WSHEF Fellow Spotlight

Kim Williams, Chief Executive Officer, Providence Health and Services-- Northwest Washington

Kim Williams MS, RN, FACHE, is from Camano Island, where her healthcare journey began during her senior year at Snohomish High School. While still in high school, she began taking classes at Everett Community College (ECC) in 1974. In 1976, she graduated with her associate degree in nursing. Following graduation, Kim took her first nursing position as a staff nurse in Everett. Shortly after her nursing career started, Kim moved to Bellingham (a half an hour south of the Canadian border) and began her 25 years at St. Joseph’s Medical Center.

Kim says her path to leadership “wasn’t intentional,” but originated in her being open and “willing to try new things.” Kim’s enthusiasm for embracing new opportunities was unmistakable during her time at St. Joseph’s, where she worked directly with or was associated with virtually every clinical department in the hospital. The various nursing roles Kim held at St. Joseph were the genesis of her interest in healthcare leadership. Guided by mentorship, Kim returned to school with her sights set on a Masters of Nursing  degree, which she earned in 2000. After earning her MSN, Kim returned to Providence, where she had many leadership roles including: Manager, Director, Chief Nursing Officer and Chief Operating Officer. Through Kim’s many leadership positions and her years of experience, she now advises aspiring healthcare leaders to not “underestimate the learning that can happen in any leadership position” and that “taking a step backwards can be the right move.”

Kim currently serves as the Chief Executive Officer for Providence Health and Services, Northwest Washington. As CEO she oversees operations of a 530-bed medical center with two locations and the Providence Medical Group which has multiple locations throughout Snohomish County. She also serves on various boards including North Sound Accountable Community of Health, Stanwood-Camano YMCA Advisory Board, Economic Alliance of Snohomish County, and United Way of Snohomish County. She is also an Executive Board member of the Regional Trade & Economic Development Alliance.
