Hi-Desert Medical Center named Steve Cox, RN, MSN, as the new emergency department director.  Steve brings a solid background in emergency department nursing as well as management of a telemetry unit to his post.

Before his nursing career, Steve was an EMT / fireman for 18 years with a volunteer fire department in rural northeast Colorado, rising to the rank of captain.  Other experience includes work with the National Medical Response Team, the Disaster Medical Assistance Team and extensive hazardous materials training.  He and his wife have relocated here from Colorado where he most recently worked at North Colorado Medical Center.

Steve replaces Donna Johnson, RN, who has moved to employee health in human resources, where she will also develop occupational health services.
