CHI Grimes St. Joseph Hospital has a new director. She’s Erin Marietta, and she was officially introduced recently at Navasota City Council.
The Louisiana native is also now the Director for St. Jo’s in Madisonville. This follows a year and a half as St Jo’s Director of Communication and Marketing, after a seven year stint as a Naval Communications and Operations Specialist.
When she transitioned out of her Service, Marietta tells Navasota News she moved back to Louisiana and worked for the state and the university system and eventually as the chief operations officer for a technology-based economic development system that worked in connection with academic research and government agencies.
The mother of two says she married an Aggie, which is what brought the Marietta family to South College Station.
Marietta says when she and her husband moved here, she kept her job for awhile, still running my organization remotely, but when the position in communications opened at St. Jo’s, I jumped at because I really wanted to get my foot in the door.
Marietta says she understands the growth that the County of Grimes has just begun to experience, and feels that St. Jo’s is equal to the task.
With everything from cardiac rehabilitation to physical therapy services to skilled nursing as well as the E.R., Marietta thinks St. Jo is well-positioned to do very well and handle the growth of patients as they come this way.
And now that she’s here, Marietta says she wants to shake hands with and hear from as many local folks as she can. You can reach her at 936-870-4511.
