Janice Finney, RN, BSN, is the General Manager for Texas Gulf Coast Medical Group (TGCMG). Her duties include all operational and financial aspects of the practice. Janice is truly one of our own having started her career in the infancy of Texas Gulf Coast Medical Group as an office nurse, becoming our nurse manager, representing the organization as our patient liaison at Clear Lake Regional Hospital and in 2004 promoted to General Manager. During her TGCMG tenure, Janice initiated our telephone triage program, and served as our clinical educator, teaching CPR and Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS). Her exceptional abilities resulted in the establishment of our nurse/medical assistant training program. Janice single-handedly identified specific educational needs, developed policies and procedures, designed and taught the curriculum and conducted the proficiency/appraisal examination for our clinical staff.
Janice's educational career, remarkable as well, spans almost 30 years. She began her career in medicine as a medical assistant. Her insatiable desire to know and understand more about medicine and most particularly how she could optimize patient care delivery, prompted her to become a licensed vocational nurse and then to obtain her diploma as a registered nurse. She also was a certified x-ray technician; also in 2003 she graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston with her Bachelor's of Science Degree in Nursing! True to form, Janice continues to pursue a Master's Degree in Nursing.
In addition to her experience at Texas Gulf Coast Medical Group, Janice was the Assistant Head Nurse at The Methodist Hospital's Emergency Department where she managed 40 employees and has also been the manager for urgent care centers for a major Houston hospital system. She holds a Certified Emergency Nurse (CEN) designation in addition to her BSN. Her experience also includes critical care, utilization review and medico legal review, accounting and medical records
The depth and breadth of Janice's hands-on experience in both clinical and operational processes is valuable to our organization and essential to the operation of our medical practice. She is a valued resource for physicians, staff and patients. Her indomitable spirit and optimism are an inspiration to all. Her experience combined with exceptional clinical skills gives her unique insight into patient care priorities. Without exception, any physician or employee at Texas Gulf Coast Medical Group would like to have Janice as “their nurse.” Janice says her management goals are patient satisfaction and quality health care.
