Dr. Shanna Botos
John Carroll University announces that Medical Mutual, the oldest and one of the largest health insurance companies based in Ohio, has made a significant investment in the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program.
A portion of the gift will support the Medical Mutual Assistant Professor in the Nursing faculty role. Shanna Botos, DNP, a JCU graduate from the class of 2000, has been named to this position. Dr. Botos joins former University Hospitals executive, Melissa Cole, DNP, JCU’s inaugural Director of Nursing and Strategic Healthcare Initiatives, on the nursing faculty.
“We are grateful to Medical Mutual for this investment in our growing portfolio of academic healthcare programs at John Carroll,” said Alan R. Miciak, president of John Carroll University. “John Carroll University nurses will receive well-rounded academic preparation and rigorous skills training in the Jesuit tradition with a focus on care for the whole person – mind, body, and spirit. Partners like Medical Mutual make it possible for us to accelerate our BSN program and our growth toward a College of Health.”
“As a health insurer, Medical Mutual intentionally partners with a strong network of community changemakers, such as John Carroll University, to improve the health and well-being of all Ohioans,” said Andrea Hogben, executive vice president at Medical Mutual. “Part of this improvement is helping to expand the pipeline of nursing professionals to meet the growing needs of health systems over the coming years. We congratulate Dr. Botos on her appointment and John Carroll University for creating a pathway for a new generation of healthcare heroes.”
