Karla Ramberger Named Chief Nursing Officer at Methodist Dallas Medical Center

Methodist Dallas Medical Center announces Karla Ramberger, RN, as its new chief nursing officer (CNO). She will take over the position effective Nov. 7, moving from her current position as director of the Emergency Department at Methodist Mansfield Medical Center.

“We welcome Karla to this important role at Methodist Dallas and know that she brings an expansive and impressive array of experience and skills to serve our campus as chief nursing officer,” says Methodist Dallas President Laura Irvine, FACHE. “Karla has been an integral part of our leadership team at the Methodist Mansfield campus, participating on numerous committees and chairing and facilitating the Methodist Mansfield Nurse Practice Council. Methodist has benefited greatly from her contributions to our organization and I am confident in her ability to continue to serve Methodist and Methodist Dallas well in her new role.”

Ramberger holds a Bachelor of Science in nursing degree from the University of Texas at Arlington, and is on track to complete her Masters of Nursing Administration from the University of Texas at Tyler. She joined Methodist Health System in 1994 as a nurse intern in the Emergency Department (ED) at Methodist Dallas. From there, she earned several promotions, including roles as ED clinical coordinator and director of risk management. Under Ramberger’s leadership, the Methodist Mansfield Medical Center campus has achieved many milestones, including construction of an ED expansion, designation as a Cycle III Chest Pain Center, achievement of excellent lower than national average rates for patients in Left Without Being Seen (LWOB) statistics, and improved door-to-balloon times for STEMI heart attack patients.
