Crouse Health has appointed Twiggy Eure to the position of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Recruitment/Retention Coordinator for the organization.
In this new role, Eure will coordinate and guide efforts to define, assess, foster and cultivate diversity and inclusion at Crouse.
Eure will also develop and oversee programs, services and initiatives designed to promote diversity and inclusion throughout the Crouse Health system. She will work closely with the hospital’s recruitment coordinators and management team to support their efforts in attracting more candidates of a diverse background to Crouse.
Eure will also support Pomeroy College of Nursing in its efforts to attract diverse applicants to the college. Additionally, she will mentor and assist staff members with opportunities to advance within the Crouse organization.
Eure most recently served as Talent Management Coordinator/Personnel Analyst for the Syracuse City School District. She has also held the positions of Practice Manager/Human Resources Manager for St. Joseph’s Physician Health, PC, and Executive Team Member for Destiny USA. A recipient of the 2014 YWCA Diversity Achiever’s Award and graduate of Leadership Greater Syracuse, Eure holds a master’s degree in Instructional Design, Development and Evaluation from Syracuse University.
“Crouse should be known in our community as an organization that treats and serves all people without bias or judgment. That is the basis of our mission and supports our long-standing commitment and responsibility not only to our patients and their families, but also to those who work here,” states Crouse CEO Kimberly Boynton.
According to Boynton, the position reflects Crouse’s strategic commitment to enhancing the organization’s culture by focusing on the important issues of diversity and inclusion. “This is not a ‘training’ initiative; rather, it is a vital part of who we are as an organization, and how we position Crouse for success in the future. We’re excited to have Twiggy join us to help develop a structure that supports this element of the Crouse culture.”
In 2014, Crouse formed the Diversity and Inclusion Committee, comprised of employees from multiple areas as a way to bring attention to helping Crouse become a more diverse employer, with a goal to better serve both the organization and the community. Crouse has also signed on as a participant of the American Hospital Association’s ‘Pledge for Equity’ initiative, which aims to address disparities in care delivery and increase diversity in hospital leadership and governance.
