Monday, September 10, 2018
Jeniece Roane, MS, RN, NE-BC, has accepted the position of Associate Vice President of Operations and Associate Chief Nursing Officer at Children's Hospital of Richmond at VCU. This new leadership position plays an essential role on the CHoR executive team and within VCU Health's leadership structure. The expansion of our leadership team is an example of VCU Health's dedication to making pediatrics a priority and CHoR's continued growth to advance children's health.
Jeniece's extensive pediatric nursing and leadership career will help drive her work with our teams to enhance the patient experience and improve quality outcomes across our full continuum of care. She will be critical in crafting the vision for our new inpatient tower and will lead the execution of operational change for the new facility. Jeniece will continue to work with our quality teams to drive quality performance to the top decile.
Jeniece is an outspoken advocate for children and a highly respected and trusted colleague. Her 25 years of pediatric health care experience, leadership prowess and genuine passion for improving the lives of children and their families make her an ideal candidate for this position. Jeniece has successfully led CHoR teams and managed impressive clinical advancement initiatives as Interim Vice President of Children's Services, Director of Women's and Children's Nursing, Nurse Manager of the PICU and as a nurse clinician and nurse educator – all the while never losing focus on what the health care journey is like for our patients, families and team members.
Jeniece holds a master and bachelor of science in nursing from VCU School of Nursing and she is currently pursuing her doctorate of philosophy in nursing. She continues to advocate for our community's children in her personal time as an active member on the boards of Ronald McDonald House Charities and Family Lifeline.
Excellence is the product of day-to-day preparedness, and I have no doubt that in this new role Jeniece will help lead us toward our goal of becoming a top 20 children's hospital by 2022.
