April Bonata, RN, has returned back home to Delta to go back to work for Delta County Memorial Hospital as the manager of Stork's Landing. She has been a nurse for 19 years and in obstetrics for 12 years with extensive hands-on experience with centralized monitoring, surgical skills which include circulating and recovery of cesarean deliveries and charting via electronic health records (EHR).
She was raised in Delta as a child, attended Delta-Montrose Technical College for her LPN degree and took a satellite RN program in Delta from Trinidad State Junior College.
Her health career began with Delta County Memorial Hospital — at age 15 she was a candy striper, a CNA at age 17, and an LPN at 19. In 1996 she worked for the Delta hospital for several months as an RN before accepting a position with the state hospital in Pueblo. Most recently she worked in labor and delivery at Garden Park Medical Center in Gulfport, Miss.
Bonata is excited to be coming home to Delta and has many plans and goals for the future of Stork's Landing. One major goal is to have centralized monitoring in place. Another goal that Bonata shared is to work closely with Dr. Keller, Dr. Pevoto and Delta Family Practice to promote natural childbirth and offer childbirth classes and education.
"The obstetrics physicians were actively involved with the interview and decision making process for a new Stork's Landing manager. I am pleased that April Bonata accepted the manager position and has started working at DCMH already," stated Jody Roeber, RN, MSN and chief clinical officer.
"I would like to thank interim manager Stephanie Conway, RN, for the fine job she has done and for the Stork's Landing staff while we worked to fill the manager position," Roeber said.blog comments powered by Disqus
