Lifetime Achievement finalist

Linda Howell, NICU nurse manager, Nationwide Children’s Hospital/Mount Carmel East

For the past six years, Howell has led the Mount Carmel East neonatal intensive care unit where she focuses on providing best-in-class care while sustaining employee engagement and expertise.

Here are Columbus CEO’s Healthcare Achievement Award winners and finalists for 2020. Inspiring stories ahead.

She went back to school while working full time to earn a Master of Science in nursing degree in 2016 and continues to encourage her team to continuously learn by supporting them as they pursue their educational goals.

“As a leader I feel it is my responsibility to encourage colleagues to continue their education,” she says. “I know as I encourage colleagues, I take the risk they may find a different career path in nursing, but I view that as a success story. Everyone should reach for their dreams. I am blessed I have reached my dream.”
