Carson Tahoe Welcomes New Vice President & Chief Nursing Officer, Joanne Miller

Carson Tahoe Health (CTH) is proud to announce Joanne Miller as its new Vice President (VP) and Chief Nursing Officer (CNO). She brings with her more than 30 years of hospital operations experience and nursing excellence. Before joining the CTH family, she served as VP & CNO of Patient Care for Johns Hopkins Medicine/Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington D.C. From the east coast to the west coast, Joanne says the most exciting thing about calling Nevada her new home is the majestic mountains, the beautiful landscape, and the fresh air!

“I was seeking an opportunity in an organization whose mission and core values mirrored my own,” says Miller. “I want to make significant contributions that fill my passions for eliminating preventable harm, improving the patient experience and creating a healthy work environment for all. Carson Tahoe’s way of treating the whole person; mind, body, and soul resonates with my proven outcomes for improving staff engagement and patient experience.”

In addition to healthcare running in her blood (Joanne’s great grandfather was a physician), she was also inspired at a young age to serve beside caring and compassionate nurses, like those that helped her younger brother when he was diagnosed with life-threatening cancer at the age of 12.

After her decision to pursue nursing, she has had much success … holding a Doctorate of Nursing Practice from Drexel University, a Master’s Degree in Nursing Administration from the University of Hartford, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing from Mount Saint Mary College. Joanne is a transformational leader who after working in both major academic health systems and community-based hospitals, truly believes in the care experience, how it affects both patient and family, and innovative approaches for successful outcomes & care delivery models.

“Joanne has an abundance of experience and because she has spent most of her career on the East Coast, she looks at the world differently,” says Alan Garrett, CTH President & Chief Executive Officer. “I’m excited to see how that may contribute to our vision for Carson Tahoe and care in this community.”
