Shared Governance

LewisGale Regional Health System has embraced a shared governance model that provides professional nursing staff and management with the opportunity to engage in participatory decision-making in matters of nursing practice and procedures. The goal of this innovative approach is to support professional accountability and responsibility in a collegial environment that promotes quality patient care outcomes.

More than 200 LewisGale nurses currently serve on shared governance councils that allow them to make recommendations, form working partnerships and share accomplishments as they focus on excellence in patient care, professional development, research, nursing practice, peer review and education.

Excellence in Nursing

As a nurse at LewisGale Hospital Montgomery, you become part of a prestigious network of care teams that have achieved the Nursing Magnet Program® designation. Developed by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), Magnet is the ultimate credential for professional nursing excellence, earned by only 5 percent of all U.S. hospitals. The Magnet designation means that LewisGale Hospital Montgomery has met the highest standards for transformational leadership; structural empowerment through shared governance; exemplary professional practice; new knowledge, innovations and improvements and empirical outcomes.

Mentoring New Nurses

Through our COMPASS Coaching Program at all LewisGale hospitals, an experienced nurse is paired with each new employee throughout his or her orientation. The specially trained preceptor acts as an educator, socializer and role model, sharing nursing expertise and helping the new staff member become a valued member of the healthcare team. New nursing staff members have the opportunity to continue their professional development through a mentoring experience that includes classroom learning and supervised clinical experiences, which helps our nurses build the confidence and skills needed for future growth and leadership.
