Otsego Memorial Hospital, Gaylord, has been recognized as one of the nation’s Most Wired Hospitals, according to the results of the 2013 Most Wired Survey released in the July issue of Hospitals & Health Networks magazine.

The survey asked hospitals and health systems nationwide to answer questions regarding their IT initiatives. Respondents completed 659 surveys representing 1,713 hospitals.

Otsego Memorial has made the list five out of the last six years and is one of 16 hospitals in Michigan to receive this year’s award.

Steven Deller, professor of nursing at West Shore Community College in Scottville, has achieved credentialing as a Certified Nurse Educator (CNE) by the National League for Nursing.

For academic nurse educators, national certification establishes nursing education as a specialty area of practice and communicates to students, peers and the academic and health care communities that the highest standards of teaching excellence are being met by the college. Obtaining CNE certification is the highest mark of distinction for nursing faculty.

Deller received an associate of science degree in nursing from Highland Park Community College. He then completed the bridge RN-MSN program through the University of Phoenix. Prior to teaching, Deller worked in the Henry Ford Health System in the Detroit area for 15 years.

In 2001, Deller moved to Scottville with his family to begin his nursing teaching career at WSCC. In 2011, he was the first nursing instructor to receive the WSCC Faculty Excellence Award and is the first WSCC nursing instructor to earn the CNE credential.
