Community Health of South Florida Inc. has announced the promotions of two CHI staffers to the Executive Team.
Monica Mizell RN, MSN, MHA, has been promoted to vice president and chief nursing officer and Jean Pierre, LCSW, moved up the ranks to become the new vice president for Behavioral Health Services.
Mizell succeeds Mae Goins, who retired in January, and Pierre replaces Mireya Mayor, who recently retired.
“At CHI we believe in home growing our talent and Monica Mizell and Jean Pierre are both proof of that,” said Brodes H. Hartley Jr., president and CEO of CHI. “They have both shown exceptional leadership skills. I am confident they will be very successful in their new roles.”
Mizell, who has been acting as the interim vice president of Nursing for several months, has been with CHI for nearly 24 years. She began her career as a registered nurse at CHI’s Doris Ison Center’s Urgent Care Unit. From there, she moved to the Martin Luther King Jr. Clinica Campesina Health Center and eventually became site manager. During the two decades at CHI, Mizell received her degrees and more.
“It’s been a place that I’ve been able to work and grow professionally, raise a family and mentor my staff,” Mizell said. “I didn’t realize what an impact I have on my staff. They’ve watched me and I’ve encouraged and motivated them to go to school and get their degrees.”
Jean Pierre moved up from his role of seven years as the Quality Assurance Quality Improvement Care coordinator. In 2012, he was awarded Supervisor of the Year. Since then he also has grown professionally, obtaining his Six Sigma Green Belt certification. In addition, Pierre established the Behavioral Health Access Program to assist patients in getting Medicaid cash assistance and food stamps.
“I’m looking forward to continuing to work with the dynamic CHI family,” Pierre said. “And I look forward to maintaining the same level of quality client services.”
