Meet Yvonne! Yvonne is a registered nurse and works in our outpatient surgery center. From spine injections to total joint replacement, Yvonne assists with all aspects of patient care in our our outpatient surgery center.
She chose a career in the medical field because of her desire to help people, and explains, “I truly love helping people feel better, especially if they are hurting and in pain.” Another reason the medical field was a good fit for her is her life long interest in human sciences, “God created the human body, and to me, it is such a miracle.”
Her favorite part about working in an outpatient surgery center is, “the ability our patients have to be in the comfort of their home, surrounded by loved ones, after a procedure or surgery.” She also enjoys helping care for patients and families before, during, and after a surgery…”I try to place myself in their position and think, ‘what if they were my family.” She focuses on explaining procedures and talking to patients during their procedures to help keep them calm and relaxed. ‘
When Yvonne isn’t working, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Stephen, and their Mini Schnauzers, Dexter and Benz. She’s a Nascar fan and cheers on Denny Hamlin.
Fun fact alert: Yvonne is a card maker! She loves crafting and creating beautiful birthday, holiday, of “just because” cards to brighten days of her friends and family!
Happy 7th work anniversary, Yvonne! Thank you for everything you do for our patients.
