Beth Timberlake Promoted to Chief Nursing Officer of Piedmont Newton Hospital

Covington, Ga. (July 7, 2022) – Piedmont Newton Hospital has announced Beth Timberlake, MHA, BSN as its new chief nursing officer (CNO). Timberlake joined Piedmont in March 2019, and she served most recently as the director of Women’s and Surgical Services at Piedmont Newton.

“While Beth has only been at Piedmont Newton a few years, they were consequential years and she played an essential role in getting the hospital through the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said David Kent, CEO of Piedmont Newton. “I look forward to what she will accomplish as part of our administration.”

Timberlake has 14 years of nursing leadership experience. She started her nursing career in the pediatric Hematology/Oncology area at Stony Brook University Medical Center in New York. She then moved to the Atlanta area to work at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta caring for pediatric patients with cystic fibrosis and gastroenterological issues. Most recently before joining Piedmont, Timberlake served as the clinical manager of the NICU at Gwinnett Medical Center.

“Our nurses at Piedmont Newton are some of the most skilled and caring I’ve had the privilege to work with in my career,” Timberlake said. “I am excited for the opportunity to be their mentor and advocate in this position so they can continue to do the best job possible for our patients.”

Among her many accomplishments at Piedmont Newton, Timberlake has been instrumental to on-boarding new service lines (e.g., Gastroenterology), opening the outpatient Endoscopy Unit and, most recently, introducing the da Vinci XI Robotic program.

Timberlake earned her Bachelor of Science in nursing from Georgia Southern University and her Master of Science in healthcare administration from Strayer University.  She has been married to her husband, Nate, for 19 years and they have a daughter and two sons.
