“I enjoy getting to know the students. Each class has its own personality, and each student learns differently. I love the moment when the skills we’ve been working on for weeks finally connect. From day one, we instill in our students the value of integrity. These students have a drive to enrich their lives, and they are my motivation to come to work.

When you surround yourself with good people who support your vision, you can’t help but be your best. If I’m my best, that reflects on the students and they will work hard. It’s a symbiotic relationship.”

“I wanted to work in an environment that focuses on patient-centered care. We do everything we can to ensure our patients have what they need to make that happen. The staff at the D-H Pharmacies work hard to ensure prescriptions are ready on time and go out of their way to provide prescriptions at the lowest possible cost.

A lot of the joy in my work comes from the time spent with my coworkers, helping them achieve success in the retail pharmacy space. I have a positive, ‘can do’ attitude and enjoy helping the colleagues in my department achieve their goals.”

Seeing smiles, making other people happy and wearing fun holiday costumes brings joy to my work. I make a difference in our patients’ lives by listening to them, providing encouragement, making them smile and providing a hug when they need one. The same goes for my coworkers. I enjoy making them laugh and smile. I also believe in teamwork and helping others with their work.

Lisa Cudhea

Group Therapist, Inpatient Psychiatry

Dartmouth-Hitchcock, Lebanon

Each day I come to work is different based on the patient population, and I like that. No day is ever the same. I help patients see their strengths outside of their mental health issues. I love working with them and seeing the transformation they make with the help of a team.

We have a wonderful staff, and the atmosphere on the unit is calm and welcoming. My colleagues know they can count on me to be flexible, but they also know I am consistent in the work I do. They know that I am honest and not afraid to speak up when I have a question or concern about treatment, care or our unit.

Christine Busby

Sr. Manager, Business Operations, Clinical Trials Office

Dartmouth-Hitchcock, Lebanon

When we assist clinical study teams with organizing their trials, we help bring patients one step closer to improvements and cures. Whether it’s helping to make new medications available or medical devices accessible, it feels good to be part of such important endeavors.

I like to start each day by saying ‘good morning’ to each of my team members. I ask them about their lives, their families and take the time to connect with them. We all are so busy that it’s important to take a moment to appreciate each other. My greatest joy at work is helping colleagues. I like to help them find solutions to challenging issues and to empower them by making them part of the resolution.

HR Services Center Representative, Benefits Administration

Dartmouth-Hitchcock, Lebanon

I help employees and their families make informed decisions concerning their benefits. I always consider, ‘What if I was seeking assistance; what would I need to know to make an informed decision?’ I support the employees who support the patients. By helping to minimize an employee’s concerns about their benefits, they can focus on caring for our patients. It has always been my goal to provide excellence in customer service, and I strive to be both a learner and a teacher in my role. My colleagues and I support each other to deliver exceptional customer service to all D-H employees and their families.

Senior Clinical Secretary, General Ambulatory Services

Dartmouth-Hitchcock, Lebanon

“I feel joy knowing that I can help patients find convenient appointments—thoughtfully coordinating all their care, especially when they travel long distances. I’ve enjoyed meeting patients and making lasting friendships. I met an elderly couple who became like grandparents to me. They often took me to lunch when they traveled up from Massachusetts for their appointments. They even bought me a wedding gift and knitted baby clothes when my son was born.

I’ve worked here since 1985, and one of my biggest assets is the knowledge I have to pass along, especially when training employees, as I did at the Connection Center. I’m always willing to go the extra mile when helping people.”

It’s important to make sure others feel appreciated.

Certified Ophthalmic Assistant, Ophthalmology

“Being an Ophthalmology technician is rewarding in many ways. We do far more than prescribing glasses to patients. We play a role in managing systemic illnesses like diabetes or multiple sclerosis. It’s awesome to think someone might read their favorite book again or see a loved one. Being a part of that is gratifying.

The work I do wouldn’t be possible without my colleagues. It’s important to make sure they feel appreciated. I created the ‘High Council of Employee Merriment’ which is a fun group where we create theme days like ‘Breakfast of Champions’ or ‘Flannel Friday’ to boost morale. The more you’re appreciated, the better work you do. The better work you do, the better care our patients receive.”
