Mary and her husband, Marlin, live on a small farm south of Granite Falls. They have 5 children, 13 grandchildren and 4 cats! Mary’s hobbies include – quilting, reading, gardening and hunting.
When asked what Mary likes about her job at the Granite Falls Hospital and Manor, she stated “The best parts of the job are the excellent co-workers surrounding me and their willingness to make our facility great! In the Medical Records Department, the majority of us have coding experience so if I have a question, there is a lot of knowledge to tap into. I like the fact that the coding process itself is consistent, but every admission is different. Each admission challenges me to provide the most accurate coding I can with the information available. I really enjoy working in my home town!! When I tell people that I work in the hospital, it makes me proud to hear the positive feedback from former patients and their families. It makes me feel good that I can help people that I have known most of my life. I may not be on the front line for patient care, but I am a part of the line!”
Congratulations Mary on being chosen Employee of the Month and thank you for all you do! You are appreciated!
