HSHS Sacred Heart and St. Joseph’s hospitals announce the appointment of Travis Christman as Chief Nursing Officer.
Christman has been part of the HSHS family since 2009 when he started as a registered nurse in the post anesthesia care unit at HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital in Eau Claire. Since then, he has held numerous leadership positions including director of cardiology, progressive care, oncology, critical care and cardiopulmonary services.
“From the time I started CNA work, I was convinced nursing is what I wanted to do,” says Christman. “I find it to be a very honorable profession – helping people when they need you most. Now, I have the opportunity to be the leader for nurses and other clinical team members and hope to impact them and patients in a positive way.”
Christman is a graduate of the nursing program at Chippewa Valley Technical College (CVTC) in Eau Claire and serves on the CVTC Alumni Association Board as well as the advisory committee for the Open Educational Resource Nursing textbooks program being led by CVTC.
