(CINCINNATI, OH) – TaleMed, a leading travel nursing company headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, announced today that Susan Abbott, RN, has joined their leadership team as the clinical director. Abbott, who has nearly 20 years of nursing and nurse management experience, will guide the company in development, maintenance and improvement of clinical processes and policies.

“Susan brings a lot of energy to the role and a passion for sharing her knowledge with other nurses and healthcare providers,” said Ken Tracy, president of TaleMed. “She has worked in a variety of roles in healthcare facilities and is able to utilize her vast experience to address a variety of situations and complex challenges.”

Abbott has held positions as clinic nurse, nurse manager and director of nursing. She has worked in a variety of fields, from family medicine to cardiac step down and telemetry. Abbott has also facilitated or participated in a number of research initiatives, including in her most recent role at a research laboratory.

“I’m thrilled to be a part of the TaleMed team. I am proud to be a part of their mission to help nurses do the work they love in healthcare facilities across the country and to help hospitals manage their resources and provide superior care to patients,” Abbott said.

A passion for patient and family education has been the hallmark of her career, regardless of her position or discipline, and she will continue to use that perspective in her approach to clinical services at TaleMed.

Abbott is also passionate about TaleMed’s approach to sharing healthcare services with those who have limited or no access to healthcare. She is a frequent volunteer on medical missionary trips, including missions to the Dominican Republic, Mexico and villages along the Amazon River during annual trips to Brazil.

“TaleMed’s broader vision of compassion for all people and of providing quality healthcare in even the most remote of places gives me a sense of purpose,” Abbott said. “I know that it is a company that acts with honesty, ethics, accountability, kindness and care – in how the company treats clients, nurses, and patients. I couldn’t ask for a better place to work.”

Abbott assumes her role immediately and will work directly with the rest of the leadership team to continue to standardize processes and practices and drive improvements in the delivery of care.
