Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center recently added two experienced professionals to its leadership team. Earlier this month Sierra Vista welcomed Darlene O’Connor as Director, Medical Staff Services and Lisa Vinson, Director, Case Management. 

O’Connor, who relocated to the Central Coast from Saints Medical Center in Lowell, MA will be responsible for working closely with medical staff leadership on all medical staff standards, credentialing of new and renewing physicians to the Sierra Vista medical staff, medical staff policies and procedures and medical staff bylaws.        

She has nearly 10 years of experience in the field. Prior to Saints Medical Center she served in the same capacity at Metrowest Medical Center in Framingham, MA and Nashoba Valley Medical Center in Ayer, MA.   

O’Connor holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management with a minor in marketing communications from the University of Phoenix in San Jose.

Vinson relocates to the Central Coast from Virginia where she spent the past three years as the Director of Case Management at Southside Regional Medical Center in Petersburg, VA. There she was instrumental in designing a computerized case management software system that strategically assisted that hospital in meeting its quality goals. Prior to that she held the same position at Kindred Hospital in Richmond, VA, was Assistant Director, Complex Care Program at Retreat Hospital in Richmond, VA and spent 17 years as a registered nurse at Medical College of Virginia Hospital, the last eight as a case manager.

Vinson earned her Bachelor of Sience in Nursing at the University of Virginia and also holds a Masters in Business Administration from Averett University.
