The HopeWest office in Delta recently honored three registered nurses, or RNs, who are entering retirement. Representing several years of cumulative nursing experience are RNs Jean Andre, Dave Taylor and Pam McGhee.
“Each of these nurses brought great wisdom and insight to our clinical team,” said Lydia Rhodes, HopeWest clinical team manager. “We will miss them dearly, but we are so happy they will soon be enjoying well-deserved relaxation.”
Andre is a variable RN with 23 years of experience and eight at HopeWest.
The Austin resident’s favorite part about working at HopeWest is: “Teamwork and the patients.” She looks forward to a retirement spent traveling.
Taylor is a primary RN who has worked in nursing for more than 50 years with a decade of his career spent with HopeWest. The Delta resident’s favorite part of working for HopeWest is: “Supporting one another. This team is like no other. They work together so well.”
In retirement, he plans to catch up on lots of “honey-do” projects.
McGhee is a primary RN who served 50 years in the nursing field and has been with HopeWest for five years. Like her companion retirees, she enjoyed working as a team to provide compassion, love, and the best support to patients and families facing difficult experiences.
“Although I will miss my teammates, patients and families greatly, I will not miss the paperwork!” the Crawford resident joked.
In retirement, McGhee looks forward to fishing and hiking, listening to the birds, watching the sunrise over the mountains, working in the garden, and sitting on the porch swing with friends and family.
