CHC Announces Joycelyn Angulo as the Recipient of the President's Leadership Excellence Award

Plano, TX (August 18, 2011) — Community Hospital Corporation (CHC) is pleased to announce the 2011 recipient of the second annual President’s Leadership Excellence Award. Joycelyn Angulo, RN, Director of Critical Care Services at Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas, Beaumont, was recognized as an inspirational and visionary leader who possesses relationship-building skills and a contagious passion for enhancing health care in the community.


“It is my pleasure to present the President’s Leadership Excellence Award to Joycelyn,” says Michael D. Williams, CHC’s president and CEO. “Her leadership and innovation has driven the direction of critical care services at Baptist Beaumont Hospital.”


The administrative team who nominated Angulo has no shortage of admiring words to describe her: honest, energetic, organized, focused, creative, loyal, skilled, talented, innovative, compassionate, well-respected, and humble. Angulo’s leadership skills were instrumental in the implementation of progressive nursing practices and the development of evidenced-based critical care protocols at Baptist Beaumont Hospital, where she has worked since 1998.


Angulo started out as a charge nurse and was promoted through the ranks of nursing administration. She is credited with providing the leadership and vision to develop Baptist Hospitals Cardiovascular Center of Excellence and for implementing leading-edge critical care practices. She helped pave the path for developing the role of Clinical Nurse Specialist in the ICU, leading the way for implementation of progressive nursing practices including the severe sepsis bundle — a group of interventions that result in better outcomes when treating sepsis.


“As a nurse director, Joycelyn sets very high standards for clinical care in her units, and she sets the bar for meeting performance standards,” says David Parmer, CEO, who along with the administrative team for Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas nominated Angulo for the President’s Leadership Excellence Award. “Her commitment to quality in patient care extends to family and community as well”, stated Parmer.


“Joycelyn is a skilled collaborator and team player who facilitates communication between diverse groups of people to achieve needed outcomes,” Parmer continues. “She is a positive force at all levels of the organization from bedside to meeting room.”


At an August 18, 2011 reception in Angulo’s honor, Williams will present her with a Waterford crystal bowl, $500 gift card, and a framed certificate of appreciation.
