By Mindo - 10th Jan 2019 | 27 views

The TUH Board made the announcement following an open competition initiated last November following the stepping down of Mr David Slevin.

“I would like to congratulate Lucy on her appointment as Chief Executive. Her new role has come at an exciting time for the Hospital as we move forward into a new year with a number of planned service developments to enhance the delivery of high quality, safe treatment and care to our patients,” said Mr Liam Dowdall, Chairman of the TUH Board

Responding, Lucy Nugent said she was delighted to take up the new role “at a very exciting time for the organization”.

“The various roles I have worked in leading up to this position have provided me with a unique insight into how a hospital works and more importantly the importance of working together as a team.” 

Ms Nugent joined TUH as Chief Operations Officer in 2014 and moved to the role of Deputy CEO in 2016. Prior to joining TUH she worked in the Acute Hospitals sector as Head of Quality Assurance & Risk Management, Clinical & Patient Services Manager in the Children’s University Hospital Temple Street. Prior to that she worked in a number of nursing roles.
