Anita Henson, RN, BSN

Nurse Consultant

Prior to joining MCG, Anita worked for Mercy Hospital in Springfield, Missouri, as an RN for nine years. For eight of those years, she served as a charge nurse, leading and directing others on her ASC and Surgical Intensive Care Unit teams. She then spent two years as Manager of Surgical Services at Mercy in an eight-OR suite, multi-specialty, outpatient surgery center. For two more years, she served as Director of Surgical Services for a similarly sized center. Now, as a nurse consultant, Anita supports clinical directors, making sure that each ASC we serve is functioning in the safest, most effective manner in conjunction with the regulations the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care have in place. A major component of her job is to assist these ASCs from start to finish with anything clinical and to educate and prepare them for survey and accreditation.

Anita earned an Associate of Applied Science in Nursing from Three Rivers College in Poplar Bluff, MO, before completing a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Oklahoma Wesleyan University.

Family means everything to Anita. She and her family enjoy being outdoors and are diehard Kansas City Chiefs Football fans who try to get to Arrowhead Stadium as often as their schedules allow.
