Nursing is one of the fine arts; I had almost said ‘the finest of fine arts.’– Florence Nightingale
No matter how you choose to celebrate International Nurses Day, taking time to recognize your nursing staff or co-workers can make a huge difference. At National Medical, we’re proud to honor our healthcare professionals.
Meet Marta, who joined National Medical 3 years ago. She’s been a nurse for 49 years. She started her career as a Registered Nurse in the operating room as an Open-Heart Surgical Nurse, then moved into directing the management of surgical operations as well as sales, medical consulting, and group purchasing for major medical industries. Marta is our Senior Manager of Training and Education. She helps our growing team keep up with industry trends by providing support with the Hospitals Without Walls Program, as well as coding, medical industry updates, and COVID-19 updates. In her free time, Marta likes to volunteer with Different Dynamics, which supports people with disabilities through music. She also likes to travel and spend time with family and friends.
Meet Virginia, who joined National Medical’s coding department 10 years ago to learn the business side of medicine. She’s been a nurse for 11 years, starting out in skilled nursing facilities, and she’s now one of our top gastroenterology coders. She also codes for prestigious multi-specialty hospital systems and is one of our go-to Epic coders. Virginia has five kids and enjoys planting flowers, cooking, and watching her kids’ concerts and sports events.
Meet Kylie, who’s been with National Medical for 5 years. She’s our Senior Vice President of Clinical and Regulatory Affairs – and she’s also a nurse of 15 years.
