Women of Achievement – Jan Hill

Jan Hill
Jackson Hospital

Jan Hill’s personal and professional lives intersected when her husband underwent coronary artery bypass grafting surgery at Jackson Hospital. As the vice president of patient care services for Jackson, her responsibilities include oversight of patient care throughout the hospital. She says, “My volunteer work really centers around community outreach activities at Jackson. I enjoy getting to know our community and giving them a person to reach out to if they are ever in our hospital. My favorite event is the Annual Heart Screening in February. Since my husband underwent his surgery, this event is very personal to me.”

Born in Montgomery, at Jackson no less, Hill was raised in Millbrook. She is a three-time Troy University graduate with associate and bachelor degrees in nursing and a master’s in applied management. Her medical career began at Jackson as a phlebotomist. Over the years, Hill has worked in multiple nursing areas and is proud to say she is still capable of working as a bedside nurse. A highlight of her career was working alongside Dr. George Kontos to develop the Cardiovascular Open Heart program at Jackson in 1999. She has been in her current role for nearly a year and a half. Hill shares, “I most enjoy educating and mentoring both new and seasoned nurses to become leaders.”

Hobbies outside of work include landscaping and DIY projects at home. She says, “I reside in a home that belonged to my grandmother, and my mother lives beside me. Every day I come home from work is like being hugged by my grandmother.”

Hill and her husband have three children and one grandson. She says, “I am firm believer in setting your goals and sharing your wins with those who have gotten you there. I am blessed to have a husband who has allowed me to follow my dream, children who have exceeded my dreams for them, a mother who has always been proud of me, and lastly the Jackson Hospital family, who make every day an exciting and rewarding experience. I would not be here without any of them.”
