What is a WhidbeyHealth Hero?

What is a WhidbeyHealth Hero?

A WhidbeyHealth Hero is someone who helps to shape and define the patient and employee experience at WhidbeyHealth. It's an intentional contributor; an exceptional healthcare professional  – be it in a clinical, support services, or administrative role - dedicated to making sure we deliver exceptional care to every patient.

Each of us may have a different definition of what makes someone a “hero,” but we can agree that it is a person who is admired or idealized for their qualities and achievements.

Starting in March 2020, we've been recognizing a hero every week and without further ado we are excited to introduce and recognize this months WhidbeyHealth Heroes!

Meet the April 2021 WhidbeyHealth HEROES

Amy Billieu

“Amy has been an asset to HIM since her arrival; her knowledge of the clinics, Centricity, and providers has made that position easy to fill as we had someone willing to take over the duties a lot of us found challenging (and she does it with a smile no less)! We have registrars and nurses from other clinics who love to talk to her. Amy also has a good rapport with our more frequent record requesters and patients: she completes requests so quickly and efficiently that there is little room for error.”

APRIL HERO 2

“Tim is the epitome of what kindness and great customer service is! He is always ready to help with anything that needs done, whether it’s helping a patient find their way down the hall, cleaning anything, or finding a lost & found item with a big smile.

Tim is who we all should aspire to be like. He keeps us running!”

Murray Hubiak

“Murray Hubiak is an exemplary member of the Human Resources team. Murray not only provides outstanding service but genuinely cares for all individuals he comes in contact with. He is the type of person who sees the positive before the negative and how important of a reminder that is in the world that we live in. He takes tremendous pride in his work which is second to none.”

APRIL HERO 4

“Britt is a WhidbeyHealth Hero because she stands with and for WhidbeyHealth and its patients. She has been a dedicated member of Patient Access, who is the first impression of WhidbeyHealth to our patients. Working alongside her, I can attest to her tremendous customer service skills.

Our ED patients are usually having one of their worst days if they are sick or injured and Britt working as a registrar is there to receive them with her unyielding compassion. Her top priority is to make each and every patient’s experience at WhidbeyHealth, a great one.

She strives for equality and exceptional care for our patients and promotes the success of our hospital. She is so admired for all she contributes to the WhidbeyHealth team – she is a hero!”
