One of Our Own: Diane McDonald, RN, BSN
Diane recently celebrated 25 years of employment with Doylestown Health. As a nurse on Doylestown Hospital's 3 West Acute Care Unit, Diane is a role model and mentor. She is known for her professionalism, outstanding technical skills and for the personalized care she provides to her patients.
I chose nursing because... "I always wanted to be in a helping profession. My mother, Susan, was a nurse, and I respected the empathy and compassion she exhibited in her work."
Doylestown Health is special because . . . "We offer technically sophisticated care, with a community hospital feel. Patients always tell me that they would never go anywhere else."
It is important . . . "To recognize that each patient is a unique human being. I approach patient care the way I would want my loved ones to be treated. For example, if my dad were a patient, I would want someone to look beyond his diagnosis or symptoms and see how funny and intelligent he is."
I can't say enough about . . . "The culture at Doylestown Health. From our CEO down, there is a focus on personalized care. We are supported and encouraged to go the extra mile for patients."
It's amazing to see . . . "How many long-term Associates we have with 15, 25, 35, even 40-plus years of service! That's a testament to the fact that Doylestown Health is a great place to work!"
