The faces of ECHN

Our employees come from all walks of life but what connects everyone is a sense of pride for helping others, and the place they get to do what they love everyday.

Every nursing job is challenging, and requires hard work and dedication, no matter what field of nursing you choose. Working as a hospice nurse has given me the opportunity to make a profound difference in patients and families lives, that in itself brings me so much satisfaction. ECHN has afforded me the support, flexibility, and tools to ensure I can use my skills, know-how and compassion to my fullest to be the best nurse I can be!

Registered Nurse Case Manager
My time with ECHN began as a graduate intern. Since then, I progressed from a part-time unlicensed employee to the full-time licensed employee that I am now. My most significant career achievements have been obtained during my time here and my favorite project is working on a trauma presentation amongst first responders. This is particularly interesting to me due to my past experience working as a first responder in various capacities and my undergraduate education in Criminology.

Clinician III/Adult Ambulatory Behavioral Health
Having been promoted to Chemistry Supervisor has contributed to my growth here at ECHN. My staff motivates me and I have the best manager/assistant director. Working at the hospital is great because of how welcome everyone makes me feel, and managers and executive management take the time to recognize hard work. I love waking up and coming to work every day; it feels like family here. When I’m not working, you can find me in the kitchen. I love cooking and baking and I always bake for my co-workers.
