“Norma brings to this position many years of clinical and managerial experience,” said Flaget President Sue Downs, MSN, CENP. “I am very pleased to announce her promotion. Her focus is always on how to provide the best possible care for the patient. Norma also provides a listening ear and heart to employees and physicians.
