Connie Wright has joined the staff of TSRHC as our new vice president of human resources. Wright comes from Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas, where she was a human resources officer since 2010. Before that, she was executive director of human resources at Richardson Regional Medical Center, now Methodist Richardson Medical Center.
At Presbyterian, Wright’s team focused on a high performance environment where people, learning and fun were the priorities. This resulted in an employee-centric culture that garnered engagement scores at the 99th percentile nationally, the Press Ganey Beacon of Excellence Award and numerous Best Places to Work accolades.
Wright is thrilled to be in an environment where she can contribute to the welfare of children. “My passion is children – both my own and those I have helped through volunteer roles,” she says. “I love the mission of ‘giving children back their childhood.’ It’s powerful and emphasizes the importance of the work we do here at Scottish Rite Hospital. I have already picked up on the sense of community and family. It feels like home.”
“Connie’s passion and professionalism makes her the perfect fit for our expert, caring approach to helping children with pediatric orthopedic conditions,” said TSRHC President and CEO Robert L. Walker. “That culture extends from our physicians, nurses, technicians and researchers to the entire staff. Connie is here to ensure that we continue to improve support for our world-class medical team.”
Wright earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Texas at Austin, and a master’s in business administration from Texas Women’s University in Denton.
