Gonzalez named VP of mission, ethics at Mercy Hospital Ada

Ada —

Tino Gonzalez has been named Mercy Hospital Ada’s vice president of mission and ethics. Gonzalez has served as chief nursing officer at the hospital (formerly Valley View Regional Hospital) for four years and has been with the organization for eight years. 

Gonzalez, an Army-trained nurse, received his bachelor’s degree in nursing from the University of Phoenix in Santa Teresa, N.M., his master’s degree in nursing education from the University of Phoenix, and his master’s degree in business administration from Texas Woman’s University. He is currently studying theology at the Aquinas Institute of Theology in St. Louis, Mo.

Prior to his time in Ada, Gonzalez was an active duty soldier and a civil service employee for more than ten years. As a civilian, Gonzalez worked as an intensive care unit nurse at William Beaumont Army Medical Center and as a contract nurse within the West Texas community. As an Army active duty soldier, Gonzalez led a number of areas and health care departments, including an orthopedic clinic, ICU, post-anesthesia care unit and a critical care recovery element within a 20 member U.S. Army forward surgical team in Seoul, South Korea.

“Tino has been with our organization for several years and knows our culture. We are excited that he is transitioning into this new position,” said Kent Rogers, Mercy Hospital Ada president. “His dedication to Mercy’s mission and his compassion for our patients and co-workers make him an invaluable resource to our organization and community. Our health ministry is committed to the healing mission of Jesus Christ and having this position in Ada demonstrates our dedication to that mission originated by our founder, Catherine McCauley.”
