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.

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.
