Girard Medical Center is pleased to welcome Hannah Herrstrom RN BSN as our new Nursing Team Leader!
Hannah was born and raised in Tonganoxie, Kansas. She received her Associates Degree in Nursing from Kansas City Kansas Community College, and later her BSN from the University Of Missouri-Kansas City, in 2018.
Following graduation she went to work at Kansas Rehab Hospital in Acute Rehab, first as a Floor Nurse, then as a Charge Nurse for two years, then as a Nurse Manager fo...r 3 years. She really enjoyed her time there and was able to hone her skills in time management and patient care.
Hannah said the most influential people in her successful career has been her parents. “They were and continue to be extremely supportive”, says Hannah. “They gave me so many opportunities to succeed and I can’t thank them enough.”
Hannah has lived in Girard since October and commented how friendly and welcoming everyone has been. “Everyone waves at everyone – I just love that,” she says. She also raved about the staff and volunteers of Girard Medical Center. “Everyone has been so fantastic from the first time I walked in the door for my interview,” Hannah admired. “The volunteers are wonderful and the staff have been so friendly and patient with me!"
The feeling has been mutual! “Hannah has a passion for patient care and has brought a wealth of experience and knowledge with her,” says Joyce Geier, Director of Nursing. “She is an excellent addition to our staff, and we look forward to working with her and getting to know her.”
When she is not caring for patients, Hannah enjoys her favorite hobby… traveling! “I made a goal several years ago to travel to a new country at least once a year,” she says. “This year I plan on exploring Scotland, Ireland and Iceland.”
GMC is happy to have Hannah as part of the team!
