Dr. Maureen Sintich, executive vice president and chief nurse executive of Inova Health System, was honored with Chamberlain’s Distinguished Alumni Award. Dr. Sintich’s 35-year nursing career has focused on making a difference for her patients and community.

Dr. Sintich, a graduate of Chamberlain’s Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree program, was recognized for her many accomplishments, which include recently serving as the senior vice president and network chief nurse officer of Hackensack Meridian Health, an integrated network of 13 hospitals throughout the state of New Jersey. She worked within the patient, nursing and organizational spheres to improve patient outcomes, advance the patient experience and innovate throughout their many locations. She introduced the “High Reliability Organizational” concept to her team, which encourages the intentional practices of peer coaching, staff recognition and maintaining a caring connection between staff and patients – they call it being “Heartwired.” Dr. Sintich has also led the development of a nurse residency program, which has seen almost 300 newly-graduated RNs transition to their role as professional nurses with confidence and competence.

Congratulations, Dr. Sintich! You are truly an extraordinary Chamberlain nurse.
