Cedars-Sinai Medical Center nursing leader Linda Burnes Bolton today was named the medical center’s inaugural James R. Klinenberg, M.D., and Lynn Klinenberg Linkin Chair in Nursing. “There are very few professionals who have a sure grasp of policy and practice, who navigate Washington, D.C., Sacramento, board rooms, classrooms, laboratories, patient care units and community clinics with equal assurance,” said Cedars-Sinai President and CEO Thomas Priselac. “Her devotion to patients, and the staff that care for them, is unwavering.” Burnes Bolton is chief nursing executive, vice president for nursing, chief nursing officer and director of nursing research at the Los Angeles-based medical center. She also holds positions as an associate clinical professor at the University of California San Francisco and Los Angeles Schools of Nursing, and is a member of the National Academy of Medicine. Burnes Bolton also is a member of the AHA’s Equity of Care Committee and immediate past president of the AHA’s American Organization of Nurse Executives subsidiary. She received the 2016 TRUST Award from the AHA’s Health Research & Educational Trust affiliate.
