“When I started here at PVMC, one of my new co-workers took me from the MOB to the Bistro and said hello to almost everyone we passed. She knew their names and it didn’t seem to matter if they were an employee or a patient. I remember thinking how amazing it was that she was so familiar with everyone. Five years later, I find myself saying hello to almost as many people, and knowing most of their names. It reminds me of what a wonderful community hospital this is, and what a great place it is to work.”
“Looking back over the last 10 years at our “new” campus, I recognize what a special time it was to be a part of the move. The detailed planning, the excitement in the community as we revealed the new campus at our public Open House prior to the move, packing up our old office and working in the new hospital before the patients were here… but what I remember mostly clearly was the morning our first patients arrived here. I can still feel the anticipation as we watched with the news crews awaiting the ambulance transfers from one campus to the other… now it’s business as usual, but on that day, it felt like we were holding our breath as we prayed we’d prepared everything according to plan and our patients would arrive safely. It was a truly unique time in our history.”
“I’ve only been here for five of these ten years, but one of my favorite memories is from the month or so when we were filming the Patient’s Voice video “Who Inspires You?” It was wonderful to hear my coworkers speak highly of each other’s skills, dedication, and commitment to this hospital. Every time we had to review the video during the editing process, I was surprised to find I was misty-eyed! I also loved getting a glance at other people’s jobs, especially the ones that are very different from mine.
