Medical City Fort Worth Chief Nursing Officer (CNO) Damita Williams, RN, EdD, has been named to DFW’s “The Great 100 Nurses” list for excellence in nursing.
Williams’ career in healthcare spans more than 30 years. Prior to joining the leadership team in Fort Worth, she held several chief nursing officer positions, including HCA Healthcare’s Methodist Hospital Campus in San Antonio. In addition to her service in healthcare, Williams serves as an adjunct faculty member for Indiana Wesleyan University in the doctorate in organizational leadership program.
Community service is a passion for Williams, as she has served more than a decade as director of clinic operations for Hope International Ministries Inc. and its medical missions to the Dominican Republic. She also currently serves on TCU Nursing’s Professional Advisory Board.
“This honor recognizes the excellent leadership and compassionate care that Damita demonstrates at Medical City Fort Worth, in our DFW community and even in the global community,” said Medical City Fort Worth CEO Jyric Sims.
Williams joins 24 other nurses from Medical City Healthcare recognized this year as part of The Great 100 Nurses, the largest number in the healthcare system’s history. More than 750 North Texas nurses were nominated by peers, patients or physicians and selected because they are role models, leaders, compassionate caregivers and significant contributors to the nursing profession.
The honored nurses will be recognized during the 2018 DFW Great 100 Nurses Celebration at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas on April 18.
