Medicine is a demanding team sport. As part of that team, it is important to maintain a positive attitude and support one another when we can. Supporting colleagues so they can spend time with family goes a long way to improving morale and productivity.

I have the privilege of making a difference in our patients’ lives every day as part of a team effort. We deal with life-changing conditions, and I do my best to ease fears and reassure our patients that they are in the best hands. Providing state-of-the-art care is often not enough. Patients want to know that they are cared for personally—and they are—by every team member that has a hand in their care.

It is a unique opportunity to practice academic emergency medicine in a rural environment and to be part of developing a residency program. It’s so rewarding to watch the residents as they grow and learn Emergency Medicine.

I enjoy taking care of patients and listening to their stories—it’s such a privilege. Patients come to the Emergency Department in distress, so I not only provide medical care, I also listen to them in their time of need.

The Emergency Department is expected to step up to the plate in times of great individual, institutional and even regional stress. That can be hard, but my co-workers are amazing, and I am deeply appreciative of their efforts.

“An operation is a stressful time for a patient and their family. As anesthesiologists, we have a very short time in which to establish a rapport, create a climate of trust and help them safely navigate their procedure and recovery. Looking after patients and seeing them do well is a rewarding part of my job.

I do the best I can to support a healthy work-life balance for my colleagues. I understand that employees have different needs and priorities. I strive to create a feeling that we are an inclusive department and that all of our colleagues are valued. I enjoy being a part of a great team of dedicated providers and seeing members of our department be successful.”

My job allows me to bring hope where there is despair, joy where there is sadness and consolation to those who need consoling. Working at D-H offers me the opportunity to practice medicine with a small-practice feel, with the support and resources of a larger system. This allows me to focus more intimately on a patient’s mind, body and soul. In this manner, I not only can take care of a patient’s physical needs, but also help him or her with their mental and spiritual needs as well.

I show appreciation for all the things my coworkers do by providing encouragement, offering thanks and letting them know that I am blessed to be working with them.

Every patient has a story, and I am deeply appreciative of the time I get to spend listening to those stories. Every smile counts, and every visit is a chance to educate. I want my patients to be motivated in improving their health.

I work with an amazing team. Patients want to feel like they are a person, not a condition, and our department works together to make sure that happens. Because of our seamless collaborations, there is genuine familiarity and friendship with our patients.
