LifeGift Announces Operational Leadership Changes

Jacqueline Nix

In May 2013, ICU nurse Jacqueline Nix reported for her shift at JPS Health Network, where an unidentified patient – a bicyclist, brain dead after being hit by a car – had been assigned to her care.

This process will allow for HR to be more effective and efficient in serving the needs of the organization.
