It was an honor and a pleasure to work at King's Daughters Medical Center.
Quality Coordinator (Former Employee) – Ashland, KY – April 17, 2015
I worked at KDMC for nearly 40 years, in positions that were increasingly complex and rewarding. The people I worked with were professional, genuine, caring, and gifted individuals. I learned that honesty is essential in all relationships; that mutual trust allows for innovation. I was blessed with a boss who did the right thing,every time, no matter what, according to our shared priorities. We were nurses first and out patients were our sacred trust. As we grew and developed into more administrative positions, the patient-centeredness belief is what kept us on track. The hardest job I did there was starting the heart and vascular research program. I had never worked in a Cath Lab, and never done research. But we achieved international status as the 30th highest enrollers in the world for the ACUITY trial. Everything I did at KDMC was rewarding in some way. Direct patient care was the most valuable thing I think I did. Managing drug and device research projects was rewarding when I could contact patients during annual follow up and tell them that by participating in our research projects, they had given us data we could use to improve care for others.
