Traci Crump Named New Director of Surgery
We are excited to welcome Traci Crump as the new Director of Surgery! Traci has worked in healthcare for 21 years. She began her career while in nursing school as a surgical and central sterile technician and that’s where she says she fell in love with all aspects of surgery.
Once she became a RN, she cross trained in all areas including pre, post-op, GI, circulating and scrubbing. Traci has worked in surgery as the Director for the last 15 years at Forrest City Medical Center. She completed her BSN in 2014 and Masters of Nursing in Advanced Practice in December of 2017.
“The best part about being a nurse in surgery is seeing the difference we make in our patient’s lives," Crump said. "I love that what we do really make a difference in their lives. It’s amazing what a smile and holding someone’s hand can do. To me, nursing is having compassion and being an advocate to improve the health and quality of care for the patient.”
Tracy grew up in Moro on a small farm. She has been married for 23 years and has three children: Noah-17, Ethan-15, and Bella Claire-8.
