MCH Welcomes New Director of Maternity
March 11, 2011
Tracy Stewart, RN, is the new Director of Obstetrics at Madison County Hospital (MCH).
Tracy's 13 years of experience working in maternity care will help her manage a department that helps welcome more than 280 babies each year. Tracy received her Bachelor's in Nursing from Wright State. Before coming to MCH, she worked at the Highland District Hospital in Hillsboro.
"I have worked in a lot of different environments including progressive care and home health, but OB is my love," said Tracy.
As the director of OB, Tracy's many responsibilities include managing nurses who work on the unit and preparing the unit for reviews by such organizations as the Ohio Department of Health (ODH).
Each year the ODH sends surveyors to hospitals across the state to review Maternity Departments and renew their licenses. Surveyors examine every aspect of the department. They check on staff competencies from the nurses who care for patients to the housekeepers who clean the rooms.
"I am happy to report that this year we have not received any nursing or clinic citations," said Tracy.
In addition to nursing, Tracy's other passion is education. She spent six years as a clinical instructor at Southern State Community College and serves as a 4-H advisor. In fact, at one time, she was studying to be an early childhood teacher, but chose to become a nurse instead.
Tracy's hobbies include raising wild game birds, and she said that she, her husband, and five children enjoy going wild turkey hunting together as a family.
