April Christensen, NP, at St. Joseph Regional Medical Center’s Cancer Center and Blood Institute serves as a wonderful example of a provider of extraordinary care to patients at the hospital.
One patient was so thankful for Christensen’s dedication to personalized care. She said: “I cannot say enough praises for April Christensen, NP at the SJRMC Blood Institute. She’s funny, kind, and doesn’t speak over the patient’s head.
What’s so amazing is that at my mother’s appointment, she told my mom, “I will call your daughter with the plan.”
She called me – within hours – with my mom’s labs and plan.
My mom’s labs were not at panic levels, nor were they anything urgent. The call was something that could have been delayed to another day, written in a letter or her nurse could have called.
I was just beyond amazed. If April says she is going to do something, she does it.
We have received care at other facilities and felt like I had to do a lot of follow-up work, not with April. April knows how to care for the whole person – mind, body and soul! Thank you a million times!”
