We asked our teammates to share what inspired them to pursue their careers, and why they chose to become part of the Ely-Bloomenson Community Hospital family. Their reasons may be unique, but they share a common commitment to community, creating personal connections and a desire to provide an expert patient experience to everyone who trusts EBCH for care.

CHEMOTHERAPY REGISTERED NURSE
Motivated by her father’s cancer diagnosis, chemotherapy registered nurse and Epic-credentialed trainer, Heidi, is a natural nurturer who provides compassionate care to patients when they most need help. Her reason for choosing EBCH is simple; it’s all about teamwork. “Ely-Bloomenson Community Hospital has a great staff,” Heidi shared. She credits the many doctors, nurses, techs and administrators who share her commitment to helping, and inspire her to be her very best every day. For every patient and every family member.
Registered nurse Cortney credits her love for people—and passion to help patients live their healthiest lives—for choosing her career in case management and utilization review. Helping patients follow care plans, Cortney’s impact on patients’ health and healing is, quite often, life-changing. “Helping others be their best, healthiest versions of themselves (provides) so much gratification,” she shared. “It fills my cup.” Making it her priority to be the best every day. Creating customized care to best help every patient.
Chris is a third generation pharmacist who chose EBCH to help improve people’s health—and lives. His approach to patient care is simple, but invaluable. “I take the time to understand and empathize with each patient, and make sure they get the best, most timely, and most financially responsible care possible,” he said. Chris is proud of the EBCH team, and the shared high standards of patient care. “I can confidently say that when patients come to EBCH, everyone cares about them. From the cleaning staff, to the executive team, everyone tries their hardest to give the best care possible to every single person.” Every teammate. Every relationship.
