Jeff HedlundCHI Oakes Hospital and Clinic are proud to employ “North Dakota Physician Assistant of the Year Nominee” Jeff Hedlund. Here is an excerpt from his nomination letter:

Jeff joined our practice in March 2011 and provides patient care in the clinic, hospital and emergency room settings. His calm, friendly demeanor earns the trust and respect of his patients and staff he encounters each day. The clinic staff calls him “cool as a cucumber” which helps him excel as a rural healthcare provider where resources are often limited and providers need to be more independent and think on their feet. He consistently scores high on our patient satisfaction surveys in all areas, with one patient noting, “he was very caring, good bedside manner and understanding” during their ER visit.

Jeff started with limited emergency room experience but he took on the challenge and has grown into an excellent provider in our Level V Trauma ER where it is staffed a majority of the time by mid-levels independently. He sought out additional training courses and also worked with our own resources at the hospital to gain the experience and confidence needed in being a rural ER provider. His clinic practice has grown quickly and he now has many loyal patients who trust him with their care. He also puts his keen problem solving skills to work when caring for patients on the hospital floor.

In a small rural community, providers need to be utilized in many different areas and Jeff has stepped up to the plate in those regards. His flexibility, communication skills and overall positive attitude makes him an asset to our staff and patients. Jeff has become a leader and a role model that our staff can turn to in any situation; this teamwork is what gives us the ability to provide excellent quality care for our community.

Thank you, Jeff, for your hard work and dedication to Oakes Community Hospital, Oakes Community Clinic, your fellow providers, staff and mostly your patients. Congratulations!
