Dana L. Dalton DNP, MSN-MHA, BC-NE, RN-BC is new chief nursing officer at the Regional Medical Center.

Dalton comes to RMC from Granite City, Ill., where she served as chief nursing officer for Quorom Health’s Gateway Regional Medical Center, a 340-bed acute care facility located about 10 miles north of St. Louis.

Dalton’s first day at RMC will be May 20. In addition to some 25 years of experience, Dalton will bring to the hospital’s senior leadership team a proven track record for exceeding expectations in such important areas as program development, quality improvement, patient satisfaction, productivity, supply utilization, process improvement, staffing, compliance and patient education.

“Dana has an impressive and diverse background in nursing leadership, and we think she will be a tremendous asset to RMC as we continue to expand services, enhance the patient experience and develop a culture of excellence,” said RMC President and CEO Charles E. Williams, FACHE.

Prior to Quorum Health, Dalton was the director of nursing at Forsyth Medical Center in Winston-Salem, N.C. Forsyth Medical Center is a 921-bed acute care hospital and the largest facility in the Novant Health system.

Dalton previously served as a nursing leader in critical care, including three years in the Novant Health system and four years at Wake Forest Baptist Health, a nationally recognized, Winston-Salem-based academic medical center and health system.

Dalton began her nursing career in long-term care, serving as the MDS coordinator and later as the director of nursing at Heritage Hall-Laurel Meadows, a 60-bed skilled nursing facility in Laurel Fork, Virginia.

Dalton earned a Licensed Practical Nursing (LPN) degree from New River Community College in Dublin, Va.; an associate’s degree in nursing from Wytheville Community College in Wytheville, Va.; a bachelor’s degree in nursing and a master’s degree in nursing and health administration from Gardner-Webb University in Boiling Springs, N.C.; and a doctoral degree in executive nursing leadership and health care systems management from the Chamberlin College of Nursing in Chicago.

Owned by Orangeburg and Calhoun counties, the Regional Medical Center (RMC) health care system includes a 286-bed, acute-care hospital certified by The Joint Commission and 22 primary care and specialty care practices.
