Local Woman Named CEO Of Visiting Nurse and Blue Water Hospice

visiting nurseA Port Huron woman has been named to the new president and chief executive officer at Visiting Nurse Association and Blue Water Hospice of Port Huron.  Karen Harris, RN, MSA, of  Port Huron has been named president and CEO.  She replaces David McKay, who left the organization for a new opportunity. Harris previously served as the vice president of operations/chief operating officer at VNA/BWH, where she was responsible for ensuring the organization was aligned with the Visiting Nurse Association and Blue Water Hospice mission. Prior to coming to VNA/BWH, Harris served in various leadership roles at St. Joseph Mercy Port Huron for 28 years, most recently as vice president of nursing and chief nursing officer.  Harris earned a master of science in administration degree from Central Michigan University and bachelor of science in nursing degree from University of Michigan.  “We are very excited about the depth of both clinical healthcare experience and financial administrative experience that Karen Harris brings to our organization,” said James Goldsworthy, chair of the VNA/BWH board of trustees. “Harris is a compassionate and caring individual who believes in our mission and vision and will help us move this organization forward. We are fortunate to have her as our leader.”  Since Harris joined VNA/BWH in early 2015, the organization has earned two five-star ratings from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services for quality and patient satisfaction. Only a handful of home health and hospice organizations in the state of Michigan have earned such accolades.   Founded in 1952, Visiting Nurse Association and Blue Water Hospice is a Port Huron-based non-profit home health care and hospice organization that provides high quality, cost-effective health care to patients and families coping with acute, chronic and terminal health care problems in Sanilac, St. Clair and northern Macomb counties.  In addition to providing in-home services, Visiting Nurse Association and Blue Water Hospice also operates Blue Water Hospice Home in Marysville, which allows patients to receive hospice care in a home-like setting.
