DeAnna Looper, RN, CHPN, CHPCA, has been named chief compliance officer, and Danny Cox, BSN, has been appointed senior vice president of clinical operations for Tulsa, OK-based Carrefour Associates, the management firm for Crossroads Hospice & Palliative Care.

Looper brings more than 40 years’ experience in healthcare, education and administration to her newly created position. As chief compliance officer, she will oversee all clinical, legal and regulatory compliance operations across 11 Crossroads sites in seven states.

Looper joined Crossroads at its founding in 1995 as a nurse and advanced through several operational roles. She most recently was senior vice president of clinical operations.

A graduate of Tulsa Junior College, now Tulsa Community College, with an associate’s degree in nursing, Looper continued her education attending Kaplan University and University of Oklahoma. She earned certifications as a hospice and palliative care nurse, hospice and palliative care administrator, legal nurse consultant, grief recovery specialist, Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association-approved educator and end-of-life care trainer. She is a member of the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association, Health Care Compliance Association and the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics.

Cox advances to the position of senior vice president of clinical operations from his previous role as a clinical consultant for Carrefour, a role he had held since 2014. As a clinical consultant, he led the implementation of a new hospice-specific electronic medical record platform across all 11 Crossroads sites.

In his new role, Cox will be responsible for leading the enterprise-wide integration of all clinical operations for Crossroads.

Cox joined Crossroads in 2011 as a clinical director at its Cincinnati location. He earned his nursing degrees from the University of Cincinnati, where he also was an adjunct clinical instructor in nursing before joining Crossroads.
