Pamela Anderson, MHA, BS, RN, has been named interim chief nursing officer for DeGraff Medical Park (DMP) and Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital (MFSH).
In this role, Anderson will be responsible for the day-to-day nursing operations, developing and implementing nursing strategies and corporate policies, nursing practice guidelines and quality indicators, all with an emphasis on delivering quality care that exceeds the expectations of patients and their families in our community. A national search for the position will be conducted following Rob Swann’s departure on September 17.

“Pam’s leadership roles have allowed her to partner with management, physicians and staff to ensure excellent patient care is delivered,” said Judy Baumgartner, president of DMP and MFSH. “Those established relationships and trust will provide continuity to the nursing team and allow the great work being done to continue.”
“Pam is an advocate for patients and an integral part of the clinical care team at DeGraff and Suburban,” said Cheryl Klass, chief nurse executive at Kaleida Health. “We are confident that her commitment to patient care and excellence will further our momentum.”
Anderson earned a Master of Science in Health Administration from Roberts Wesleyan College in 2019. She also holds an associate degree from Mercy School of Nursing in Pittsburg, PA and a bachelor’s degree from Roberts Wesleyan College.
