St. Peter’s Health Partners nurse Carrie Hogan, MS, ANP-C, who serves as Siena College’s director of health services, has been named to serve on a committee of the Joint Commission, an independent organization that accredits and certifies more than 21,000 health care organizations and programs across the country.
Hogan will represent college health offices that are affiliated with accredited hospitals as a member of the Ambulatory Care Professional and Technical Advisory Committee during her two-year term, beginning on Jan. 1, 2016. Ms. Hogan was nominated for the post by the American College Health Association, a national advocacy organization advancing the health of college students. She has been the director of Siena’s Health Services since 2004.
Siena College’s Health Services program partnered with St. Peter’s Health Partners in 1993, and is staffed by board-certified nurse practitioners, a physician’s assistant, registered nurses and a physician consultant. They provide same-day care and preventative medical services to students throughout the school year.
Siena is one of only two colleges in New York with a campus health center affiliated with a Joint Commission-accredited hospital.
“Siena provides exceptional academics for our students, and we believe it’s important to provide exceptional preventative and ambulatory health services to them as well,” Ms. Hogan said. “I’m looking forward to this appointment as both an opportunity to learn, and a chance to focus on the future of health care for college students.”
“Carrie is a talented nurse and a gifted administrator, and we congratulate her for being appointed to serve on the Joint Commission’s Ambulatory Care Professional and Technical Advisory Committee,” said Judy Gray, vice president for human resources/shared services at St. Peter’s Health Partners. “With nearly 30 years of nursing experience at Siena, St. Peter’s Hospital, and in other settings, Carrie’s tremendous insight and compassion will greatly benefit the Joint Commission and its mission to improve our nation’s health care.”
Maryellen Gilroy, Ed.D., vice president for student affairs at Siena, congratulated Hogan on her appointment. “For those of us who know and work with Carrie, it’s no surprise that she was selected to represent college health centers before this important accrediting organization. Her knowledge and skill are only surpassed by her compassion and concern for the students.”
Hogan joined Siena as an adult nurse practitioner in 2002, and was named director of health services in 2004. She began her career in health care in 1985 as a staff nurse at St. Peter’s Hospital. She went on to serve as community health nurse and supervising community health nurse for the hospital’s home care department. She also served as quality care coordinator for the medical administrative services division of St. Peter’s Hospital and quality improvement specialist/admissions coordinator at St. Peters Health Care Services’ McAuley Residence.
Hogan received her bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in nursing from the State University of New York Institute of Technology at Utica-Rome.
