Lori Schobert, Receptionist/Medical Records, joined us a year ago. Lori joined the Hospice of Southern Illinois’ team after “watching and admiring for many, many years how my (now) co-workers were so caring, friendly, responsive and wonderful when they are out in the field. I decided if there was a job that came up at Hospice of Southern Illinois, that I was able to do, I would go after it. This organization represents and does so much for the people and communities that we serve. I wanted to be part of it.” Lori is one of the voices of Hospice of Southern Illinois. You can count on her friendly and professional voice to assist your needs. She makes sure our patients and families get to the correct nurse, social worker or other healthcare professional to get their questions or needs met. Lori also helps caregivers communicate with our team to ensure the highest quality of care. She adds: helping patients and families is one of the favorite parts of her job. She also loves her co-workers that she works beside and supports each day!
Lori is a true asset to us. Among all her great qualities, her positive attitude, willingness to help others and work ethic stand out beyond the rest. Lori values being a positive energy in the office. She works hard to support the whole team, which can be extremely important in the always-changing healthcare field and, specifically, in hospice care. “It is hard to leave what you already know or have known for years. However, when you take the step to work at Hospice of Southern Illinois, you will be working with the BEST caregivers I have ever seen, from the administration to nursing or anyone else who has the pleasure of having a career at Hospice of Southern Illinois.” Lori, it’s our pleasure to have you as an employee. Thank you for all you do!
Outside of the office you can find Lori doing lots of outdoor activities. Some of her favorite hiking spots include Pere Marquette & Garden of the Gods. She also enjoys area lakes and walking the track at Moody Park at Longacre, watching the geese and ducks. Anything that keeps her active, involved in the community, and talking to people will keep her happy.
