The CNO Council is a champion for HCA’s Clinical Agenda. The CNO Council provides guidance and input into corporate decisions related to patient care, including operational issues and human resource issues. The CNO Council supports harmonizing and coordinating clinical initiatives across levels of the organization. The Council provides guidance to prioritization, sequencing, and resource impacts of clinical projects that cross corporate organizational lines, including Clinical Services Group, Risk Management, Human Resources, and Operations.

The CNO Council provides insight and awareness to national trends in nursing and patient care that are of interest to HCA.

Each CNO Council member provides regional leadership for corporate initiatives and serves as a communication link between corporate, division, and facility. Members work collaboratively with the Division President, the Vice President of Quality, the Division Director of Pharmacy and the Division Director of Case Management to advance HCA’s Clinical Agenda within the division.
