ATKINSON —West Holt Medical Services held its annual Healthcare Career Day on Friday, January 25 for area juniors interested in the medical field.                                                                       

Participants included: Logan Wieneke, Nyah Kellner, Libby Wells, Brandi Heller and Marissa Pacha from West Holt High School; Samuel Jesse from Chambers High School; and Lainey Paxton, Madison Stracke and Alex Jarecke from Stuart High School.

Students explored healthcare careers through hands-on demonstrations and staff presentations in departments throughout the hospital, such as nursing, physical therapy, radiology, pharmacy, social work, health information and more.

Employees at West Holt Medical Services shared about their career path and what they do on a daily basis to care for patients.

“This was very informative. I enjoyed when departments demonstrated certain aspects of what they do. This showed me the different medical jobs and opportunities out there,” shared Madison Stracke.

The hospital plans to hold this event again next year.
