MBA, MSN, RN, Chief Clinical and Compliance Officer, General Healthcare Resources
Peter Mecouch is a seasoned nursing leader with over 25 years of nursing experience. He practiced clinically in both nephrology and critical care nursing. Peter attended Roxborough Memorial School of Nursing and holds a master’s degree in Business and Nursing. In his role at General Healthcare Resources, he provides clinical and professional leadership to all business lines and aligns select divisions with Joint Commission standards to maintain accreditation.
What can Pennsylvania policymakers do to ensure equitable access to quality healthcare?
Further supporting and implementing the Nursing Compact license within the state would help bring available nurses to Pennsylvania in a much more fluid and timely manner. Discussions at the state level supporting national nursing licensure would also better improve the ability to support both urban and rural needs throughout the state.
When and why did you decide to pursue a career in healthcare?
I entered nursing school right out of high school. I knew early on that I wanted to be in a field where I could apply my interest in science and be someone providing care to others. I had strong influences from my mother, my aunt, and my grandmother, who were all nurses.
How do you see the healthcare industry evolving in the next five years?
I believe that healthcare will become available through more non-traditional access points. I am hopeful that companies, healthcare providers, and leaders will meet the community where they need to be met. I also believe that a strong focus on preventive care will be incorporated into these alternate access points.
