TriStar Horizon Medical Center is proud to welcome Aleece Hataway as the new Vice President of Quality and Risk management.

In her new role, she will be responsible for quality, performance improvement, infection control, sepsis prevention, patient safety, accreditation, risk management and have oversight of initiatives to reach the top percentile for core measures and eliminate hospital acquired-infections.

“We are pleased to have Aleece join our team,” said Jason Boyd, TriStar Horizon’s chief executive officer. “She is an innovative leader who has a passion for patient care and is dedicated to fulfilling our commitment to the care and improvement of human life.”

Hataway joins TriStar Horizon from Memphis, TN, where she served as the Director of Clinical Quality Improvement at her former hospital. She started her career as an intensive care nurse then decided to follow her passion for quality and patient safety by expanding her scope to include roles in both Risk Management and the Quality Department. Hataway attended the University of Memphis for a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and recently returned to the University of Memphis in pursuit of a Master in Business Administration.

TriStar Horizon has received eight consecutive “A” ratings from The Leapfrog Group and currently ranks in the top 18 of all the HCA Healthcare hospitals for quality metrics. Tristar Horizon maintains its excellence in quality care by closing 2020 with zero hospital-acquired infections. We maintain our Joint Commission Disease-Specific Certifications to include both Primary Stroke and Stroke Rehab.
