I hope she realizes the importance of her role and how she does make a difference every day

Jim McKernan, Employee

Today we recognize Sandra Kelly NP . . . for respecting all people and building trusting partnerships.

Sandy is part of our advanced illness management team, working with patients and families to assure timely, informed decisions at end-of-life.  Recently, I received a note expressing appreciation for the commitment and compassion Sandy brought to a mother and daughter.  The note highlighted Sandy’s efforts to support the aging mother through informed, private, end of life decisions.  At the same time, Sandy was providing support to the daughter; the note was filled with words like caring, supportive, compassionate, valuable, good listener.  It ended with these words:  “I hope she realizes the importance of her role and how she does make a difference every day!”

Thank you to Sandra Kelly for her creative and compassionate care to our patients and families.
