August 2019 Employee of the Month!
Ashton has been a part of the nursing staff at Herington Hospital for a little over a year. She is originally from Lincoln, Ks and moved to the Milford Lake area 3 years ago. She has been a nurse for almost 10 years, and currently works PRN at the hospital here as well as at Clay County Medical Center in Clay Center, Ks.
Ashton says, “I love spending time with my family – Dustin & Emily. Dustin is a dentist in Clay Center, and Emily will start 6th grade in Wakefield this year and I’m sure will be keeping us very busy with school and sports! We love going fishing, cheering for the Wildcats, spending time outside, and playing with our three fur babies.”
Ashton says, “Coming from a small community and working at their critical access hospital makes Herington Hospital remind me of home. I have been very fortunate to work with the wonderful staff here, take care of great patients, see some of the exciting changes within the facility, and learn more about the Herington community. I’m very grateful for the experiences that the hospital has provided me, and am looking forward to continuing to grow as a part of the amazing nursing staff at the facility.”
Quote from a fellow staff member: “Ashton excels in compassionate patient care as well as having a positive attitude. She is always willing to help in any ways she can and always greets you with a smile.”
Congratulations Ashton and thank you for providing great care to our patients and community!
