EMH Celebrates Employee Recognition Dinner 2008 [cached]

On Wednesday, June 25th, EMH had the very special opportunity to celebrate Dottie Hinson's retirement following 36 years of continuous service. Dottie's choice for a celebratory treat was cheesecake with a variety of toppings. Just as dessert is served at the end of a fine meal, this treat was enjoyed at the end of a long and distinguished career.

Dottie's career in nursing began immediately after high school when she received a scholarship. She knew that she wanted to attend college and had worked as a nurse's aide the summer after her senior year so she felt that was the career she would pursue. At the time, it was not the norm for women to attend college, however, being independent, Dottie knew that she wanted to pursue a vocation in nursing. Dottie attended St. Joseph School of Nursing in Ottumwa, Iowa, and graduated from the 3-year nursing diploma program.
Upon starting at EMH on the Med-Surg floor, Dottie shared that there was no orientation like there is today. "You just punched in and began work," she reminisced.
Of her years at EMH, Dottie has many fond memories of the patients and staff. She will always have a soft spot in her heart for all of the behavioral health patients, knowing she's helped them in some way. She felt that two nurses, Betsy Loveland and Dorothy Brightwell, had the biggest impact on her career. Dottie said they were both outstanding nurses who taught her a great deal about caring for people in special ways.
Dottie and her husband, Chuck, were married in August of 1964, and have two sons, Christopher and Mark. Christopher and his wife are optometrists at the Georgia Eye Institute and have one daughter, Kendall, age 11. Mark lives in Marshfield, Wisconsin, and is a Radiologist. He and his wife have four sons: Alec, 9, Sammy, 6, Chase, 4, and Brooks, 2. Future plans for Dottie and Chuck include travel, starting with a trip to Europe this summer. She will also have more time to be more involved in her grandchildren's lives. There will be more summer living at the Minnesota cabin as well.
When asked for a farewell message to the staff, Dottie says simply, "Keep on keeping on!" She also hopes that mental health stays a vital part of the care that we provide here at EMH, and that we will all be advocates for these special patients.
Your 36 years of service are well noted Dottie.
