ASC Industry Leader to Know: Stephanie Stinson of Strictly Pediatrics
Ms. Stinson has been an administrative director in the ASC industry for more than seven years and has been at Strictly Pediatrics since its inception in 2006. She served in the Mississippi Army National Guard as a surgical technologist for eight years and has been a nurse for 18 years, during which time she fulfilled staffing roles in neurosurgical ICU, surgery, recovery room and home health. She currently serves as a board member of Strictly Pediatrics Land Company, a position she's held since Dec. 2010.
While discussing the traits of highly successful surgery center administrators in an interview with Becker's ASC Review, Ms. Stinson said that personal relations are the biggest driver in administrator success. "The biggest thing is how you talk to someone," she said. "Sometimes you have to bring people in and talk to them more like they're your family than they're your employee. You can't forget that we are all humans and everyone is going to make mistakes." Ms. Stinson said that a great administrator will also recognize when employees do well. If the administrator recognizes employee achievement and makes those successes known to peers and physicians, everyone will feel motivated to work harder and appreciated for their efforts, she said.
