Landy new Director of Professional Practices at NGHS

By Staff
GAINESVILLE - Northeast Georgia Health System (NGHS) Friday announced that Krista Landy is its new director of Professional Practice. In this role, Landy will help put structures and processes in place that will enhance the level of professionalism of NGHS' clinical staff.

"Krista's leadership, expertise and collaborative spirit make her a welcome addition to our team," says Carol Burrell, president and CEO of NGHS.

"Her experience in building systems within large organizations is an invaluable resource to NGHS."

Landy comes to NGHS from Children's Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA), where she worked for 20 years, most recently serving as project manager for Nursing Services, director of Patient and Family Support Services and operations manager.

Prior to her time at CHOA, Landy worked for five years for Charter Psychiatric Hospitals as the nurse manager of Youth Services and as a staff nurse.

"Nursing excellence is my passion," says Landy.

"I look forward to collaborating with nurses of all levels at NGHS to create a healthy work environment where nurses can learn, advance professionally and provide the best care possible."

Originally from Florida, Landy moved to Gainesville in 1998. She and her husband, Steven, have a 16-year-old son, Cole.

Landy is currently pursuing her master's degree in nursing administration from Georgia State University and will complete her degree in 2014.
