Mar 5, 2017
Catherine Wilkins, R.N., was recently appointed Pediatric Care Coordinator for Pullman Regional Hospital’s Pediatric Center of Excellence. Wilkins, who has worked in the Emergency Department as a nurse since 2006, will work to improve and coordinate the care of pediatric patients and families by Pullman Regional Hospital and create a standardized approach to that care to ensure the highest quality of service.
Initially, she will be performing a needs assessment of inpatient and outpatient hospital services and area physicians providing pediatric care.
“Once this information is collected, the focus will be on education and process improvement collaboration,” she said.
Wilkins has been a nurse for 23 years and most recently worked at Sacred Heart Medical Center Children’s Emergency Department. She spearheaded the Pediatric Readiness Project for the Emergency Department at Pullman Regional Hospital, has worked in public health providing maternal child care and served as a Safe Kids coalition coordinator.
“I am excited to bring my passion and my experience to coordinate pediatric care between providers and Pullman Regional Hospital to better serve our pediatric population in the region,” Wilkins said.
