Shoua is a true team player

September 14th, 2022 // Kudos

Delivering high quality care for our patients is a team effort. Many of our programs, like Structural Heart, utilize the skills of our Imaging colleagues to monitor patients and ensure their procedures are successful. Shoua Her, CT Tech, works closely with the Structural Heart program to provide patients and their providers with accurate imaging. “Shoua consistently embraces service excellence at the highest level,” a colleague says. “She is THE backbone of our program and the whole team is so grateful for her support.” Thanks, Shoua, for using your skills to make our team – and the care we provide – even better!

When working with patient data, it’s important to double and triple check everything to ensure that patients receive the right care, and their payments are processed correctly. Patrick Thobe, Saint Agnes Medical Foundation EMR Specialist, has the right eye for patient data. On a daily basis, he works with dozens of reports that directly impact patient care. Thanks to his thorough review, Patrick has helped stop errors on more than one occasion. Thank you, Patrick, for your attention to detail and for keeping all of us on track!

Way to go, Jared!

August 17th, 2022 // Kudos

Needing emergency care can be a scary experience. That’s why Patient Access Representative Jared Riordan works to make patients feel comfortable during their registration process. Recently, he helped a patient with a fear of hospitals feel at ease by speaking in a comforting and friendly tone during check-in. He even got her to laugh! He also made sure that the patient’s family had contact information, which helped to alleviate stress for the patient and her family. We’re so proud of Jared for taking extra time out of his day to ensure that our patients and their family members feel confident in their care.

Nurse Kim leads by example

July 27th, 2022 // Kudos

It can be intimidating to be a new nurse, but with someone like Kim Chapman, RN, (5M/6N Surgical) showing you the ropes, there’s a lot less to worry about. When Kim trains new nurses, she takes the time to explain procedures and treatments as she performs them for her patients. This helps new nurses gain confidence and a better understanding of how to deliver great patient care. Thank you, Kim, for your leadership, kindness and healing heart!
