As part of the Year of the Nurse and Midwife, WellSpan Health would like to recognize members of our nursing staff who have previously served our country in the United States Armed Forces. To celebrate, we spoke to three nurses across the system who shared some of their experiences while serving in the military.
- Registered Nurse Lorrie Monoski of WellSpan Surgery and Rehabilitation Hospital was a member of the Army Reserves for six years.
- Registered Nurse Kurt Lewis, WellSpan Good Samaritan Hospital, was an Army Medic in the United States Army for seven years.
- Registered Nurse and the Administrative Director for Hospitalists, Pat McCulloh, WellSpan Chambersburg Hospital, was a nurse in the United States Navy Nurse Corps for 22 years.
“The culture of WellSpan really aligns with what we learn in the military – “Working as One”, teamwork, thinking outside of the box, being creative, and making things happen that we need to make happen,” Monoski said.
“We can make a difference in the care that we give and in that the service that we do to others, whether it be military personnel or civilian personnel,” McCulloh said.
