Since being at WDH I have vastly built on my skill set as a Case Manager thanks to the expertise of the physician advisors, my manager and team of seasoned, expert Case Managers. WDH offers, encourages and supports professional growth with a strong team atmosphere. I have been encouraged to become involved in committees that promote positive change within my team.

I love my job and the management is by far the best I have ever experienced. Anyone thinking of applying to WDH should definitely do it!"

Ten years later, I am still here and loving it every day. Not only do I love my coworkers, who have become my close friends, but I love the diversity of my job. Often times I feel people overlook what we do, but not only do we provide compassion and skill in our job to the patients, but we also get to see behind the scenes; working closely with the medical staff ensuring patients are getting accurate results. I feel rewarded at the end of everyday knowing that I have played a role in helping the patients get the proper treatment they need."
