Talent Director

DeAnne McAbee is Talent Director at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) in Tulsa. Ms. McAbee oversees the Talent function for the Tulsa hospital, focusing on Stakeholder engagement and culture, strategy, rewards and recognition programs, performance management, employee relations, and Stakeholder training and development.

Ms. McAbee joined CTCA® in September 2005 as the first recruiter for our Tulsa hospital. She quickly took on more responsibility as Talent Manager and, eventually, as Talent Director. Prior to joining CTCA, Ms. McAbee worked as a nurse recruiter for St. Francis Health System, and in employee relations at Oklahoma State University Medical Center (formerly Tulsa Regional Medical Center). She holds her Professional in Human Resources (PHR) and Certified Health Care Recruiter (CHCR) designations.

Bringing more than 25 years of human resources experience, Ms. McAbee is passionate about Stakeholder growth and development, and placing the right person in the right position at the right time. She also is passionate about training leaders to be their best, which is why she piloted the first virtual Leadership Excellence and Advancement Program (LEAP) for the CTCA enterprise. Also, under Ms. McAbee's leadership, the Talent team expanded the Stakeholder recognition program, creating a new, successful method for patients to recognize Stakeholders and increasing “Stakeholder 2 Stakeholder” nominations by 46 percent in one year.

Ms. McAbee is a member of the Society of Human Resource Management and the National Association of Healthcare Recruiters. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time at Grand Lake in Oklahoma, as well as with her family, including two granddaughters, in Augusta, Georgia.
