I am pleased to announce Jelinda Gose, MSN, RN as the new Chief Nursing Officer for Medical Center of Trinity, effective February 18, 2021.

Jelinda currently serves as the Associate Chief Nursing Officer for The Medical Center of Aurora, a 346-bed facility part of the HCA-Continental Division.

Jelinda has been with HCA for 17 years and is a graduate of the HCA Executive Development Program for developing Chief Nursing Officers. Her previous experience includes serving as the Associate Chief Nursing Officer for Wesley Healthcare, Director of Telemetry and Central Monitoring for the HCA Mid America Division and leadership roles in ICU, Telemetry, Critical Care and Emergency Services. Nursing is her passion and she will be bringing to Medical Center of Trinity a leadership focused on collaboration, dedication, team and a patient centered environment.

Jelinda earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Southwestern College and her Masters of Science in Nursing-Quality through an Accelerated Program from Mid America Nazarene University. She has been married for 23 years to husband Kevin and has 2 daughters (Morgan, 22 and Lindsay, 20). She enjoys reading, playing with her dogs, bowling, boating and listening to music.

“I am thrilled to have Jelinda joining our team” said Tripp Owings, CEO. “Jelinda's focus on mentoring and caregiver growth both through clinical expertise and leadership development will continue to support the compassionate culture which has such a strong foundation here at Medical Center of Trinity.”
