Jennifer Schneider

Care Management

Loretta Loveless

She worked very diligently to ensure the patients and their families have all resources available to handle any paperwork and navigate through the medical insurance system, which can be overwhelming. She went above and beyond the call of duty.
  • I would like to nominate Loretta because she is such an outstanding patient advocate. Loretta never plays favorites. She works just as hard for the patient who expects and demands everything as she does for the patient who would be lost without someone to help them work through the maze of agencies and paperwork to get the assistance they need.
  • Loretta came in on her off day to complete paperwork so my mother could be discharged on a Sunday. She was very quick and caring about the situation.
