Tammy Brooks has been named the chief nursing officer for the soon to open Novant Health Mint Hill Medical Center.

The 50-bed facility being built in the Mint Hill area, is scheduled to open in October of 2018.

Brooks has worked with Novant Health for many years and during that time has held various leadership roles.

“It’s humbling and exciting. There really aren’t words to describe,” Brooks said when describing her thoughts about being named to the new position.

She looks forward to soon starting in the position and the new hospital being built. She said that to her, the Mint Hill area is a lot similar to Fairmont, W. Va., where she grew up. With the new hospital opening soon, she is happy to soon be able to provide healthcare services to the local community.

“It’s providing healthcare to a place that doesn’t have it, that is a community full of people just like my family,” Brooks said.

Brooks joined Novant Health 15 years ago as a Coronary Care Unit (CCU) nurse after graduating from the Presbyterian Hospital School of Nursing. Since then she has worked as the assistant manager of invasive cardiology, nurse manager of non-invasive cardiology and the director of nursing of the Novant Health Heart & Vascular Institute.

Joy Greear, the president of the soon to open Mint Hill Medical Center, said she has worked with Brooks in the past and felt that her past experiences, skills and abilities made her a good fit for the chief nursing officer position.

“She’s a big picture thinker and is able to get out of silos and really see the impact on others and not just the impact on one team,” Greear said.

As the chief nursing officer, Brooks will be working with much of the new staff coming into the hospital. To her, Brooks is a good mentor and will be able to work well with the new staff, Greear said.

The chief nursing officer is one of the latest leadership roles for the new hospital to be filled. Other job opportunities are being listed on the Novant Health website and all are expected to be listed by the end of the month, Greear said.
