Moreover, Described as a dynamic and passionate nursing leader, Boesch brings a wealth of experience from his previous role as CNO for Centra Health in Lynchburg, Virginia, where he oversaw Lynchburg General Hospital and Virginia Baptist Hospital. Before that, he spent 13 years at Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, holding key positions in acute care nursing services and surgical services.

“Rob is a dynamic and passionate nursing leader focused on engaging and supporting team members as they deliver the highest quality of patient-centered care,” says Sharon Pappas, PhD, RN, FAAN, chief nurse executive for Emory Healthcare. “We welcome his wealth of experience as a nurse leader and look forward to his arrival at Emory early next year.”
