LUMBERTON — Deborah Nellis has been named director of maternal/child health services for Southeastern Health.
She is responsible for Southeastern Regional Medical Center’s obstetrics and gynecology, labor and delivery, and postpartum mother/baby units, and the Level II neonatal intensive care unit.
Nellis comes to Lumberton from McKinney, Texas, but she spent most of her nursing career in Pittsburgh, where she was a nurse for more than three decades. She received her bachelor’s degree in Nursing from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, her master’s degree in Nursing from the University of Pittsburgh, and her doctorate in Nursing from Robert Morris University in Moon Township, Pa.
“I came here because I was so impressed with everybody I met and interviewed with,” she said. “I knew this was going to be a good fit. I like the community, and I like that it’s a smaller, more personable community where people can get to know one another.”
Nellis lives in Lumberton with her husband, James.
