Largo, FL - Largo Medical Center is pleased to announce Amy Russell, RN as our new Chief Nursing Officer (CNO). She brings a wealth of clinical knowledge to the hospital including more than 15 years of experience with HCA Healthcare.
“Amy has a proven track record of effectively leading complex clinical environments,” said Adam Rudd, Chief Executive Officer at Largo Medical Center. “She has always been able to implement key patient care processes that lead to great performance in patient, physician, and staff experience as well as engagement. I know she will make a difference.”
Russell comes to us from HCA’s Southern Hills Hospital in Las Vegas where she is serving as the Chief Nursing Officer. While there she has reduced nursing turnover, decreased hospital acquired infections, and moved patient experience to the top quartile.
“I am incredibly honored to join the Largo team. I am inspired by the nursing staff’s talent, dedication, and compassion,” said Russell. “I believe working to continue to grow the hospital with my new Largo colleagues is such an amazing opportunity.”
Amy received her BSN from University of Illinois and Masters in Nursing from Walden University. Her first day at Largo Medical Center is planned for July 1. Amy is relocating to the Largo area with her husband, Peter, and their daughter. They are welcoming a new child to the family in April.
