Meet the Chief Nursing Officer: Kathy Patrick, BSN, RN
Kathy was inspired to work in health care by her mother’s ability to help and care for anyone. Kathy achieved her RN license in 1992 and began working at NMMC-Tupelo in 2000 as a Registered Nurse in the Resource Pool. After working on every single floor at NMMC-Tupelo (minus CCU and ED), Kathy transitioned to Clinical Education and then to Chief Nursing Officer at NMMC-Iuka. Kathy is grateful for the opportunity to care for friends and family members that she sees in the community every day.
Kathy and her family live on a small farm outside Iuka.
