Amy Binkley, BSN, has been named chief nursing officer of Star Medical Center, a surgical hospital in Plano, Texas. Prior to her new role, Binkley served as the hospital’s acute care director, where she was responsible for the inpatient unit and emergency room, as well as employee health and employee education. Binkley’s career prior to Star Medical Center included medical/surgical nursing, recovery room nursing and emergency medicine.
“Amy has proven herself many times over as a compassionate caregiver, leader and true nurse professional,” said Mark Kennedy, Star Medical Center CEO. “She’s constantly addressing the needs of the hospital, our patients and our employees. While conducting the search to fill the CNO position, we kept coming back to the very positive standard Amy had already established. Like everything else she’s done here, she stepped up to the challenge and has been doing an excellent job.”
Currently pursuing her master’s degree in nursing, Binkley is excited about her new role. “I see Star Medical Center becoming one of the top surgical facilities in the DFW area. We have a phenomenal culture of compassion, caring and community service. My goal is for our patient care model to become the expectation of all surgical patients.”
Binkley adds: “My focus will be multi-dimensional and will include recruitment, retention and recognition of the entire nursing staff. I’m also deeply committed to improving the patient experience. I tell new employee applicants that at Star Medical Center they’ll be able to be the nurse they always wanted to be. Patients aren’t just part of our daily census; they’re part of our Star Medical Center family. Our approach to care means pushing patient and employee expectations to a higher level.”
