At Gateway Hancock Health I help patients…

SH: By providing excellent patient care and ensuring that they get quality imaging. I enjoy meeting new people and making their experience the best it can be.

BA: By performing MRI scans to aid in their diagnoses. I help out coworkers by trying to have equipment ready to go each morning. 

My favorite Hancock Health project/event that I’ve been a part of is: 

SH: The Teddy Bear Clinic. It is fun to show children that they don’t need to be afraid when getting an X-ray. I also love their smiles and giggles when they see the X-ray of their stuffed animals!  
CS: The Gateway Hancock Health project. It’s been phenomenal being a part of such a great organization, and bringing high quality/low cost healthcare to the East Central Indiana area. 
BA: Being a part of the COVID Clinic was a unique experience. At that time, so much was unknown, and it was all valuable experience.
