Linda Hollen is a pediatric surgery nurse practitioner at Dayton Children's and has worked in the pediatric surgery department for more than a decade.
Linda provides inpatient and outpatient care for pedatric surgery patients and was actively involved in creating the hospital's outpatient burn clinic.
Prior to her role in the surgery department, she spent 18 years working as a registered nurse in Dayton Children's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
I began my career with Dayton Children’s in the NICU where I regularly interacted with the pediatric surgeons and their patients. Many years later I was presented with the opportunity to join the surgeons as their first ever nurse practitioner. I eagerly accepted the challenge. Over time the NP role has evolved to better serve our surgical patients and families.
the organization’s mission is to improve the health status of all children and be the first choice for children’s health. Excellent pediatric care is at the center of all that is done at Dayton Children’s.
we are a big enough facility to offer a vast number of pediatric specialty services. However, we are not so big that we lose sight of the individual patient and the patient’s family.
