Press Release

St. Joseph's Mercy Health Center

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. – Monica Carpenter, RN was recently named Unit Manager of the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at St. Joseph’s Mercy Health Center.

Carpenter began her St. Joseph’s career in 1990, working as a 3-11 shift monitor tech, critical care tech and unit secretary. Since 1995, when she secured her associate’s of science degree in nursing from National Park Community College, she has been working as a registered nurse in ICU.

“Monica not only brings hands-on ICU experience to the table, she brings management experience through a previous position she held as a Director of Nursing for a nursing and rehabilitation facility,” said Steve Henson, Emergency Department-Intensive Care Unit Executive Director. “We are excited to have an individual of her qualifications leading the ICU team.”

Carpenter, a 13-year St. Joseph’s co-worker who is presently pursuing a bachelor’s of science degree in organizational management, is married and she and her husband, Greg, have three children – 15-year-old Kassie, eight-year-old Katie and two-year-old Karli.

“I am excited about my new position and am looking forward to contributing in the role,” Carpenter said. “I have high expectations for both myself and those that I work with on the unit. St. Joseph’s is special to me, always working with me where school is concerned and providing a tuition reimbursement program that enabled me to attend nursing school.

“Working in the ICU at St. Joseph’s has been a very rewarding experience and I have been provided with great knowledge to draw from. The vision at St. Joseph’s is patient focused and we truly do provide quality care with Christian hospitality. There is no other healthcare atmosphere that compares to that of St. Joseph’s.”
