With over 25 years of nursing experience, she came to Brooks-TLC from UPMC Chautauqua WCA in Jamestown, where she was charge nurse.
In her role as CNO and compliance officer, Morton is responsible for overseeing all nursing activities, as well as ensuring system-wide adherence to outside regulatory and legal requirements, and internal policies and procedures
Morton holds a Master of Science in Nursing Executive Leadership from Daemen College, a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Gannon University and an Associate’s in Applied Science from Alfred State College of Technology.
“I am honored to be able to expand my professional commitment to the hospital in anew leadership role and to continue to serve a population so worthy of high quality and compassionate care,” said Morton.”
