HCA Midwest Health, Kansas City’s leading healthcare provider, announced today that Anna S. Burke, RN, MBA, FACHE, has been appointed as Division Vice President of Quality. As a longtime respected clinical leader, Burke will join the clinical quality team, working with Chief Medical Officer Dr. Darryl Nelson, M.D. and Dr. Troy Trosclair, RN, DNS, Division Chief Nursing Executive. She will be responsible for the oversight and leadership for clinical services, patient safety, patient experience and more for seven HCA Midwest Health hospitals in Kansas and Missouri.
“We have made great progress in quality, patient safety and patient experience over the past several years,” says Nelson. “The addition of someone with Anna’s caliber will allow us to move our agenda even further and provide the very best experience for our patients and their families.”

Since July 2008 Burke played a critical role at HCA in Nashville, Tenn., on the Corporate Performance Improvement team. She has served at several HCA hospitals where she was responsible for quality outcomes and regulatory compliance since 2004.  Prior to joining HCA Corporate Performance Improvement, Burke was Chief Nursing Officer at Dauterive Hospital in New Iberia, La., where she led the facility’s vast quality and patient safety achievements, including inpatient satisfaction scores being maintained in the CMS 90th percentile and among the top five HCA facilities consistently.

In addition, Burke was CNO at The Regional Medical Center of Acadiana in Lafayette, La., where she successfully implemented a new graduate RN Residency Program and led the team to be recognized as the only facility in the region to achieve an “A” grade from the Leapfrog Group.

An FACHE Fellow, Burke received a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Loyola University and a Masters of Business Administration from the University of New Orleans in New Orleans, La.

“Throughout my tenure with HCA, I have witnessed the commitment to quality patient care and the resources HCA has dedicated to emerge as a visionary leader in the healthcare industry,” Burke says. “The ability to join this team and work in partnership with others to directly impact healthcare is my passion and the opportunity of a lifetime.”
