Beaty holds Clark in the same high regard. “Bobbi is an excellent nurse and an excellent nurse leader,” Beaty says. “We worked together at Richmond Memorial Hospital and in the Medical Oncologyprogram, and we have always had a great working relationship. We also respect each other as individuals, so I look forward to another great team effort here on the Hoke Campus.”
