Meet our leaders
Our nursing leaders have dedicated their lives to the practice of nursing and are leading the way in innovative, high-quality and compassionate care. Meet some of our nursing leaders:
Jane Englebright, RN, PhD, CENP, FAAN
Chief Nursing Executive and Senior Vice President
“In creating and sustaining HCA’s nursing community, we are dedicating resources to ensure nurses realize that in addition to being a valued professional in their workplace, they are a group with a great and noble purpose. Our first and most important task is to build that awareness to inspire and strengthen our community of nurses.”
Dr. Jane Englebright began her nursing career with HCA in 1992 as a critical care nurse at Lewisville Medical Center in Texas. It was in this role that she discovered her passion for using technology to improve the practice of nursing, and in 1996, Dr. Englebright became chief nursing officer (CNO) of HCA's San Antonio Community Hospital.
Her dedication to advancing nursing through innovative practices led her to be recruited to HCA's corporate quality department. There she founded technologies implemented at the enterprise level to improve nurse communication.
In 2007, Jane became the first enterprise chief nursing executive. In this role, she provides leadership for approximately 81,000 nurses working in HCA hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers and other sites of care.
As a leader in the field of nursing, Jane is actively involved in shaping nursing at a national level. She serves as the at-large nursing representative to The Joint Commission’s Board of Commissioners and chairs the Board of Governors of the National Patient Safety Foundation.
Sammie Mosier, RN, DHA, MA, BSN, NE-BC, CMSRN, BC
Vice President and Assistant Chief Nursing Executive
"My overarching goal is to partner with leadership and nurses to strengthen the quality of nursing care for all of HCA. Our nurses are challenged with demanding tasks; we want to ensure they have all the necessary tools and resources needed to enhance their workflow."
Sammie Mosier began her career as a nurse with HCA’s Frankfurt Regional Medical Center where she served as a staff nurse before getting promoted to a director role, and eventually assuming the position of chief nursing officer. During her time as CNO, Frankfurt Regional Medical Center was granted Magnet status, a prestigious distinction recognizing high-quality care and excellence in nursing.
Today Sammie provides leadership for the nursing scope of practice for all lines of business and defines clinical initiatives. She has responsibilities for development and execution of the Excellence in Medical-Surgical Nursing clinical agenda, including the Unit of Distinction program. Sammie also oversees the nursing evidenced-based clinical documentation (EBCD) content throughout the HCA enterprise.
Annabaker Garber, RN, PhD
Chief Nursing Informatics Officer
“At HCA, I’ve found people are willing to think outside the box and do some very creative things with technology. Everyone from direct-care nurses to corporate leaders understands that nurses are the key to high-quality care and patient satisfaction, and that’s been thrilling to see.”
Dr. Annabaker Garber is the chief nursing informatics officer at HCA. As chief nursing informatics officer, she is responsible for setting the strategic direction for nursing informatics across the enterprise to advance the practice of nursing and improve the patient experience.
Previously, Annabaker served as director of clinical informatics at Massachusetts General Hospital and chief nursing informatics officer at Swedish Medical Center in Seattle. Her previous experience provided a deep understanding of the relationships between clinical practice, technology, processes, cost and efficiency for the improvement of patient care.
Dan Roberts, RN, PhD, ACNP
AVP Nursing Performance Management
“The documentation of patient care, by nurses, is valuable to the science of nursing. I’m here to ensure there is an easy pathway for all we are doing around technology and data capture to inform and benefit the nurses providing bedside care. It is important for them to see the value in the work they do every day, providing excellent patient care.”
In the role of AVP for nursing performance management, Dan Roberts works to advance the HCA nursing strategy through the application of applied data analytics, performance dashboarding and clinical research.
Throughout his career, Dan has worked to advance the practice of medicine in a variety of leadership roles. Most recently he worked at Stony Brook University Hospital where he served in several leadership positions including associate chief quality officer, data and analytics scientist and associate director of nursing.
