Brian Stephens, CEO of Door County Medical Center, reflects on the organization's enduring commitment: "More than 20 years later, we proudly continue this mission, improving the health and well-being of all, especially the underserved within our communities."

Empowered and Engaged

Working at Door County Medical Center means putting patients first, providing world-class care and having the balance you need to be your best self. DCMC is an award-winning hospital because of the shared passion for patient care.

"When I first interviewed at Door County Medical Center, it was made clear to me that the culture was the most important thing to our leaders and our staff—you really see that every single day," says Danielle Bloniarz, RN. "From our dedication to serving all patients, regardless of resources, to our constant pursuit of new ideas and innovations in healthcare, Door County Medical Center truly stands out as a fantastic place to work."

Jodi Griep, MA adds, "When I was hired, I made it clear that I'm a mom and that balancing parenthood and work is important to me. I've been fortunate that they've fully respected that; I've never had to miss any of my kids' school events because they accommodate those days off."

Support and Recognition

Joining DCMC means becoming part of a healthcare community where everyone—from physicians to staff—works together to provide the best care possible. Our shared passion for patient care fosters a culture of empowerment, support, and appreciation.

We deeply value our team members and strive to recognize their outstanding contributions. "Our BEE, DAISY, and Mission and Values awards are a testament to the excellence and dedication our staff exhibit in patient care," affirms Christa Krause MHA, MSN, RN, CPHQ, DCMC's Chief Nursing Officer. These awards serve to highlight the commitment our team demonstrates in providing exceptional service to our patients and community.

Nursing DAISY AwardFor example, DCMC's DAISY Committee presents 4 awards annually, with each recipient receiving a certificate and a spotlight article on the DAISY Foundation website. Recipients are also eligible for numerous benefits and opportunities including grants, reduced American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) certification fees, tuition scholarships, and conference opportunities.

"We are so fortunate to have over 200 nurses at DCMC that work tirelessly to care for those in need and touch so many lives through their skill and compassion," says Krause. "The DAISY Award," she continues, "is a way for patients, community members and fellow staff to recognize these efforts."

SPARC: Start the Path to a Rewarding Career

Doctor talking to nursing studentsDespite the nationwide nursing shortage impacting communities everywhere, DCMC addresses the challenge head-on with SPARC—Start the Path to a Rewarding Career. This on-the-job training program supports aspiring Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs), Certified Medical Assistants (CMAs), Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs), and Registered Nurses (RNs) by offering financial assistance and on-the-job hours for licensure and certification.

"DCMC is dedicated to eliminating barriers to successful healthcare careers. We understand that taking time off from employment in order to complete an education program may not be possible, even if tuition is covered," says Brian Stephens.

In collaboration with Northeast Wisconsin Technical College, participants gain valuable education, training, and clinical hours, paving the way for a successful healthcare career.

Richard Hogan, MD echoes this sentiment, expressing gratitude for the county's abundance. "What's not to love?
