Iredell Health System welcomes Caroline Land as the new program director of the Iredell Wound Care & Hyperbaric Center.
Land will be responsible for achieving clinical, operational, and financial results at the center.
An experienced healthcare industry leader, Land has worked for 18 years in cardiology, surgery, and family practice offices. She worked as a practice coordinator with Blue Ridge Surgery, as a practice lead with the Appalachian Regional Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Center, and as a medical assistant/practice coordinator with Sanger Heart & Vascular Institute. She also worked as a national sales manager with Sattler Corp. and as a business development specialist with Foothills Radio Group. Land holds an associate degree in medical assisting from Wilkes Community College and a bachelor’s degree in healthcare management from Gardner-Webb University.
Land’s passion for healthcare began as a child while following her grandfather around his medical practice.
“I watched him provide healthcare to others, and that is when the light went on that I wanted to help improve the processes of healthcare,” Land said.
Land teaches CPR and first aid through the American Heart Association for the Caldwell County Smart Start program. She completed medical missionary work in Uganda and served as an advocate for Caldwell Habitat of Humanity ReStore. She volunteers with the Helping Hands Clinic and in youth classes with First Baptist Church of Lenoir.
“Giving back to those less fortunate brings me joy, compassion, and empathy for others,” Land said. “I believe this brings us together as a community and helps keep organizations working together as a team.”
Land enjoys spending time with her family, watching suspense movies, traveling, and watching her three kids play sports.
