Melissa Johnson Bids Farewell

Melissa Johnson

Melissa Johnson, CPMSM, CPCS, manager of Medical Staff Services, is departing from her role at Children’s. Her last day is June 1. Melissa’s tenure at Children’s has spanned more than ten years. During that time, she supervised the continuing medical education and graduate medical education departments.

“An organization’s credentialing and privileging system is the foundation of quality patient care. Long before the Culture of Safety was started hospital-wide, the work done by Melissa and her team ensured that providers being credentialed to care for the children at our facility are well-qualified,” said Jay Snow, M.D., Pediatric Hospital Medicine, and former medical staff president.

Prior to her work at Children’s, Melissa worked in credentialing at Nebraska Medicine and Nebraska Credentials Verification Organization (NCVO) in Omaha, as well as in Longview, Wash., and Kansas City. Her career in medical staff services spans 25 years.

The next chapter of Melissa’s career will include consulting work in the medical credentialing field and partnering with her husband as he launches a new business. Please wish Melissa well as she embarks on a new phase of life and thank her for her decade of service to Children’s.
