Nicci Urbigkit, Fremont County is my home.
“Why I Choose SageWest”
by Nicci Urbigkit, Director of WorkWise at SageWest Healthcare
I have been working with SageWest since November of 2007. Starting out as an ER admissions clerk on the night shift, made for an exciting, fast-paced introduction to a hospital. Since then, I’ve had many opportunities to learn and grow. Recently, I found my calling as the Patient Safety Officer and the Director of WorkWise.
Throughout my 10+ years of working at SageWest, I’ve learned how unique we are. The relationships that we have with our patients is more personal. Nurses often get involved in many areas of the patient’s care, start to finish. Being a small town, our patients aren’t always strangers. They’re often friends and family, which only drives us to provide a higher level of care.
Many don’t realize this, but at SageWest we grow our own. Our team includes people who are proud to call Fremont County home. People who start their career in healthcare and find a passion, go back for additional training or education and become some of the most talented healthcare professionals serving those who we care for and love.
I witnessed this firsthand when my parents were diagnosed with terminal illnesses. They were treated at SageWest, and it was a very special experience. My parents received the highest level of care and compassion, which I will never forget and I continue to be proud of.
Looking back, I think about how blessed I am to be a part of this organization. I am proud of SageWest and am honored to be able to make a positive impact in other’s lives.
I Choose SageWest because…
Fremont County is my home and I want to make a positive impact.
