SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (PRWEB) June 26, 2018
Medical Consulting Group introduces its newest nurse consultant Anita Burch, RN, BSN, who joins the team of medical business experts to assist with ambulatory surgery center (ASC) development and management clients.
“As a nurse consultant, it is my role to support our clients’ clinical directors,” says Burch, “and to make sure that all our ASCs are functioning in the safest, most effective manner in conjunction with the regulations the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care have in place. A major component of my job is to assist ASCs from start to finish with anything clinical and to educate and prepare them for survey and accreditation.” Even a brief glance at Burch’s résumé proves she is highly qualified to do so.
Burch earned an Associate of Applied Science in Nursing from Three Rivers College in Poplar Bluff, MO, before completing a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Oklahoma Wesleyan University. In 2004, Burch joined Mercy Hospital in Springfield, Missouri, where she worked as an RN for nine years. For eight of those years, she served as a charge nurse, leading and directing others on her ASC and Surgical Intensive Care Unit teams. She then spent two years as Manager of Surgical Services at Mercy in an eight-OR suite, multi-specialty, outpatient surgery center. For two more years, she served as Director of Surgical Services for a similarly sized center, before joining MCG’s team in late 2017 on the recommendation of her former colleague, Patricia Thomas, RN, BS, CRNO, who also works at MCG as a nurse consultant.
According to her fellow MCG consultants, Burch’s experience makes her an invaluable member of their ASC development and management division. “I feel I can relate and foster positive relationships with our clinical directors because I have been in the role they hold,” she says. “The people at MCG are wonderful and it is exciting to learn and work side by side with consultants who have been in this business for a long time.”
