Read their testimonials below on why TCHS is a great place to work, an asset to the community, and truly provides exceptional health close to home.


“TCHS has exceptional people inside of its walls committed to providing patients with the best possible care around. We have exceptional people in all departments, even beyond patient care, committed to making patients’ experiences the best possible. I want everyone in the community, even people who have taken healthcare business elsewhere to come in and experience firsthand what we get to see every day; amazing things are happening here! We’re proud of who we are and we want to share that with the community! Senior Leaders and directors have worked tirelessly to instill the new culture into our everyday work here and it shows.  When you walk down the hall, you see more smiles than not; I see employees greet and talk with patients all the time. Personalized care is something that I don’t think people in rural communities realize doesn’t happen in bigger cities.  When someone comes to TCHS, they get a deeper, more personal level of care.  People here genuinely care about making you better.  You aren’t just a number in a chart or a routine procedure.  Everyone in the facility has a vested interest in a patient’s health and wellbeing.” – Erica Christianson, Executive Assistant at TCHS

“I have worked at Thayer County Health Services for almost 13 years, and I love working where my talents are valued, and I am empowered to do my job to the best of my ability. I truly enjoy coming to work each day; the best part of my job is all the wonderful people I get to work with, who are some of the most caring and talented individuals I have ever met. TCHS continually keeps improving with all the facility upgrades, remodels, additions, and improvements, which means I now get to work in a beautiful facility and take advantage of having the new Korff Fitness & Wellness Center easily accessible for me to use before or after work. At TCHS, we strive to give our patients the best quality care possible, and every employee position is an important part of our TCHS team. Working for Thayer County Health Services allows me to be part of a team where we can make a difference in the lives of our customers and patients. As an employee, it’s a great feeling knowing that my job does make a difference. I work hard to take care of our employees, so they can be there to take care of our patients. Numerous employees have come and gone over the years, and I have had the pleasure of working with all of them, but I do feel that, currently, we have a team of employees who really work well together. The senior leaders, directors, and staff work hard together as a team.” – Cheryl Dougherty, Payroll

“I consider Thayer County Health Services to be my second home. My job as a pharmacist here has been very rewarding and interesting. I truly value all of my experiences here to date. The many challenges that face health care today, especially rural healthcare, are very apparent in the pharmacy world. While it can be stressful at times to manage the demands of work, those significant moments where I can make a difference in the life of a patient, visitor, or coworker reinforce the reason I work in healthcare. I love being a pharmacist, but being able to connect with people in a meaningful way is my real passion. TCHS has given me the opportunity to apply my professional skills, work in a beautiful facility, and build relationships, all of which I appreciate.” – Michael Logsdon, Pharmacy Director
