In April 2009, Lisa Mulvany began her journey with our team. Since nursing school, she always knew she wanted to be a hospice nurse. Her dream was fulfilled when one of her clinical rotations was at Hospice of Southern Illinois and she learned about an open position. Eleven years later, Lisa wears burgundy proudly, stating “this is the best job I have ever had.”
Receiving “many thanks” from the exhausted family members, and providing compassionate, end-of-life care, while simultaneously “being there to support the family,” enhanced the meaning of being a hospice nurse for Lisa.
While she misses nursing at the bedside, as the Regulatory Compliance Director, Lisa still ensures patients and their families receive quality end-of-life care, and strives to “execute regulations and processes to ensure positive patient outcomes.”
Knowing the choice to receive hospice is one of the most difficult decisions a person will ever have to make, Lisa consistently demonstrates the Integrity and Excellent core values Hospice of Southern Illinois aims to achieve. “Hospice of Southern Illinois is one of the most ethical organizations I know, and I am proud to be a part of this team carrying out our mission everyday,” she proclaims.
When Lisa is not implementing best practices and strengthening our mission in the office, she’s building relationships in the community with Chamber of Commerce members in her hometown of Troy, Illinois. In fact, she even gets recognized in town as a Hospice of Southern Illinois team member.
Living by the quote “he who angers you, conquers you,” Lisa surrounds herself with those that make her happy and smile. She loves spending time with her family, including her children, daughters-in-law, and six grandchildren. More specifically, grilling out and watching Cardinals baseball.
We are honored to have Lisa’s smiling face and positivity radiate throughout Hospice of Southern Illinois. If you see her out in the community, let her know you appreciate her dedication and hard work as much as we do.
