Jean Ten Haken to become Chief Nursing Officer at APD


An experienced nursing and health care leader, Jean Ten Haken, will become the Chief Nursing Officer at Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital.

Ten Haken most recently served as the Chief Operating Officer at the Elliot Health System in Manchester, New Hampshire, where she also served as the Vice President of Patient Care Services and Chief Nursing Officer.

After working throughout the United States in direct nursing care, Ten Haken began her management career at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, where she ultimately became the Director of Intermediate Cardiac Care and Cardiovascular Critical Care Units. Prior to joining the Elliot, Ten Haken was the Vice President of Acute Care Nursing at Concord Hospital.

“Jean brings more than 30 years of nursing and leadership experience to APD. Equally important, she knows the Upper Valley and what our patients expect from their community hospital,” said APD President and CEO Sue Mooney. “I am confident she will advance nursing practice throughout our entire organization.”

A longtime resident of Grantham, New Hampshire, Ten Haken earned her undergraduate degree in nursing from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and her Master of Science degree in nursing from the University of South Alabama.

“I am delighted to join APD,” Ten Haken said. “The hospital’s commitment to the Upper Valley community and to highly personalized patient care mirrors what I value most as a health care leader,” she said.

Ten Haken is expected to begin serving as Chief Nursing Officer at APD in late January 2018.
