Georgia system names chief nursing officer

St. Mary's Health Care System in Athens, Ga., has named Candice Frix, MSN, vice president and chief nursing officer, The Red & Black reported May 3. 

Ms. Frix will oversee a team of more than 400 nurses across the system's three hospitals in Athens, Lavonia and Greensboro, Ga.

"Our selection team was especially impressed by her track record for quality excellence as well as nurse recruitment and retention."
