"When a discharged patient invites you to stop by whenever you’re in the neighborhood, just to visit—it feels really good. It means you’ve succeeded in your patient goals.”
Emily RN Case Manager Home Care
Emily has served as a Registered Nurse Case Manager on Horizon’s Milwaukee team for almost four years. She recognizes how vulnerable some patients might feel, allowing a stranger into their home to care for them. That’s why putting them at ease and establishing a strong connection is so rewarding. “To get to a point where a discharged patient invites you to stop by whenever you’re in the neighborhood, just to visit—it feels really good. It means you’ve succeeded in your goal to keep that patient feeling comfortable and succeeding at home.”
"I truly appreciate the undivided attention I can provide patients in a one-on-one home setting. You’re reaching someone who might not seek care otherwise.”
Margaret RN Case Manager Home Care
For Milwaukee RN Case Manager Margaret, working at Horizon Home Care & Hospice is a family affair. Her mom is a retired Horizon nurse, and her daughter is a current Horizon nurse. All three of them truly appreciate the undivided attention they can provide patients in a one-on-one home setting. “You’re reaching someone who might not seek care otherwise. And, without any distractions, we can work on a plan of care together.”
“Home care allows us the opportunity to work in so many diverse areas. The sky’s the limit in this profession.”
Keisha Home Care RN Clinical Supervisor
Keisha loves that her job doesn’t confine her to one location. “Home care allows us the opportunity to work in so many diverse areas. We are not pigeonholed into just the hospital—the sky’s the limit in this profession.”
While she’s out in the field, she makes a personal connection with every patient she sees, and leaves a lasting impression. “No matter how long it’s been, my patients remember me. They may or may not remember my name, but they remember my smile, touch…the fact that I cared for them. It’s a legacy that will live on long beyond my time with them.”
“Horizon offered flexibility to change my hours and position several times while obtaining my Master's in Nursing degree, to support my family and graduate on time.”
Erika Hospice and Palliative Nurse Practitioner at Horizon
It was always her dream to earn her Masters in the Science of Nursing and obtain her family nurse practitioner license, and working at Horizon helped her do just that. "I can say with 100% certainty that without Horizon as my employer, this would not have been possible. Horizon allowed me the flexibility to change my hours and position several times over the course of obtaining my degree to remain full-time to support my family and also graduate on time."
"Horizon recognizes that we all need work/life balance, and they work hard to help us achieve it."
“For the first time in my nursing career, I have work/life balance. I just wish I’d known about Horizon when my kids were little.”
Kate MyChoice Family Care RN Case Manager
Kate has been an RN in Horizon’s MyChoice Family Care program for over two years, and in that time she has enjoyed the stability of a schedule without nights, weekends, holidays and on-calls. “I just wish I’d known about this position when my kids were little.”
Her role is “mentally stimulating,” she says, because of the day-to-day variety. She splits time between the office, the field, and working from home. Every minute on the clock is fulfilling, and off the clock, her time is her own. “This position is really good for me as a person.”
“I love that I get to help so many people in their own home, and I'm proud of being able to make patients comfortable during their end-of-life journey.”
Mai See RN Visit Nurse Hospice
Many Horizon employees know firsthand what it’s like to have a loved one in home care or hospice. Mai See was inspired to pursue a career in healthcare after her grandfather passed. She has been a Horizon Hospice Visit Nurse for four years.
“I love that I get to help so many people in their own home,” she says, and she’s most proud of being able to make patients comfortable during their end-of-life journey.
Along the way, her supervisors and colleagues are her support system. “Horizon is like family.”
“I thrive on doing different things, and being out and about. That’s why, for me, Horizon was ‘meant to be’. I’ve never left, and never will.”
Coral Physical Therapist, Rehab
For Coral, being a Physical Therapist with Horizon means lifting people out of crisis in various ways. There’s the actual physical therapy and rehab, but there are also emotional support and preventive education components to her job that keep her interested and engaged. “I thrive on doing different things, and being out and about. That’s why, for me, Horizon was ‘meant to be’. I’ve never left, and never will.”
“As big as we are as a company, we still feel like a family. I really love helping my coworkers as much as I can.”
Heather Development Specialist
Heather thrives in Horizon’s tight-knit culture. “As big as we are as a company, we still feel like a family.”
In fact, her positive attitude does a great deal to shape that culture. “I make it a point to meet everyone and make them feel welcome,” adding, “I really love helping my coworkers as much as I can.”
We thank Heather and all of our staff for making Horizon the great place to work that it is!
