager of the emergency department at Mercy Hospital Logan County.
Channel received her bachelor’s degree in nursing from Langston University in Langston, Oklahoma, and her master’s degree in science from the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond, Oklahoma.
She has worked at Mercy Hospital Logan County, formerly Logan Medical Center, for most of her 22-year health care career in a variety of positions, including unit coordinator, nurse technician, registered nurse in several departments, house supervisor, assistant chief nursing officer for surgery, manager of the surgery and emergency departments, and, most recently, clinical education specialist.
As a clinical education specialist, Channel worked with managers and co-workers on competency assessments, continuing education and leadership development.
Kim Hoisington received her associate’s degree in nursing from Oklahoma State University’s Oklahoma City campus.
She has almost 20 years of experience in various positions in the health care field, including medical assistant, director of nursing in Crescent, Oklahoma, and in several nursing and leadership positions over the last 15 years at Mercy Hospital Logan County, formerly Logan Medical Center. She has served as interim director of nursing for the last few months at Mercy Hospital Logan County.
“Robin and Kim have a wealth of experience and we are so glad they’re bringing their knowledge and commitment to these new roles at Mercy,” said Josh Tucker, administrator of Mercy Hospital Logan County. “They both have provided exceptional care to the citizens of Logan County for so many years and we are truly blessed to have them at Mercy. I can’t wait to see the difference they will both make in their new positions.”
