Life Care Center of Hixson, a skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility, is welcoming a new director of nursing, Molly Findley.

“I love it here,” said Findley. “People have the luxury of recuperating in an atmosphere of beauty with a family of caregivers who genuinely care. The staff is warm, professional and fun to work with.”

Before stepping into this leadership role, Ms. Findley served as director of nursing at Spring City Care and Rehabilitation Center in Spring City, Tenn.

A registered nurse since 1979, she has 19 years of intensive care experience and 13 years of long-term care experience.

She has also worked in education, staff development and wound care in Tennessee, South Carolina, Virginia and Colorado.

Ms. Findley and her husband, Mike, are moving to the area from Evensville, Tenn. They have four grown children.
