Mary Lopas

Mary Lopas is a proud Door County native. "When I was young, I couldn't wait to get out of here," she remembers, adding, "So I went to school at the UW, but then quickly discovered that I missed home - Door County is a beautiful place. When I returned, I got married, raised our family, and began working in my field."

Jody Boes

Jody Boes was always drawn toward healthcare. As a child growing up in Door County, she constantly carried around the doctor/nurse kit, and she looks back at her early experiences taking care of her grandmother, and losing relatives at an early age, and feels that being a nurse—becoming a nurse—is a calling that continually led her to ask, "How can I make a difference in the lives of others?"

A New Home for Pepper

At Door County Medical Center, we often see people who are undergoing major life transitions. Sometimes these transitions are filled with joy, such as the arrival of a new baby in our community. Other times, we see the grief of losing a loved one or the difficulty of a life-changing diagnosis. These experiences are as unique as the people who walk through our doors. But at every step, DCMC staff and providers are here to make these life changes as seamless as possible. Sometimes, these transitions affect not just the patient, but also the employees who care for them.
