June 25, 2019 – Southeast Georgia Health System prides itself on
the tradition of developing the strengths of existing team members and
promoting from within, demonstrated by the promotion of Marodta Owens,
MSN, BSN, R.N., to Director of Nursing at the
Senior Care Center-St. Marys.
As Director of Nursing, Owens’ areas of responsibility include supervising
nurses, overseeing infection control, maintaining records and budgets,
as well as providing direct patient care when needed.
Owens graduated from Georgia Southern University in 2004 and began her
career as a graduate nurse on a telemetry unit at St. Vincent’s
Medical Center in Jacksonville, Florida. During her three years at St.
Vincent’s Medical Center, she was promoted to unit charge nurse
and served as an assigned preceptor. She later left St. Vincent’s
to explore travel nursing throughout the state of Florida.
In 2008, Owens joined Southeast Georgia Health System as a full-time cardiac
telemetry nurse. She later transferred to a surgical floor, where she
continued to learn and grow in her field. During this time, she also worked
as a lab and clinical instructor at the College of Coastal Georgia. In
2014, Owens completed her Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) from Walden
University, and in 2016, she transitioned into long-term care as a nurse
supervisor at the Senior Care Center-St. Marys.
Owens continues to learn and grow in this ever changing world of health
care. She is currently enrolled at Capella University and plans to complete
her Master of Business Administration by the end of 2019.
