Jun. 28, 2022; HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. – AdventHealth is excited to welcome Timothy Bell, RN as the Director of Surgery Services for AdventHealth Hendersonville. Bell brings his exceptional leadership skills and his motivation to provide safe, competent, and compassionate surgical care to his role at AdventHealth Hendersonville.
Bell’s career in surgical services began 31 years ago as a perioperative transporter and has steadily progressed to his current role as the Director of Surgery Services. A native of Western North Carolina, Bell earned his bachelor’s degree in Nursing from Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, NC and went on to earn his master’s degree in Nursing Leadership from there as well.
Bell is passionate about serving the community by providing excellent and safe surgical care. “I am there to ensure everyone is treated the way I would want to be treated in surgical care,” Bell shares. He was attracted to AdventHealth’s excellent surgical care, leadership structure, and shared values.
“Effective management requires cohesive and collaborative teams,” Bell explains, “And as a team lead, I have built these vital relationships with my team, physicians, and most importantly, the patients whom I serve.”
“Tim not only brings a wealth of experience regarding Surgical Services, but he also understands the opportunities found at a growing community hospital like AdventHealth Hendersonville,” shares Maureen Dzialo, MS, RN, NE-BC, Vice President of Clinical Services and Chief Nursing Officer. “Tim’s vast experience is strengthening the services we already provide to a growing number of people, while helping us grow these services to meet the needs of our community for years to come.”
AdventHealth’s promise to provide whole-person care – body, mind and spirit, matches Bell’s approach to health care. He says he strives to “Listen and care for all aspects of mind, body, and spirit. And provide honest, trustworthy patient-centered care.”
Another way Bell likes to care for people is through food. He enjoys smoking BBQ and feeding friends and family. He is married with two children and loves to spend time relaxing at the lake.
