Medical City McKinney has announced five nurses that received recognition as one of DFW’s “The Great 100 Nurses.” These nurses include Anna resident Mike Mixson, manager of trauma services, as well as Ann Dutze, emergency services clinical supervisor; Gary Huey, Texas Two Step coordinator; Mark Lisonbee; manager of med/surg; and Cassidi Roberts, chief nursing officer.


“The Great 100 Nurses” recognizes RNs for excellence in the art and science of nursing. Nurses were nominated by peers and selected because they are role models, leaders, community servants, compassionate caregivers and significant contributors of the nursing profession, a press release said. Honorees come from all practice areas in nursing, including acute care, sub-acute care, school nursing, nurse leaders, academics and more.


“Medical City McKinney has many outstanding nurses, and I am proud to see five of our nurse leaders selected for this prestigious honor,” Ernest C. Lynch, III, FACHE, chief executive officer of Medical City McKinney, said in a press release. “The Great 100 Nurses recognizes each of them for their individual contributions to the nursing field.”


Mixson leads Medical City McKinney’s stroke and trauma programs, and spends hours educating nurses, physicians and EMS providers on protocols and quality measures. He also educates local high school students on effects of drinking and driving through the Shattered Dreams program. He is currently pursuing a master’s degree in nursing, focusing on trauma, emergency services and hospital administration. Outside of work, Mixson serves as a volunteer firefighter, participates in medical mission trips and serves as an Anna Chamber of Commerce board member.


“As a fourth generation nurse, being selected as a DFW Great 100 Nurse is a tremendous honor that I am truly grateful,” Mixson said.
