Tom Curley, MSN, RN, NE-BC, has been promoted to Stroke Center Manager after serving as Interim Manager for the Stroke Program for the past two months.
Curley started his 30-year career at NHRMC as a nurse in the Coronary Care Unit, later becoming the unit’s Coordinator, then Manager of CCU/Chest Pain Center/Outpatient Services Unit. He later transitioned to Clinical Outcomes, where he has worked as an Outcomes Manager for the past 12 years of his career, with the most recent 3 years being assigned exclusively to the Stroke Center.
“Tom’s involvement with the Stroke Center has been invaluable over recent years,” said Kerry Lamb, Administrator Neurosciences Service Line. “His dedication to ensuring optimal stroke patient care and excellence within the Stroke Program through continuous performance improvement have contributed to the award-winning Stroke Program we have in place today.

His responsibilities include evaluating best practice, assessing work flow, organizing activities, and ensuring quality outcomes are achieved.
