Iroquois Memorial Hospital would not be successful without the support of our incredible staff. Some members stand out as Superstars!
Each week, we will be featuring a new Superstar staff member to highlight their outstanding commitment and dedication to IMH and the patients we serve.
This week’s featured employee is Nancy Cramer, LPN. Nancy has been a member of the IMH family for 27 years. As a LPN in the Iroquois Resident Home, she works with Residents and helps make sure their individual needs are met. Ironically, when she interviewed for her position, she told Donna Gossett, RN, the Director of Nursing at the time, that she did not want the job. Donna must have seen the potential in Nancy and told her, “You will be here on January 4th”. According to Nancy, she will never forget the day she started, because, lucky for us and the Residents at the Iroquois Resident Home, Donna scared her so much that she showed up for the job, and the rest is history!
Nancy is a local who graduated from Clifton Central. After high school, she attended Kankakee Community College where she completed her LPN. Nancy has three children, including her son who has recently been deployed on the USS Pearl Harbor. When Nancy isn’t caring for Residents, she enjoys spending as much time as possible with her granddaughter.
When we spoke to Nancy about how she felt about her position at IMH she said, “I have always loved geriatric medicine. I love caring for people. Especially interacting with the Residents and their families, getting to know them and hearing their stories.” She, also, requested that everyone, please, keep her deployed son in their prayers.
From all of us at IMH and the Iroquois Resident Home, thank you Nancy for your outstanding service. You are a true Superstar in Healthcare!
