Capital Region Medical Group is pleased to welcome the new Vice President of Patient Care Services, Janet Pestle, DNP.

Having received her Doctor of Nursing with an emphasis on executive leadership and Master of Science in nursing, Janet brings vast experience to CRMC. She is coming to us from Allina Health United Hospital in St. Paul, MN where she served as VP of patient care and CNO from July 2018 to 2021. Prior to that she served as the VP of nursing and CNO for SSM Health St. Joseph’s Hospital Lake St. Louis for eight years. Janet has worked in health care for more than 30 years.

Janet began her role on September 7, 2021 following the retirement of Glenda Dahlstrom, former VP of nursing here at CRMC. Glenda guided our patient care teams and helped advance the profession of nursing across our community with her wealth of knowledge and passion for health care. We can’t thank Glenda enough for her dedicated leadership and we wish her well in her retirement.
