"ASC is an incredible team. I truly think this is what makes us so special. When you look around, you see a dedicated group of individuals that are willing to go above and beyond for their patients, their clients, and their co-workers. Many of the staff members have been with the hospital since the beginning, and their commitment to ASC’s continued growth is part of why I chose to join this team.

ASC encourages me to pursue innovative and creative treatment plans for a wide variety of cases. My fellow colleagues are always available to brainstorm options for our more challenging patients. Our departments are able to coordinate treatments to be able to meet the needs of our clients, which is always highlighted as something that sets us apart."

"I came to ASC shortly after passing my VTNE as my first job as an LVT. I knew I wanted to work in a fast pace environment and ASC was the perfect place to help hone my skills.

Being at ASC has allowed me to grow into a skilled and efficient technician. Because of the doctors, fellow technicians, and management I've had the confidence and knowledge to advance to a training lead, a shift lead, and now ER & ICU supervisor. Here at ASC you're encouraged to grow and reach your full potential, whether it's working towards your VTS or going down the administrative path.

Knowing that you are part of a team that works diligently, around the clock, to save as many lives as possible is an indescribable feeling. Working in emergency and critical care, where I can advocate for my patients, is my passion. I can't imagine working in a different specialty nor at a different hospital."
