Reil Honored in Statewide Health Care Employee Recognition Program
“I work in the Medicare billing department for Ministry Sacred Heart and Saint Mary’s Hospitals. I transferred into this position almost a year ago and wasn’t sure how it would go. I have never been in the billing field until now,” shares Jenna Reil, billing department at Ministry in Rhinelander. “When I first started I thought there was no way that I would understand my job and felt very frustrated with myself. But with the amazing help of my coworkers I have been able to accomplish more then I thought I would have.
Reil continues “Working with my coworkers reminds me again why I am so lucky to be working for Ministry Health Care and why I would like to stay within Ministry for the rest of my career.”
The program, sponsored by the Wisconsin Hospital Association (WHA), is designed to celebrate the health care workforce and recognize the outstanding contributions they make to the health of their communities, according to WHA President Steve Brenton.
“The individuals staffing our hospitals are among Wisconsin’s most dedicated and valuable employees. It takes special people to care for others and our communities are richer, safer and healthier places to live because of these professionals,” Brenton said. “Whether they are on the front lines, or supporting those who deliver patient care, every health care employee helps improve the health status in the community where they live and work."
Employees were asked to describe what led them to choose an occupation in health care. Hundreds of health care employees submitted essays.
