Tenet Healthcare has named a new chief nursing officer to oversee its hospitals in Worcester, Framingham, and Natick, while its former nursing executive departs to take on a role at ForHealth Consulting at UMass Chan Medical School.
Denise Kvapil will take on the role for Saint Vincent Hospital in Worcester hospital and the Massachusetts market for Texas-based parent company Tenet, which operates MetroWest Medical Center in Framingham and Natick, according to a Thursday press release from Saint Vincent.
Former CNO Jay Prosser is leaving the role to become executive director for the Massachusetts Nursing Council for Workforce Sustainability, commissioned by the Executive Office of Health and Human Services and operated by Worcester-based UMass Chan’s consulting division, ForHealth, where he will focus on statewide nursing workforce initiatives.
Kvapil was previously chief nursing and operations officer at Tenet-owned Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center in Florida.
“I’m excited to have Denise as a member of our leadership team,” Carolyn Jackson, CEO of Saint Vincent and Tenet’s Massachusetts market, said in the press release. “She is an experienced nurse leader who has successfully driven improvements in nursing culture, quality, safety, and patient satisfaction.”
Kvapil earned a bachelor’s degree in nursing and a master’s degree in nursing from Rutgers University in New Jersey and South University in Georgia. She is a veteran of the United States Marine Corps.
