Julie Thiel


"Julie Thiel has been a valued team member of VCHS for more than 15 years! 

She helps Acute, Specialty Clinic, Surgery, and is a certified central sterile supply technician, as well as a certified instrument specialist. Julie goes wherever she can to assist others. She never complains about getting redirected at a moment's notice for urgent tasks. She researches OR instruments for purchase and ensures they are all kept in excellent condition. Julie works in the OR, cleans, wraps, and sterilizes the instruments. She also handles the instruments for the entire health system. We would be lost with out her. 

Julie takes pride in her work and it shows. Our surgeons love working with her; even though she only sees most of them a few times a month, she is always one step ahead of them. Julie is kind, compassionate, and dependable. Thank you for all your hard work Julie!"
