The Door County Medical Center Mission and Values Team Hard at Work

Recently, the Door County Medical Center (DCMC) Mission and Values Team along with local churches worked together to help the Afghanistan Refugees through the Afghan Refugee Assistance project known as Operation Wisconsin Joy.

Operation Wisconsin Joy donationsSupplies collected from DCMC employees nearly filled a 10-foot trailer. Volunteers worked to group like-items together and deliver them to Team Rubicon and Catholic Charities of Green Bay who continue to be involved in assisting the newcomers to our state.

Pastor James Gomez of Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Sturgeon Bay, says, “It’s hard to quantify demonstrations of love and care, and saying, ‘we filled a trailer’ doesn’t do it justice.”

In addition to the supply drive for Operation Wisconsin Joy, the team is celebrating the following important accomplishments that ensure Door County Medical Center fulfills its mission to further the healing ministry of Jesus Christ by improving the health and well-being of our community, especially those in need:

  • Hosted a week-long food drive which will provide food for our community Parishes to serve those in need.

  • Organized the Ministry Fund Silent Auction. The mission of The Ministry Fund is to further the healing ministry of Jesus by continually improving the health and well-being of all people, especially those in need. The Mission and Values team worked behind the scenes to make this event a success and easily accessible to all by bringing it online. $10,750.50 was raised this year during the auction - the highest total ever!

Additionally, the DCMC Mission and Values team recognizes employees that exemplify one of the DCMC Values through the “Living Our Values” Award. Employees submit nominations for fellow employees they see that demonstrate one of the four core values of Door County Medical Center. Those values are: 

  • Service. We make intentional decisions and take actions to benefit our patients, community, and each other.

  • Compassion. We genuinely care about people’s needs. We treat everyone like the family, friends and neighbors they are. This sets us apart from other healthcare organizations.

  • Vision. We use innovation and our expertise to improve the health of the communities we serve and to sustain and grow our health care ministry.

  • Excellence. We are engaged to deliver the best outcomes in quality, service, finance, culture and growth.

2021 Mission and Values “Living Our Values” Award Recipients


Carla Mission & Values AwardCarla Gunnlaugson in the Environmental Services Department was nominated by Dr. Amy Fogarty for her demonstrated Compassion. According to Dr. Fogarty, Carla, “...see[s] each resident as a person, inherently deserving of the utmost care and respect.”

Carla’s caring nature is evidenced in everything she does and her work is absolutely priceless.


Deb Mission & Values AwardDeborah Meyer from the Quality Department was recently awarded the Door County Medical Center “Living Our Values” Award for her demonstration of the value of Excellence. 

Deborah was nominated by all Care Managers at Door County Medical Center. They state, “Deb had been integral in developing DCMC’s community response to COVID-19 from the beginning.” Deb has been responsible for the COVID Hotline and the COVID Testing Site, ensuring a positive patient experience and maintaining a calm environment. 

Service Winner

Cindy Mission & Values AwardCindy Conley-Powers in the Health Information Management Department was nominated for the Door County Medical Center “Living Our Values” Award by Wendy Bongle for her demonstration of  the value of Service.

Wendy nominated Cindy because of her leadership of implementing a major, and daunting change in Evaluation and Management coding for clinic providers. This overhaul was known industry wide to be quite a task, but Cindy stepped up and as a result, DCMC was able to transition by the compliance date, with no complaints, crises or trauma. 

Vision Winner

Mike Mission & Values AwardMike Jarman of Marketing was nominated by Veronica Behme of the Door County Medical Center Orthopedics team for the final “Living Our Values” Award for his demonstration of  the DCMC value of Vision.

Veronica recognizes the importance of the role Mike plays in the video, visual and online communications published by DCMC in educating the public and motivating patients to take action regarding their health. Veronica says that Mike is, “...unbelievably easy to work with and always a positive force on any work team or project.” And, “His work often takes place in the background of our organization, but his innovation and expertise help us to reach deep into the community we are here to serve.

To the winners of the Living Our Values Awards, we applaud your expertise, genuine care and commitment to our patients’ needs. Thank you and congratulations!
