Nursing Leader Amplifies Focus on Exceptional Patient Experience

Candice Allen Joins Gritman as Assistant Chief Nursing Officer

Candice Allen is enthusiastic about providing exceptional patient care. Our new Assistant Chief Nursing Officer, Allen came to Gritman this winter with a focus on customer experience, clinical education and the Gritman System’s strategic goal of improving our Electronic Medical Records (EMR) system.

“It’s all about reigniting the passion in health care,” Allen said. “Coming out of a pandemic we’re excited, I’m excited, to be able to lead many areas and multiple programs that grow our own.”

Allen, who holds a Master of Science in Nursing, has a background in informatics and customer experience. She joins Gritman after more than a dozen years in health care, most recently as Chief Nursing Officer and Service Excellence Advisor at Rio Grande Hospital in Colorado.

She joins an experienced nursing team led by Chief Nursing Officer Mari Timlin. The pair work together to ensure each and every one of our patients receives exceptional care that’s close to home. Welcome to the Gritman Family.
