WESTMINSTER — Kimberly Cowan, a Northfield resident, has joined Recovery Centers of America (RCA), a neighborhood-based addiction treatment provider, as its director of nursing for its Westminster location.

Cowan will be responsible for directing, planning and coordinating the activities of all nursing personnel on staff to ensure regulatory compliance and high quality clinical care.

“We’re excited to have Kimberly leading our nursing and medical teams,” said Recovery Centers of America-Westminster CEO Michael Stuart. “Her extensive background directing and implementing new processes and procedures for patient care strengthens our team and enhances our ability to provide the necessary medical services for our patients.”
