Natalie Fox Appointed Manager of Clinical Operations for Pediatrics

Natalie Fox, pediatric nurse practitioner at the University of South Alabama Midtown Clinic, was recently appointed manager of clinical operations for pediatrics at USA Health.

Fox’s appointment follows Debbie Gilbert— who previously served as manager of clinical operations for pediatrics and will retire later this year.

“Debbie Gilbert announced her retirement after many years of loyal service to USA Health,” said Howard Holcomb, assistant administrator for pediatrics at USA Health. “We thank her for her many contributions and wish her well in her upcoming retirement.”

Holcomb said the general pediatric division at USA Health is moving toward patient centered medical home (PCMH) certification, a designation that rewards teamwork, quality improvement and patient satisfaction. Fox has been coordinating certification efforts and assisting the Stanton Road Clinic and Family Medicine Center as they also seek certification as part of a multi-site application process.

“We are excited to have Natalie join our management team,” Holcomb said. “Her combination of supervisory skills, clinical insight and expertise with PCMH is appreciated.”

Fox earned both her bachelor of science in nursing and master of science in nursing from USA.  She is a member of Sigma Theta Tau International Nursing Honor Society and the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners.

She will continue to see patients on a part-time basis.
