According to Landspítali, the university hospital, they always try to choose the right person for all hospital jobs. The hospital offers an extensive program of staff training and development opportunities, which include Icelandic lessons for foreigners. So the answer is yes. Eventually she would need to speak Icelandic, but not immediately.
