Huguley Appoints ICU, Oncology Care Managers

Angela Hewett, R.N.

Daniel Gray, R.N.

Huguley Memorial Medical Center has promoted Daniel Gray, R.N., from Unit 500 (medical, surgery and oncology) care manager to ICU Care Manager. Angela Hewett, R.N., has been promoted from Unit 500 charge nurse to Unit 500 care manager.  Mr. Gray will oversee a staff of 60 and two intensive care units: one dedicated to cardiovascular patients and the other for medical and respiratory patients.  Ms. Hewett will be responsible for daily operations of Unit 500 staffing and patient care, and she will supervise about 40 nurses, aides and other staff.

Mr. Gray served as Unit 500 care manager for a year, during which patient satisfaction scores rose significantly.  He joined Huguley six years ago as the administrative nursing supervisor, managing the hospital operations at night. He served a similar position at Medical Center of Arlington, where he also worked as an ER and ICU nurse.  He has thirteen years’ experience in nursing and administration.  Mr. Gray received his nursing degree from North Idaho College in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.  He grew up in southeast Alaska and now resides in Burleson.

Ms. Hewett has sixteen years’ nursing experience, including thirteen with Huguley.  A certified oncology nurse, she was the charge nurse for the fifth floor previously.  Also, she is a computer superuser who trains others on electronic medical charting.  She earned her R.N. from Tarrant County Junior College.  A native of Joshua, she now lives in Godley.

In 2004, Huguley doubled the size of its intensive care unit and divided it into two units to accommodate the growing number and complexity of critically ill patients.  This year, the medical intensive care unit plans to open five more beds in October, bringing the total to 25 ICU beds.  Another new development in the intensive care units is participation in a research study sponsored by Johns Hopkins University to reduce the risk of central line infections.
