John Mier, who was previously the assistant chief nursing officer at Bayshore Medical Center, has been promoted to chief nursing officer at Texas Orthopedic Hospital (TOH), effective Nov. 5.
An experienced nursing leader, Mier is skilled in implementing standards of nursing care to improve patient safety, quality, physician relations and customer service.
“The previous CNO, Troy Sarver, had been with TOH for 17 years, but he relocated to North Cypress Medical Center when HCA Houston Healthcare acquired that facility in September,” said Eric Becker, TOH’s chief executive officer. “I’m pleased John has agreed to join TOH, and I know his expertise will be a great benefit to our patients.”
Before becoming assistant chief nursing officer at Bayshore Medical Center, Mier was the director of nursing at Conroe Regional Medical Center for seven years. Prior to that, he was the director of nursing at Houston Northwest Medical Center for five years, and a registered nurse for another five years.
Mier earned an MBA from the University of Phoenix in 2015, where he was a member of the Delta Mu Delta honor society. He also earned a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing from Lamar University in 1999. He is a member of the Texas Nurses Association and American Nurse Association.
