Jean-Herve Mondestin, BS, RRT, Manager, Respiratory, The Valley Hospital
"I cherish patient care more than anything else."
Six years in the Army Reserve prepared Herve Mondestin well for managing Valley Health System's Respiratory Department. Communication, he learned, is everything.
"Nothing gets done without teamwork, so the better we communicate, the easier the workflow will be," he says.
In almost 15 years with Valley Hospital, Herve has worked his way up from floor therapist to department manager. He oversees inpatient and outpatient respiratory care throughout the organization.
"As an employer, Valley really helps you advance your career and better yourself," he says. "They encourage continuous education with tuition reimbursement and flexible scheduling around your courses. It's a great system to work for."
While his day consists of many different tasks, his favorite part of the job is still helping people. "I cherish patient care more than anything else," he says. "It is very rewarding driving home at the end of the day knowing I made a difference in someone's life."
