Huron, S.D. – Huron Regional Medical Center (HRMC) is pleased to announce the promotion of Lindsey McCaskell, RN, to assistant inpatient services director-utilization, according to Gail Robeson, RN, MBA, vice president of patient services for HRMC.
In this newly-created position, which McCaskell has served in since March, she is responsible for supporting organizational programs, ensuring the patient experience is seamless and exceptional. She will assist in the development of comprehensive nursing care for patients from admission through post discharge including care management, utilization review and discharge planning. McCaskell works closely with patients, families, staff, physicians and all other departments in the hospital.
“I am pleased to have Lindsey in this role. Her experiences, energy and determination make her a great fit,” said Robeson. “At her core, Lindsey is helpful and accessible, and she is always willing to use her knowledge in service to others.”
McCaskell, who has worked as a nurse for five years, earned her degree in nursing from Dakota Wesleyan University. She also earned an associate degree of medical secretary/transcription from Mitchell Technical Institute. McCaskell will also be working towards her bachelor of science in nursing.
“I’m looking forward to working closely with Lindsey to coordinate care, develop new improvements and manage day-to-day workflow,” said Amy Goergen, RN, inpatient services director at HRMC. “Patient-centered care is our main focus and this new position will help us all maintain our focus on the most important reason we are here!”
Prior to becoming a nurse, McCaskell was a medical coder for a medical consulting firm and worked as a medical receptionist, biller, coder and office coordinator for HRMC’s orthopedic clinic. But, her passion was to take care of people, so she went on to nursing school. Her first nursing job was as charge nurse at Sunquest Healthcare Center before joining HRMC’s nursing team in 2015.
“I am excited to take on this new challenge and feel honored and look forward to continuing to provide support to patients, families and my HRMC family.” said McCaskell, “My goal is to be a liaison between the patients and healthcare providers in our community, as well as to provide continuing support to all my fellow staff members.”
