Gila Regional Medical Center's chief nurse resigns: 4 notes

Peggy White, chief of nursing at Gila Regional Medical Center in Silver City, N.M., resigned Feb. 4, according to a Silver City Daily Press report.

Four notes:

1. Ms. White told the Silver City Daily Press that she felt the hospital was not focused on the community and that management was not listening to her ideas.

"We should be reinvesting in the hospital, instead of spending money on trying to get new customers," she told the Daily Press on Friday. "My philosophy is more along the lines of a community hospital. I felt what I was bringing to the table wasn't seen as valuable."

2. Specifically, Ms. White noted that she wanted to expand the women's center, which had been discussed in the past; however hospital CEO Taffy Arias said they changed expansion plans due to finances. The hospital now plans to open new family care satellite clinics.

3. Additionally, Doug Oakes, director of marketing, said, "Everyone at the hospital is 100 percent focused on patient care," according to the report.

4. Ms. White became chief nurse four years ago.
