MOBILE, Ala. -- Casie Crawford was recently promoted to Director of Clinical Resources at USA Children's & Women's Hospital in Mobile.
Crawford has been with the hospital for more than 11 years, and during this time, she has served in a variety of roles including staff nurse in Pediatrics, Pediatric Nurse Educator, Pediatric Nurse Practitioner with Pediatric Hematology/Oncology, and Special Projects Coordinator.
She has also worked as an adjunct faculty member for the University of South Alabama (USA) College of Nursing, instructing undergraduate practicum students.
Crawford was integral in the formation of the Professional Nursing Council, a shared governance council that began in September 2015, at the hospital. This group “provides bedside nurses with the opportunity to be involved in the decision-making process that affects nursing practice and improves patient care,” according to Crawford.
“Casie has been involved with multiple projects and hospital-wide initiatives determined by organizational needs,” said Scotty Roberson, assistant administrator and chief nursing officer at USA Children's & Women's Hospital. “Her hard work and dedication have brought many projects to fruition. Her ability to effectively communicate, collaborate and connect our clinical and ancillary departments will be invaluable in her new role as director of clinical resources.”
In this new role, Crawford will work closely with selected departments and nurse practitioners to facilitate the coordination and flow of patient care through the facility. She will continue to be involved with hospital-wide initiatives and continue to supervise the Nurse Administrators, chair the P&P committee, co-chair the system-wide policy committee, provide administrative support for nursing lead initiatives and lead the Cerner clinical/interdisciplinary advancement to implementation.
Crawford earned graduate and undergraduate degrees from the nursing programs at USA. She performed her nursing practicum on the pediatric floor and has been with the health system ever since.
“I have always appreciated the teaching environment that promotes learning opportunities for all disciplines,” Crawford said. “As a Children's & Women's Hospital employee, you are part of a healthcare team that exhibits passion and dedication for providing patients and families with high-quality, evidenced-based patient care.”
