BRATTLEBORO — The Brattleboro Retreat has appointed Meghan Baston as the hospital’s new chief nursing officer. She began her duties on September 25.
Baston comes to the Retreat from Elliot Hospital in Manchester, New Hampshire, where she had served as the director of behavioral health services and earlier as a clinical nurse manager.
In addition to providing direct care, Baston’s nursing background includes experience with program/staff management, strategic planning, the development and implementation of clinical processes, staff education, regulatory oversight, workforce retention, and cultural transformation within the workplace.
“I’m excited to be part of a mission that focuses exclusively on treating people who suffer from mental illness and addiction,” said Baston. “Supporting and guiding Retreat nurses through challenging times in the field of mental health will be a top priority.”
