Over 38 years ago, Faye & her husband Larry (married for just a short time) decided they wanted to get the heck out of Ohio. If they had had a covered wagon instead of a car (hopefully it wasn’t that long ago), they would have put up a sign that said “Colorado or Bust.” Upon arrival, Faye searched the newspaper ads (that’s how it was done 35 years ago) and found a job working at Platte Valley Medical Center in nutritional services, taking room service orders and helping out in the kitchen.
She left us for a few years but just could not stay away. She came back and applied for a position as the PBX operator offering to work evenings, as well as every holiday and weekend. After leaving the interview, the shifts Faye was willing to work suddenly registered with the HR staff. She was chased down in the parking lot and offered the job on the spot.
She worked in that role for about seven years when she noticed that the Business Office could use some help, so she told them about her degree in Accounting and offered her services. She said that may have been her second mistake, after the first one of offering to work every off hour.
After serving as Billing Supervisor for over 20 years, she was the “go to” person all over the hospital. If she promised to do something for you, she did it, even at the risk of staying well into the night to get it completed. It’s for sure many of you have experienced Faye’s helpful & patient service explaining the confusing world of billing. Requirements from insurance are confusing, yet Faye was able to make our patients and our staff understand how it works.
Thank you Faye for all your years of service! We wish you well in this new chapter… this new adventure in your journey.
