 Alexis Logue, BSN, RN - Labor and Delivery

“I shudder to think what would have happened had Alexis not been there. She stayed with me and one of our twins while my husband went to the NICU with our other boy. I was so confused and scared from the medication I was on and her presence and help made all the difference. I’m so grateful to her.”


Amanda Vongroven, BSN, RN – NICU

She was phenomenal in addressing my fears of leaving my baby, reassured me she would snuggle him, have cameras on. I  felt so comfortable leaving him, I never once felt the need to check in by phone. This may seem so minor but made a huge impact on us. Amanda also made a point to visit on other shifts too! So much appreciated.


Sarah Wendorff,  RN - Interventional Radiology

"Sarah works very hard and cared for not only the patient but myself (his wife). She made you feel like you were her only patient and had all the time you needed. As your signage says, she cared for the mind, body, and spirit. We are very grateful for her kindness and would like to see her recognized for a job well done."
