Associate Dean Position Created to Enhance Pediatric Education, Care
Published September 2007
Cheryl Hoying, PhD, senior vice president of patient services at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, has been named an associate dean at the UC College of Nursing.
The position was created to enhance the college’s pediatric education and nursing practice models.
“We have a longstanding partnership with Children’s on multiple academic projects such as student co-op,” says Andrea Lindell, PhD, dean of the College of Nursing. “This new collaboration will allow us to strengthen existing projects while developing new ones.”
Hoying, a registered nurse, says she is honored to receive the appointment and reconnect with UC, where she earned her PhD in nursing.
“UC has a nationally noted nursing program,” says Hoying. “I look forward to increasing our partnership by building on the joint initiatives that are currently under way, and I especially hope to collaborate more in the area of nursing research in the future.”
In addition to enhancing pediatric nursing care locally, the partnership is helping to develop care and curriculum on an international level. Currently, UC and Cincinnati Children’s are working with King Fahad Medical City in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, to improve its nursing care and programs.
At Cincinnati Children’s, Hoying is responsible for about 4,000 patient services employees in areas ranging from nursing, child life and respiratory care to nutrition services, pharmacy and volunteer services.
Prior to joining Cincinnati Children’s in January 2006, Hoying was the administrator of patient care services at Ohio State University.
Hoying earned her bachelor’s degree in nursing and her master’s in nursing administration from Wright State University. She is a graduate of the highly selective Johnson & Johnson–Wharton Fellows Program in Management for Nurse Executives at the University of Pennsylvania.
