Careers at KVHC
A Few Words from Our KVHC Team…
“I moved to Maine first, and then looked for where I should work, which is the opposite of what most physicians do. There were a number of opportunities available to me. I chose KVHC because their mission of providing the community with accessible, and compassionate healthcare matched mine. I also had received a recommendation from a patient that I should consider KVHC. But I first tested their organization’s mission by presenting myself to the front desk at one of their sites to see how I would be received. I have learned that quality and compassionate care begins at the front desk and in the waiting room. I was pleasantly surprised when I was greeted by friendly staff who were competent to handle even an unusual situation. Over the past year of working here, I probably have tested the limits of our staff’s ability to “think outside the box” when caring for unusual patient situations. I continue to be impressed with my staff’s abilities and genuine interest in the welfare of our patients. It is truly a team effort that provides quality care for our community. So I have to say that the community and patients have kept me here, but also the people that I work with. I enjoy working at KVHC and am very satisfied that we are achieving our mission together.”

“The staff that I work with is exceptional! They make work worth coming into every day. I also love the patients that we have. They aren’t just patients, they are like family. They always look forward to seeing you when they come in, they have a way of making you feel special despite how horrible they may feel…. KVHC is an environment where you can come to work, be professional, yet have fun doing what you love to do….. There is growth potential, ongoing educational opportunities… we often touch lives and make differences, which to me is very rewarding.”
Danica Thornton, Medical Assistant
“I find my job very rewarding because I am able to help people each day. I know that my job allows me to make a difference in the lives of the patients I work with. I work with an amazing group of individuals who all strive to provide the best possible care to the patients we see. One of the many bonuses to working in rural Northern Maine is that the staff at KVHC are far more than just co-workers, we all work together as a team.”
