The Spectator - 9/12/2018
Sept. 12--WELLSVILLE -- Kelly Foster, RN BSN, has been named the Director of Emergency and Cardiac Services at Jones Memorial Hospital.
In this position, she will oversee the emergency department and cardiac services, including stress testing, EKGs, and Holter monitoring. Kelly will also be responsible for the Walk-In Clinic.
Kelly began her nursing career after graduating from Erie Community College Nursing Program in 1992. A native of Orchard Park, she worked at Our Lady of Victory Hospital in a variety of areas including oncology, surgical services, the ICU, and Emergency Department. She relocated to Wellsville and joined the ER at Jones in March 2000. During her career at Jones, she has worked in the ER and cardiac services like stress testing, cardiac rehab, and interventional radiology. Last year, she was named the Clinical Lead in the ER.
"I like the quick pace of the emergency room -- you never know what is going to happen next," she said, adding that the ER is often the "front door" of the hospital because many admission come through there. Having been in a leadership role for the past year, Kelly is familiar with many of the responsibilities associated with her new position.
"I am looking forward to the new challenges I will find in this advanced leadership role," she said.
Kelly and her husband David, the superintendent of Wellsville Central School District, live in Wellsville. Their younger son, Jake, is attending SUNY Fredonia. Older son Alex and his wife Kelsey live in Orchard Park and are expecting Kelly's first grandchild any day now.
