Carr receives Clinical Leadership Award

JACKSON HOLE, WYO – St. John’s Medical Center announced that oncology nurse practitioner Kerry Carr has been awarded the Outstanding Clinical Leadership Award by University of Utah Health in Salt Lake City, UT.

The award is presented annually to individuals in the region who exemplify outstanding leadership and care for the patients they serve. Carr has been a family nurse practitioner (FNP-BC) in the community for more than 20 years, seeing patients initially in private practice before joining St. John’s Medical Center seven years ago. She was on the provider team with St. John’s Internal Medicine before becoming board certified as an advanced oncology nurse practitioner (AOCNP) and focusing her practice on cancer care.

“Kerry is so deserving of this award, established to recognize providers who go above and beyond in their field of expertise for their patients,” said St. John’s CEO Paul Beaupre, MD. “With Kerry as our full-time provider working with Dr. John Ward and the entire oncology nursing and support team, our program has achieved clinical excellence, added important programs, services, and equipment, and earned very high patient satisfaction.”

St. John’s Medical Center is an affiliate of University of Utah Health and the Huntsman Cancer Institute. The St. John’s cancer program recently expanded with the introduction of brachytherapy, a form of radiation oncology treatment for certain breast, prostate, skin, and gynecological cancers.

In addition, the cancer center has submitted its application to become an accredited cancer program with the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer.
