Four Seasons’ chief nursing officer Michelle Webb, MSN, RN was recently elected to a three-year term on the board of directors of the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association (HPNA), a national professional organization.
With more than 35 years’ nursing experience, Webb has worked for Four Seasons since 2004. In addition to her role at Four Seasons, Webb also serves as chief clinical officer and chief learning officer for Teleios Collaborative Network, a network of highly skilled leaders serving a group of non-profit hospice agencies across the Southeast.
HPNA exists to advance expert care and transform the care and culture of serious illness. As a member of the board, Webb will actively participate in HPNA’s development of innovations and improvements to the quality of care provided to those facing the most challenging time of their lives.
Webb was one of only two new candidates chosen to serve on the board beginning in January 2019. She will serve alongside seven other members and can serve up to two consecutive three-year terms. Board members are elected by nurses and clinical professionals who are members of HPNA.
Webb is passionate about ensuring that nurses lead the effort in the advancement of care for those with serious illness. “I am honored and grateful for the opportunity to increase my service to the professional organization for the nursing care specialty I love,” she said.
In addition to her new role on the board, Webb has provided other significant contributions to the hospice and palliative nursing specialty, notably serving as the managing editor for the Core Curriculum for the Hospice and Palliative Administrator, Second Edition, in 2017.
“Four Seasons is incredibly blessed to have a leader, clinical expert, and compassionate individual like Michelle as part of our leadership team,” said Millicent Burke-Sinclair, Ed.D., MBA, chief executive officer for Four Seasons. “I am confident that Michelle’s contributions to HPNA through her participation on the Board of Directors will be significant and long-lasting.”
In her role on the board of directors, Webb will utilize her diverse leadership and personal and professional experience to support HPNA in fulfilling its mission and realizing its vision.
“HPNA is actively and expertly changing the way we view hospice and palliative care at a national level,” said Chris Comeaux, president of Teleios Collaborative Network. “We are thrilled for and proud of Michelle for contributing her expertise to their excellent work and look forward to learning ways we can advance our practices through her new experience.”
