Welcomes LaTosha Mackey as new Chief Quality Officer!
LaTosha Mackey obtained her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, AZ, and a Master of Science in Nursing with an emphasis in Leadership and Management at Walden University in Minneapolis, MN. She brings to Lake Area Medical Center 15 years of nursing experience, with 5 of those years in healthcare leadership. Prior to arriving at Lake Area Medical Center she served as Quality Director/Infection Prevention & Control Director for Clear Lake Regional Medical Center in Webster, TX, and most recently as the Director of Operations for SouthernCare Hospice in Lake Charles.
“I’m very excited to be working at Lake Area Medical Center”, states Mrs. Mackey. “Partly because I delivered my three children at LAMC and witnessed first-hand the quality care and patient focused attention that’s given. Additionally, I’d always heard it was a great place to work and now I understand why that is.”
According to Mrs. Mackey, “What I like most about working in the Quality field is analyzing the data and sharing that information with all hospital staff to continue to create the safest environment possible for our patients, visitors, physicians and employees. I feel the skills I bring to Lake Area Medical Center include: a thorough understanding of the nursing arena, high competence in implementing and monitoring performance improvement teams, proficient in resolving issues and good communication skills.”
“We are very pleased to welcome Mrs. Mackey to our leadership team,” says Bryan S. Bateman, Chief Executive Officer at Lake Area Medical Center. “LaTosha’s knowledge, clinical experience and compassion for our patients and staff made her the ideal candidate for this position.”
Mrs. Mackey is married with five children ages 14, 11, 9, 6 and 4. In her free time she enjoys reading, shopping and spending time with her family.
