Valley County Health System has elected to become a Community Partner with the NE Department of Health & Human Services program, ACCESSNebraska.
ACCESSNebraska is the quick, easy way to find and apply online for Nebraska public assistance benefits. Now there is no need to go to a DHHS office or wait in line. Individuals can self-screen and apply online for many Nebraska public assistance benefit programs.
ACCESSNebraska can be accessed on any computer with Internet access-at home, at the library, at many community agencies such as senior centers, community action agencies, and at many Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) offices. To access the site, click here.
VCHS is one of the local organizations that provides online registration assistance to our patients and the general public by appointment. For more information or to schedule an appointment, contact Kim Koch at 728.4316.
Gold Star Award
Integrity: In September and October, this person was taking on multiple positions. Her plate was extremely full, but she never complained and then was more than willing to help train a person to take over her previous position.
Professionalism: Even doing her job duties, she is always more than willing to help with what is asked of her, and has taken on more roles, all while still asking “How can I help you?” with a smile on her face. If the weather is bad, she comes in early. She is constantly thinking outside the box with how we can best help our residents.
Respect: She is always willing to listen and give valuable input to resident needs or LTC development.
Compassion: She is compassionate about her work, residents and families that we care for. If she ever needs to be in charge, we can trust her to make the right decisions.
Ownership & Communication: She takes her job role very seriously. To ensure our residents receive the best care needed to meet their needs, she is constantly working on care plans and communicating with the resident’s family members.
COMMITTED TO THE TEAM: She is very committed to our team, is a joy to work with, and has been a big help during our transition at VVLC!
Congratulations, Melanie Hansen! You are a Gold Shining Star!
