We may be small… but we’re mighty

“Why I Choose SageWest”
By Cheryl Atman, RN Quality Specialist at SageWest Health Care

I originally joined SageWest back in December of 2005. I first arrived 6 months prior, as a traveling nurse. I quickly fell in love with the slower pace of life and the beauty of creation in this area. I stayed for many of the same reasons, but today I also feel like I’m part of a family at SageWest.

My managers have always been very understanding. They are often willing to work with me to accommodate any special needs I might have. Working in a smaller hospital has its advantages. We all get to know each other well. We’ve built strong working relationships and have great communication. This allows us to do BIG things.

SageWest may be small but we can handle big problems as a team. I always loved my job in the Women’s Health Unit. For many years, I got to help families welcome a new addition. This year, I have switched departments but have found the Quality Department rewarding in its own way.

I get to focus on providing a safe and enjoyable patient experience that meets all the requirements set by outside agencies.

I choose SageWest because…

I believe in the work we are doing at SageWest Health Care and I’m glad to contribute to healthy living in our small community.
