Since the Fitzgibbon Hospital Auxiliary began, the members have contributed almost $1,000,000 for use in purchasing equipment and for scholarships for Fitzgibbon staff. These contributions directly affect patient care at Fitzgibbon Hospital.
Membership costs just $15 per year.
Callie has worked at Fitzgibbon since 2004, and is currently the Director of the Emergency Department and Intensive Care Unit, but she has worked in healthcare for more than 20 years. Callie is pursuing a Master's degree in Nursing Leadership to help her better continue in her role as Director of Critical Care. “I feel that by obtaining this leadership degree, I will learn strategies to increase my ability to empower my staff. (We) will help Fitzgibbon Hospital achieve great things and continue to deliver excellent care to our community.” Callie and her husband, Chris, live in rural Marshall. They have 11 children - 7 biological, and 5 that have come into their home in different ways. In her free time she watches her younger children in dance and baton twirling. She also sews and bakes in her spare time. Callie has been an active volunteer over the years, baking goodies for the Auxiliary’s fundraisers.
Victoria is a Fitzgibbon Hospital employee who is pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Health Information Management. She says the importance of being able to help people, no matter the circumstances, was instilled in her at a young age. “I realized how many people are behind the scenes in the care of a patient. This led me to Health Information.” She says she is proud to be involved in the healthcare field and to be a part of an amazing group of people. Outside of school and work, Victoria has been renovating a house with her husband. She also enjoys traveling and volunteering for a scholarship foundation for high school students.
