Jody Roeber recently accepted a promotion to chief clinical officer (CCO) at Delta County Memorial Hospital (DCMH), Jason Cleckler, hospital administrator, announced.
Roeber has worked for DCMH full time as director of cost and quality improvement since June 2011.
During the past year she led a team in gaining a successful audit from Joint Commission, a hospital accrediting agency, CMS – Medicare certification, and Colorado Health Department (CDPHE) hospital licensure inspection.
"Jody has joined our administrative team with 31 years of nursing experience in many different clinical areas, education and management roles. She is involved with our community, dedicated to our hospital and the patients we serve. Jody has demonstrated strong interpersonal, communication, and leadership skills," Cleckler said.
Roeber was born in Albany, N.Y., and lived in South America and Europe prior to moving to Crawford at a young age. She graduated from Paonia High School and earned a bachelor's degree in nursing from Loretto Heights College. She later earned a master's degree in nursing and postgraduate credits as a family nurse practitioner from the University of Colorado.
From 1987-2005, Roeber was the health services coordinator for Delta County Joint School District. She was responsible for health services for all 15 schools and approximately 4,000 students. She created standardized care plans for students with chronic conditions which became a model for other Colorado schools. During this period of time she continued to work as an on-call nurse for DCMH in medical surgical and obstetric units.
In July 2005 Roeber became the director of nursing education at Delta-Montrose Technical College overseeing the high school health careers, CNA and LPN programs. She was instrumental in gaining national accreditation for the technical college based in Delta, one of the first practical nursing programs to be accredited in Colorado.
"I am excited about this wonderful opportunity with Delta County Memorial Hospital," Roeber said. "I feel fortunate to be honored with the CCO promotion and plan to work very hard, as I have in my former positions in the community."
Mrs. Roeber married her high school sweetheart Mark, whose family has raised cattle in the Paonia area since the late 1800s. Mark Roeber is a recently elected Delta County commissioner. Together they have four children and two grandchildren.blog comments powered by Disqus
