Veteran Woodruff appointed to nursing post at Sharon Hospital

SHARON — Nuvance Health has appointed Dawn Woodruff, MSN, RN, as chief nursing officer of Sharon Hospital.

The appointment was made on Thursday, Oct. 13.

Woodruff has worked in the health-care field for  35 years and at Sharon Hospital for more than eight years, most recently serving as director of Patient Care Services since 2020.

Woodruff will lead the facility’s nursing team through creation of “efficient nursing procedures, treatment plans, integration of new medical technologies,” the hospital said.

“It is an honor to continue my journey as a nurse leader at Sharon Hospital in a profession that makes a profound impact on the lives of so many in our communities,” Woodruff said in a statement. “I am committed to fostering an environment and culture of care that ensures every nurse can fulfill their passions and each patient receives the support they deserve, whether for routine lab work or an elective procedure at our hospital.”

Woodruff previously worked at St. Mary’s Hospital, where she began her career at the bedside as a staff and charge nurse in the Intensive Care Unit. She has a Master of Science and Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Connecticut.

The former chief nursing officer, Christina McCulloch, became president of Sharon Hospital earlier this year.
