Salisbury resident named nurse manager at CMC-Kannapolis

A Salisbury woman has been named nurse manager at Carolinas Medical Center-Kannapolis, the 24-hour freestanding emergency department scheduled to open in January.
Karen Corker, who has worked at Carolinas Medical Center-NorthEast for nearly 17 years, will supervise the staff at CMC-Kannapolis, which is under construction at 2711 Lane St. near Interstate 85 Exit 63. Corker has 13 years experience in the Emergency Care Center at CMC-NorthEast and also worked part time on the CMC-NorthEast Mobile Intensive Care Unit.
She has been certified in emergency nursing for nine years. She also is an adult nurse practitioner, certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners. Corker holds an undergraduate degree in nursing from Winston-Salem State University, and a master’s in nursing from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. A native of Florida, she moved to Salisbury in 1994.
CMC-Kannapolis, part of Carolinas Medical Center-NorthEast, will be one of the region’s first freestanding emergency departments, with physicians who are board certified in emergency medicine. With 26,000 square feet, it will offer 10 treatment rooms and two private observation rooms for monitoring patients who come to the facility.
It also includes a laboratory, advanced diagnostic imaging and electronic communications for patients who need to be admitted to a hospital, so doctors there will have patient data and test results when the patient arrives.
