We are excited to welcome Ginger Carmichael as our new Oncology Services Manager. Ginger comes to us with an extensive oncology background. She has been an Oncology Certified RN for over 10 years. Prior to that she worked as an Intensive Care Unit nurse in a level 1-trauma center. She has a Master’s degree in Nursing, in addition to degrees in Biology and Chemistry. She is also about to complete the requirements for a Nurse Practitioner in Oncology. Ginger views this as another method of enhancing her understanding and ability to educate not only our patients, but also our other clinical staff. She has mentored many nurses over the years in the field of Oncology and has served as an Oncology Consultant with a Nurse Advisory Board in Washington D.C. She has also served as a National Exam Question Writer for the Oncology Nursing Society.
Her goal is to see that all of our patients receive the best care possible from everyone they come in contact with while using our services. Ginger has also participated in the opening of four Oncology Infusion centers from the ground up, and will use this experience to help expand our program at Platte Valley. Her goal is to develop a program that would allow patients to come to Platte Valley and receive all the services they need in one location so that travel to multiple medical facilities for different treatments becomes unnecessary.
Please join us in warmly welcoming Ginger Carmichael to Platte Valley Medical Center.
