Message from Dale Chief Nurse Executive & Vice President of Patient Care Services  February 4, 2021
Dear Colleagues,
Last week’s Nursing Grand Rounds (NGR), with almost 200 livestream attendees, was an engaging interprofessional discussion recapping the work SHC’s many teams have completed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This presentation, entitled “In this Together: SHC’s Clinical Response to COVID-19,” was a collaborative discussion with 12 presenters and 2 moderators, representing just the tip of the iceberg of the diligent efforts of the past year and onward. Though one hour is not nearly enough time to showcase the dedication and hard work of these interprofessional teams, I am thankful that the NGR platform could provide a glimpse into SHC’s robust interprofessional collaboration while battling COVID-19.

At SHC we continue to demonstrate our commitment to structural empowerment through a multitude of professional development programs. One of these programs is the Leadership and Management Academy (LAMA), which just celebrated the graduation of 21 participants from Cohort 2. SHC is dedicated to elevating our transformational leaders through this six-month competency-based program that facilitates role transitions for new interprofessional mid-career leaders, builds peer support networks, and supports growth in leadership abilities. Congratulations to Cohort 2 on this step in their leadership journey! LAMA Cohort 3 will begin in March. LAMA Cohort 4 registration will be open soon; please stay tuned for more information.
Lastly, it is with great privilege that I announce that Sharon Hampton, PhD, RN, has been promoted to the role of Inpatient, Associate Chief Nursing Officer (ACNO). Dr. Sharon Hampton holds a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from San Jose State University, a Master of Science in Nursing from the University of Phoenix, and a Doctor of Nursing Philosophy in Nursing from the Texas Women’s University. Sharon has over 30 years of experience, has held multiple leadership roles here at Stanford, and is currently sharing her expertise in Stanford Medicine’s quest to improve health equity throughout our organization. Please join me in congratulating Dr. Hampton on her new role. 
Please continue to Be safe, Be smart, Be Kind; thank you for all that you do!
With respect and admiration,
Dale Beatty, DNP, RN, NEA-BC Chief Nurse Executive and VP of Patient Care Services
