Terri A. Hamilton
System Staffing Office
What is your fondest memory from your 25 years working at Dartmouth-Hitchcock?
The memories that stand out most are from the eight years I spent as the support services coordinator on Pedi-5 East in Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth (CHaD). The pediatric patients and their families were amazing, strong, loving, resilient and wonderful. We saw them in their worst moments and often their happiest moments, and they always had positive attitudes and outlooks. It was inspiring to be with them through their journeys and to help them make their stay in the hospital better. Many of these children and their families will be in my heart forever.
What about your job inspires you?
I come to work inspired to do the best job I can for our patients, our staff and our visitors because I'm from this community. I feel like everyone should be treated like family.
I am inspired by the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC) staff who do an incredible job caring for our patients. I'm inspired by the employees who work hard to ensure that patients get what they need and the dedication, motivation and kindness I see at DHMC.
What do you like best about your department?
I just transferred from the System Staffing Office to the new TeleICU as the project coordinator in June, and I love it! The people are wonderful, the equipment is high-tech and the work is interesting. It's exciting to be part of this great team, and I'm looking forward to helping our staff implement systems and processes as we grow.
