August 28th, 2017

Becker’s Hospital Review has listed Ann Cella, RN, Senior Vice President of Patient Care Services and CNO of St. Francis Hospital, among the top CNOs in the country. The national healthcare publication says chief nursing executives and CNOs play a crucial role in a hospital or health care system’s success. Cella is one of only four CNOs in New York to make the elite list.

“It’s a great honor to receive this recognition and to be among such an esteemed group of colleagues,” says Cella, who was cited among top nursing executives that oversee large teams of nurses to ensure quality of care and patient experience.

Cella joined St. Francis in 1979 and became the senior vice president of patient care services and CNO in 1999. She has also been named one of Long Island’s Top 50 Most Influential Women by Long Island Business News.
