Low Moor, VA, June, 2015 – When Danielle Morgan started her nursing career 16 years ago she had one goal in mind – to make a difference in the lives of her friends, neighbors and her hometown community as a whole. That mission would ultimately lead her to career at LewisGale Hospital Alleghany and most recently to accept the position of the hospital’s new Quality Director.

“As a Quality Director, I have the honor and privilege of working with patients, hospital staff, and physicians to improve the quality of care patients receive at every access point in our hospital,” said Danielle, BSN, RN, CNOR.

In her role, she manages several departments including quality, infection control and risk management, all with a single focus of improving patient outcomes and overall hospital experience.

“I take pride in knowing that my friends, neighbors, and family are receiving the highest level of care possible at LewisGale Hospital Alleghany,” she said. “Our continued recognition as a Top Performer by The Joint Commission is one example of our commitment to excellence.”

Danielle’s commitment to her role is also evidenced by her recent designation as a Certified Professional in Healthcare Quality (CPHQ). She will also graduate in December from Liberty University with a Master’s Degree in Executive Leadership. Danielle is also a Certified Operating Room Nurse.

“Earning this prestigious CPHQ credential serves as a symbol of Danielle’s knowledge and unmatched commitment to quality,” said Charlotte Tyson, CEO of LewisGale Hospital Alleghany. “This distinction is the gold standard in her field. We are honored to have her leading our team.”
