Daisy Murphy Named New Care Center Administrator
On May 24th the Scotland County Care Centerís Board of Directors announced the selection of Daisy Murphy as the new administrator for the Care Center and Residential Terrace. She was born and raised in Memphis, the daughter of Leslie and Anna Faye Garrison and has one sister, Patty Simerl who still resides here.
Daisy began her career in long-term care at Scotland County Care Center in 1975 and worked up through the ranks starting as a certified nursing assistant then a certified medication technician, an LPN and charge nurse. Since leaving Memphis in 1984, she has held many positions in long-term care for large nursing home corporations serving as activity director, social worker, census development coordinator, administrator and regional director of operations overseeing five nursing homes.
Daisy was educated at Scotland County R-I, Indian Hills Community College and Lindenwood University. She has stated her primary goal for the Care Center will be to ensure that all of the ladies and gentlemen who reside there will be extremely well cared for each and every day and she will also be working toward the financial success of the Care Center.
Mitch Jayne stated he had retired two times already and is looking forward to his third retirement. He expects Daisy to arrive on or before June 18th. The Board had a number of good prospects to choose from, but were unanimous in their selection. Daisy relayed to the members that she wanted to come home and is doing so at considerable financial sacrifice. Mitch further stated that we are lucky to get such a highly qualified person to manage our facility.
The Care Center has over 100 employees and a four million dollar budget making her selection important both to the Care Center and to Scotland County as a whole.
