Beth Houlahan, MSN, RN, CENP, Vice President of Patient Care Services and Chief Nursing OfficerAt the UW Hospital and Clinics, we believe that nursing is both an art and a science. UW Hospital and Clinics nurses are not only highly accomplished clinicians with extensive knowledge about diagnostic and therapeutic modalities, they are also deeply committed to delivering evidence-based care in a manner sensitive to the patient's and family's needs.


We have developed, described and applied a professional practice model within the framework of clinical practice, leadership and professional development. The very core of this model is the relationship among the nurse, patient, family and community.


The nursing professionals at UW Hospital and Clinics are distinguished by their keen minds, caring hearts and commitment. To continue and enhance our dedication to excellence in nursing, we endorse the mission, vision, and values that support nursing and the organization. I invite you to spend time learning more about the priorities we have established.


Warm Regards,


Beth Houlahan, MSN, RN, CENP

Senior Vice President Patient Care Services, Chief Nursing Officer
