Murray-Calloway County Hospital (MCCH) names Beth Henson, RN, as the new Director of Perioperative Services.

As the Director of Perioperative Services she will handle the day to day operations of all areas within surgery including: Outpatient and Inpatient Surgery, Recovery, and Sterile Supply. Henson is responsible for ensuring the department complies with the Joint Commission surgery standards, AORN recommendations, updating policies and procedures and educating the staff on these. Her new role entails supervision of around 60 hospital staff and hands on communication with the surgeons.
“Communication is always the biggest challenge and I want to work on improving communication and working more cohesively as a department,” said Henson. “I also want to make sure we stay current with new technology that not only fits with our surgeon’s needs, but also offers the best care to our community”.
Henson is from Marshall County and has two daughters, Amber 21, and Ashley, 24. She is the proud grandmother of Laurel who is 3 months old and has another grandchild on the way.
