May Shining Star at Pella Regional: Chris Heesch

Chris Heesch

PELLA — Chris Heesch, Director of Clinic Services, was selected as Pella Regional Health Center’s May Shining Star for his high performance standards.

Heesch, resident of Pella, was nominated based on commitment to safety and leadership.

Excerpts from his nomination:

“I would like to recognize Chris Heesch for his leadership during the COVID-19 crisis, specifically his implementation of the Patient Assessment Center (PAC). With his leadership, he was able to rally an inter-departmental team to create an off-site clinic that was functional within 48 hours. He worked closely with the team to continue to hone processing and assure patient safety in a remote setting. He has also developed a plan to sunset the PAC but with documentation of setup, processes and design to assure that if the need arises we can launch the PAC in short order and re-create as needed.”

Heesch will receive a $100 gift, a plaque and will automatically be included in the nominations for Shining Star of the Year award.
