Marybeth Hannon has worked as a Registered Nurse at Springfield Regional Medical Center for six years and is assigned to the Emergency Department. She is part of the triage team and is one of the first people patients meet when they arrive. She greets them with a caring attitude and a smile. In her effort to help improve the delivery of patient care, Marybeth has continually reached out to learn and grow. She studied EPIC Electronic Health Records software and became a credentialed trainer for both nurses and physicians. Due in part to her efforts, the new electronic medical record system was able to go online the same day patients were moved to the Medical Center’s new facility. Marybeth demonstrates the institution’s core values every day, showing compassion and kindness to each of her patients. She goes above and beyond as a patient advocate and has recently completed training to become a sexual assault nurse examiner, allowing her to continue her growth as a strong patient advocate. Marybeth’s dedication to quality patient care and a willingness to grow her abilities through additional education have made her a valued resource and role model. Marybeth earned her A.S.N. at Clark State Community College.
