Marilyn Margolis, MN, RN, NEA-BC, vice president of operations and chief nursing officer (CNO) at Emory Johns Creek Hospital, has been named interim CEO of the hospital. This comes after former Emory Johns Creek CEO Craig McCoy was appointed CEO of Emory Saint Joseph's Hospital, effective Sept. 1.
Margolis has held the positions of VP of operations and CNO at Emory Johns Creek Hospital since 2011. Prior to that, she served in various positions at Emory including: director of nursing for Emory Healthcare's Emergency Services, director of nursing for neurosciences at Emory University Hospital and director of nursing operations at Emory University Hospital. Margolis began her career at Emory in 1982, and has spent more than 30 years caring for patients, teaching students and developing innovative patient safety models and nurse retention models.
While Margolis assumes her interim CEO role, Heather Redrick, MHA, BSN, RN, director of the Emory Johns Creek Hospital ICU and Observation Unit, will serve as interim chief nursing officer. Redrick will oversee nursing operations in the catheterization lab, emergency department, and medical and surgical floors, among other duties.
"I am honored and excited to serve as interim CEO of Emory Johns Creek Hospital," says Margolis. "Our goal is to make the hospital run smoothly and seamlessly during this transition time."
