Methodist Healthcare is excited to announce that the latest addition to the Methodist Healthcare family, Methodist Hospital | Landmark, is set to open at the end of August. Formerly Forest Park Medical Center, Methodist Healthcare purchased the 8.4-acre property in 2018, located at the very desirable corridor at Interstate 10 and Loop 1604.

The hospital will provide one of the most unique and personalized patient and physician healthcare experiences in the region. At 155,000-square-feet with 54 beds, eight ORs, 27 private patient rooms, and 14 VIP suites, Methodist Hospital | Landmark will deliver a true concierge experience with comfort amenities such as on-demand room service and a soothing environment to promote healing.

Angela Saif will serve as the hospital’s new Chief Nursing Officer. Saif is a tenured senior nurse executive leader, bringing twenty years of diverse hospital leadership experience and immense compassion for people, patients, and a dedication to the nursing profession.

Prior to her appointment as CNO, Saif served as the Associate Chief Nursing Officer for Methodist Hospital, overseeing over 23 departments and 900 full-time employees, including inpatient progressive care, telemetry, medical-surgical units as well as dialysis, apheresis, staffing, nursing administration, and rapid response.

During her time with Methodist Hospital, Saif made great improvements in enhancing employee engagement and strengthening operations. Through her leadership, she restructured vascular access team staffing and workflow to encourage decreased central line utilization while effectively decreasing the use of contract labor by 90 percent, which resulted in an annual projected savings of $650,000. Saif also helped implement alternate nursing care models utilizing LVNs in the inpatient setting to bridge the gap in the nursing workforce in the inpatient telemetry units.

"We are excited to have Angie join Methodist Hospital | Landmark as Chief Nursing Officer. Her strategic thinking, extensive nursing experience, and leadership skills will be invaluable in leading our incredible nursing team. I look forward to her future contributions as we continue serving the needs of our community," says Ryan Simpson, Chief Executive Officer of Methodist Hospital.

Saif has a Doctorate of Nursing Practice in Healthcare System Administration from the University of Tennessee. She is a Certified Healthcare Operations Professional (DNV-GL) as well as a Trauma Certified Registered Nurse (TCRN). Saif is also a member of the American College of Healthcare Executives as well as the American Organization of Nurse Leaders.

As CNO over Methodist Hospital | Landmark, Saif will lead patient care for specialized surgical services including bariatrics, breast reconstruction, orthopedics, gynecology, colorectal, neurosurgery, and general surgery.
