Becky Simmons

Becky Simmons, RN, BSN, has joined Security Health Plan’s quality department as a star program manager, Security Health announced this week.

Simmons will implement and monitor strategies to achieve the plan’s goal of achieving a 5-star quality rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Each year, Medicare evaluates plans on a 5-star rating system that compares plans on quality and performance.

“Becky has a proven track record of leadership in quality assurance, which will strengthen our star rating efforts,” said Security Health Plan’s Acting Director of Quality, Lynne Paller. “Our goal is to provide excellent care and support to our Medicare Advantage members, and in turn to achieve the highest rating of 5 stars.”

Simmons earned an associate’s degree in nursing from Suomi College (now Finlandia University), Hancock, Michigan, and received her bachelor’s degree in nursing from Capella University in Minneapolis. She joined Marshfield Clinic Health System in Rice Lake in September 2017 and has worked within the health system as an Oncology Research Nurse, RN System Trainer, and Associate Director of the Care Innovation Team. She has also completed several training programs in leadership, project management and process improvement.
