Columbus, GA, September 21, 2016, William Reynolds, Unit Director, Director of Dialysis and Hemodialysis of St. Francis Hospital, has been recognized by Elite American Health Professionals, for dedication, achievement and leadership in nephrology.
Mr. Reynolds became a registered nurse in 1996 and has provided health care services in the field since then. Prior to becoming a nurse and while working as one, Mr. Reynolds served in the military for nearly three decades. He currently is a member of the National Guard and has been for the past 20 years. While serving in active duty with the U.S. Army, Mr. Reynolds was a human resources technician. In 2005, he was deployed to Kuwait during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Upon leaving the Army, he achieved the rank as a sergeant. Presently, he is a chief warrant officer III and trains potential warrant officer candidates at a military academy in Alabama.
The decision to go into nursing was cemented during his time in the military. While serving, Mr. Reynolds took master fitness and combat lifesavers courses. Igniting a passion to help others, he began looking in to health care as a means to continue changing people’s lives. From there, he pursued an education in nursing with an emphasis on administration and nephrology. He earned an Associate of Science in nursing from Southern Union State Community College in 1995. He is certified in basic life support, advanced cardiovascular life support and medical-surgical nursing. Additionally, Mr. Reynolds is certified in water treatment in nephrology.
As a unit director and the director of dialysis and hemodialysis at St. Francis Hospital, Mr. Reynolds engages in a series of tasks. He supervises medical-surgical renal, chemotherapy and stroke nursing, as well as handles hiring, staffing, payroll, human resources and evaluations. Additionally, Mr. Reynolds lends his expertise in ensuring that staff members remain accredited, while also training, preempting for students pursuing a Bachelor of Science in nursing and managing clinical duties. He also has a hand in educating patients and families, and does this while managing contract nurses as the director of dialysis and hemodialysis. An account of his work responsibilities would be incomplete without mentioning his role in negotiating, managing nurse files and lab equipment, managing programs, ensuring equipment and water safety and hiring nurse subcontractors.
