Broadmoor Medical Lodge Names Loava McCarthy Director of Nursing
Broadmoor Medical Lodge, an upscale post-hospital recovery, skilled nursing and long-term care community scheduled to open early 2013, has named Loava McCarthy director of nursing.
“Loava has served as the director of nursing at another one of our healthcare communities in Rockwall County, and we are excited that she has accepted the position as director of nursing for our brand new community, Broadmoor Medical Lodge, that is opening this year,” said Lewis. “She has a true passion for not only nursing but for serving the senior population. I know Loava will ensure that the guests and residents of Broadmoor receive the best care possible.”
McCarthy received a bachelor’s degree in business management, as well as a bachelor’s degree in nursing and an associate’s degree in electronics. After a career as an electronic technician and also as a supervisor of postal operations for the U.S. Postal Service, McCarthy took a different path when her daughter was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. In 2004, she was hired as the director of nursing of a small, long-term care facility and helped the community receive two deficiency-free surveys. In 2008, McCarthy served as a corporate nurse traveling to nine different long-term care communities helping train and educate DON’s on how to best do their jobs. It was in 2010 that she was hired as the director of nursing for SCC’s Royse City Health and Rehabilitation community.
“I love the people of SCC Healthcare Group and what they stand for,” said McCarthy. “I have enjoyed working with the elderly population in all areas of my nursing career, and they have always held a special place in my heart. I will always strive to give the best care with dignity and respect. I want Broadmoor to be the type of community that people would choose second, only to their home.”
