Congratulations to Angela Newman, RN, MSN, CMSRN, for being named a 2015 Woman of Western Wake by Cary Magazine. Nursing director of the Women’s Pavilion & Birthplace at WakeMed Cary Hospital and a Cary resident, Newman was chosen for this award due to her many accomplishments as a nurse leader and contributions to WakeMed Health & Hospitals as well as the patients we serve.
In an article about Newman included in the September/October 2015 issue of Cary Magazine, she was commended for her passion to lead and her efforts to share in a collaborative environment with her staff of nurses. The magazine also praised Newman for leading an effort in 2011 to create an outpatient clinic for patients needing blood transfusions at WakeMed Cary Hospital, which allowed them to spend less time in the hospital. A few years later, she was named into her current position and thrives at taking care of, guiding and supporting a team of about 130 staff nurses who provide labor and delivery and post-partum/newborn baby care. On average, her team at WakeMed Cary Hospital assists with approximately 2,300 births per year. Additionally, Newman was praised for working with a committee of nurse advisors to ensure that all of her nurses feel comfortable coming forward with ideas that will enhance patient care and helping turn those ideas into reality.
Mother to young daughter Allie, Newman also works hard to balance her work life with her home life. She stays busy in the Cary community raising Allie and being involved in her daughter’s activities.
