In November of 2017, Morrow moved into her current role as Vice President of Ancillary Services and now serves on the St. Bernards Senior Leadership Administrative team. She was directly responsible for the development of the Transitional Care and Staff Support departments. She also played an instrumental role in the development and implementation of the St. Bernards Telemedicine program, which enables the health system to offer specialty care to communities in the region.
