Karl Hess, new Risk Management Director at SMSH

PURVIS, Miss. (January 28, 2014) -- Karl Hess, RN, completed the Mississippi Personnel Board’s Basic Supervisory Course on January 27.​

The Basic Supervisory Course (BSC) is a training course designed to provide information and skill development to supervisors on the fundamentals of supervising people and programs in government. Planned to meet the needs of new supervisors, supervisors new to government, and experienced supervisors who have not yet had the opportunity to take advantage of this type of course, the program presents basic management theory, emphasizing practical application of these principles in public sector environments. BSC provides an orientation to managing in government through a broad array of lecture, group activities, and individual and small-group interactions.

Hess returned to SMSH as the Director of Risk Management and Security on September 16, 2013. He originally came to SMSH as an RN in May 2006. He left SMSH in October 2012 and went to work on the inpatient psychiatric unit at the Veterans Administration in Biloxi for a brief period.

Hess holds a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Mississippi State University and an Associates degree in Nursing from Pearl River Community College.

He is a resident of Pearl River County and a member of St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church. In his spare time, Hess enjoys fishing, following favorite sports teams, and spending time with family and friends.
