RPMH adds key members to the team

Hospital demonstrates commitment to career advancement and patient experience with recent staff appointmentsAs Rolling Plains Memorial Hospital (RPMH) continues to keep up with changes in the healthcare industry, the local healthcare provider has announced that they have filled two key positions within the organization. Ame Monroe has been appointed director of human resources. A 15-year veteran at the hospital, Monroe will leverage her expertise to advance the department and support RPMH team members through HR duties. “Filling the position after the retirement of longtime respected team member Gay Nell Cherry, Ame will play a critical role in helping the hospital to continue the strong work that Cherry has brought to the human resources department,” said Donna Boatright, administrator of RPMH. In addition her new position at RPMH, Monroe is extending her participation as director of the RPMH Auxiliary, a volunteer-based group that provides valuable help around the hospital and related events. “RPMH is by far one of the best employers in the region,” Monroe explained. “This hospital values its team members and provides many opportunities and resources necessary to advance our careers within the organization. That’s what I really love about this place.” The hospital has also added Justin Tomlin to the team as the new director of safety and special projects. Tomlin’s main duty is to focus on environmental safety for patients and employees, as well as provide oversight of Joint Commission areas of accreditation such as environmental safety, life safety code and fire safety and prevention. Although RPMH has an excellent track record of patient satisfaction, the hospital remains committed to ensuring they are doing what they can to exceed expectations for patients and visitors. As such, Tomlin will work closely with the patient experience process and assist with leadership training and development for team members. “This hospital is well respected in everything it does, and it’s such a great opportunity to join an organization with such a strong presence,” Tomlin explained. “I’m looking forward to strengthening our place in the community through not only quality of service, but via business and financial impact.” Tomlin’s participation in the hospital’s business functions will be critical as he will work to help the facility achieve maximum reimbursements via the 1115 waiver program. This important program has provided RPMH with more than $944,000 over the past year. Born and raised in Roscoe, Texas, Tomlin is married with three children. He said that his upbringing in the area and family ties is one of the reasons why he choose to work at RPMH. According to Boatright, both Monroe and Tomlin are just two examples of the important work staff members at the hospital accomplish each day. “Everyone at RPMH plays a critical part in the work that we do here at the hospital,” Boatright explained. “Having the right team members in place means that we can focus on the incredible work that we accomplish each day—and that’s making Nolan County a healthy community.” Rolling Plains Memorial Hospital is a community-focused healthcare provider serving residents in Nolan County, Texas.
