Beth Rutledge, BS, RN

Chief Nursing Officer

A graduate with a BS degree from David Lipscomb University, Beth also received an Associates Degree in Nursing with honors, as Valedictorian (magna cum laude), from Columbia State Community College. She is a lifetime inductee of the National Honor Society, Gamma Beta Phi, and is a member of Empire Who’s Who Among Executive and Professional Women in Healthcare and Nursing. Her professional nursing experience is in critical care and orthopaedics. “The best thing about nursing is having the privilege to uphold the standards of my nursing profession and to combine my knowledge, compassion, and understanding to serve my patients. Nursing is my way to express how much I genuinely care for the patient. It is my mission to make a positive difference in every patient’s life, both directly and indirectly.”

Beth is married and lives in Leiper’s Fork with her husband, several horses, cats, dogs and fish. She has been involved in showing horses on a regional, national and world level for over 30 years. Her other hobby is shopping…in a phrase she says, “I love to shop!”
