SRMC Names Williams as Permanent Nursing Chief

Feb. 15, 2008 – Blondell Williams, M.S., R.N., is now the permanent vice president for Nursing and Patient Care Services at Schneider Regional Medical Center. President and CEO Amos W. Carty Jr., had appointed her to the position on an interim basis last November, shortly after he was elevated from chief operating officer. Carty says he is very pleased that Williams eventually agreed to accept the full responsibility of the position, since he was confident of her qualifications and suitability from the start.
During recent years, Williams has supervised many aspects of hospital nursing functions as a clinical care coordinator, mainly in the emergency room, the hemodialysis unit, and the department of interventional radiology. She began her nursing career 28 years ago at the old Knud Hansen Hospital, when her specialty was obstetrics. Williams holds a Master's Degree in Nursing Administration from the University of Maryland – Baltimore.
"Patient care principles are essentially the same, but the standards of care have changed. Our goal now is to insure that, as standards evolve, we keep abreast of changes in order to implement best practices of nursing care," Williams said.
As SRMC's top nurse, Williams is in charge of all nursing services, social services and case management. Her position also places her in the rotation schedule of administrators on duty when she works a shift as the medical center's top supervising officer.
