Two Hospitals of Providence CEOs Honored With National Recognition as Women Leaders

On Monday, officials with the Hospitals of Providence announced that two of its hospital CEOs have been nationally recognized as women leaders in the healthcare industry.

Monica Vargas-Mahar and Tasha Hopper were named to the Becker’s Hospital Review 2018 list of “Women Hospital and Healthcare Leaders to Know”.

As Becker’s notes, “These women are hospital and health system executives for institutions across the nation. These leaders face the challenges of running healthcare organizations head-on. Many wear multiple hats within their health system to promote organizational growth and drive innovation.”

Monica Vargas-Mahar serves as the Market Chief Operating Officer for The Hospitals of Providence and the Chief Executive Officer for the East Campus.

As Market COO, she oversees operations for the entire network in the El Paso area. As CEO of the East Campus, she successfully guided the hospital to achieve the advancement of its trauma designation to a Level 3 emergency room. Vargas-Mahar was also instrumental in helping both the Sierra Campus and East Campus receive a Grade “A” by Leapfrog for patient safety.

Tasha Hopper serves as Chief Executive Officer for The Hospitals of Providence Transmountain Campus. Having begun her career as a Labor and Delivery nurse at the Memorial Campus, she has made a difference and inspired those around her as she’s persevered and served in several capacities to include Director of Nursing, Assistant Chief Nursing Officer, Associate Administrator, Chief Operating Officer and now Chief Executive Officer of the Transmountain Campus.

As the hospital’s first employee, Hopper oversaw the Transmountain Campus’ $120 million construction and has continued to oversee its development, operations and growth since opening its doors in January 2017.

Via a news release, THoP Officials added, “Both Vargas-Mahar and Hopper are inspirational and compassionate leaders, determined to make a difference in healthcare and in the El Paso community.”

Becker’s Hospital Review selected 143 women to its list of hospital and health system leaders to know. They were selected to the list for their success in helping to achieve financial, operational and clinical goals; as well as, contributing to the culture of innovation and transformation valued by The Hospitals of Providence and its staff, patients and the community.

Hospitals of Providence East Campus Receives “A” for Patient Safety in Spring 2018

Officials with the Hospitals of Providence announced Tuesday that their East Campus earned a grade “A” in a recent national safety study conducted by Leapfrog Group, a national nonprofit healthcare ratings organization.

“We are proud to see a grade “A” for the 12th consecutive scoring period from Leapfrog,” said Monica Vargas-Mahar, CEO of The Hospitals of Providence East Campus and Market COO for The Hospitals of Providence. “We strive to continually improve our performance in clinical care and patient satisfaction. It’s gratifying to see independent recognition of those efforts and a true testament to our staff that they are committed to providing our patients with the safe, quality care they deserve.”

As part of the national safety study, Leapfrog Group scores hospitals on how safe they keep their patients from errors, injuries, accidents and infections.  Scores are graded on a scale from A – F, based on 27 measures of publicly available hospital safety data.

“Leapfrog is considered the gold standard for measuring patient care, and we are pleased to see East Campus well-represented among the top-performing U.S. hospitals,” said Vargas-Mahar.  “Recognition of this sort does not happen by chance. It is possible only through the dedication and tireless work of our nurses, physicians, and ancillary staff who treat our patients as though they were family.”

The Hospitals of Providence East Campus was among 750 hospitals nationally and only one in El Paso to be awarded an ‘A’ for efforts in protecting patients and meeting high safety standards.

Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grades are updated every spring and fall following assessments of more than 2,500 hospitals across the country.
