Linda Francies

Welcome to Parkview Regional Medical Center and Affiliates!

It is with great pleasure, as the Interim Chief Nursing Officer (CNO) at Parkview Regional Medical Center and Affiliates. I am honored to share this information on behalf of the nurses who serve the residents of Allen County and surrounding Indiana counties.

Our Senior Leadership Team and Board of Directors have provided unwavering support and encouragement in the pursuit of Magnet Designation. They are excited to highlight the many contributions our nurses have made to our hospital and community. 

Since joining the Parkview Health System in 2018, I have seen the nurses transform the way they practice throughout the Magnet journey. Clinical nurses, educators and nursing leaders have worked tirelessly to develop our professional practice environment and a culture of inter-professional collaboration.  The nursing shared governance structure inspires nurses to pursue professional improvement and overcome barriers in care.  This mindset has allowed us to align our strategic nursing plan and create patient care initiatives to continuously improve outcomes

Our facility also allows our nurses to continue their mission of high-quality exceptional care and service with modernized facilities, equipment and expanded services. We are committed to utilizing advanced technologies in a variety of nursing care areas, including telehealth options to help our patients stay close to their community and family. Our nurses provide outstanding, personal care in a variety of practice environments to include medical surgical, family birthing center, surgery, infusions and emergency services.

Care delivery is continuously improved by quality nursing experts, educators, and dedicated nurses striving to excel in all aspects of patient care in all service lines. They are compassionate, empathetic, and considerate as they provide excellent services both within our hospital and out in the community.  Our excellence is documented in our outcomes for quality, patient experience and nurse satisfaction and is recognized by the many awards we have won both as a facility and a system.

As the Interim CNO of Parkview Regional Medical Center and Affiliates, I am privileged to lead an exceptional group of nurses on this journey to improve both patient outcomes and the health of the communities we serve.  We strive to exceed the expectations of those we serve every encounter, every day.
