Delano Regional Medical Center recently welcomed Amy Scroggs, RN, BSN, to the executive position of Chief Nursing Officer (CNO) for the hospital.
Ms. Scroggs began her healthcare career as a physical therapy technician in New Orleans, Louisiana. She graduated nursing school in Fort Worth, Texas and was a member of Phi Theta Kappa for academic achievement. Upon graduation from nursing school, she worked in the emergency department of Parkland Health and Hospital System in Dallas, Texas as staff nurse, ER charge nurse, supervisor, and Associate Unit Manager.
After her move to Bakersfield, California in 1997, Scroggs served in local healthcare facilities as manager, director and chief nursing officer.
“Her extensive management experience and hands-on nursing care is a definite asset to the hospital and our community,” says Bahram Ghaffari, President.
Ms. Scroggs grew up as the child of an Army Lt. Col and had the opportunity to travel and experience different cultures and views of the world. This has helped her see others views more clearly and gives her the ability to work closely with patients, physicians and staff.
“I am thrilled to be a part of DRMC and look forward to working with Delano and the surrounding communities,” stated Ms. Scroggs. “The support from the staff, board and local communities has been staggering.”
