Katie Jo Hogenmiller, Director of Med Surg at Ste. Genevieve County Memorial Hospital. I was born and raised in Ste. Genevieve and this community and hospital has always been a huge part of my life. I have 12 years of experience in Healthcare. My career started as a CNA in 2008 at Ste. Genevieve County Memorial Hospital where I decided that nursing is definitely the career path I want to take. I graduated from SEMO with my BSN in May, 2011. I worked a Southeast Health from 2011-2015 on a Cardiothoracic/Oncology Stepdown Unit. I was Lead Charge Nurse of the unit for 3 years. I couldn’t wait to share my experience with Ste. Genevieve Hospital and I accepted a full time position at SGCMH in January, 2015. I became House Supervisor in 2016 and accepted the Director position in October, 2017. I have been working hard on Swingbed/Transitional Care initiatives.
