Kelly Nierstedt, BSN, MSN, was named president of Winnie Palmer Hospital, effective July 9. She comes to Winnie Palmer from Children's Hospital of Illinois in Peoria, where she served as president. She previously served as a staff and charge nurse in labor and delivery at Hackensack (N.J.) University Medical Center.
