JoAnn Van Winkle
Growing up in a small town, JoAnn Van Winkle, Patient Account Specialist for Hospice of Southern Illinois’ Accounting Department, has always appreciated that we help everyone in need within our 27 counties. “We are fortunate to have the opportunity to assist those in need.” She has been with us for 2 years now. Time has flown! We appreciate her expertise and knowledge with over 25 years of experience in the medical field.
At Hospice of Southern Illinois, Jo Ann enjoys the billing side of hospice care and the many different aspects of her position. She adds, “There is such variety in my job, I actually like everything.” She is an asset to our administrative staff, supporting the mission through her behind-the-scenes work that not many get to see. It’s the behind-the-scenes work that is so important to uphold our high ethical standards and continue our mission, to enhance the quality of life for individuals and their loved ones touched by a terminal illness. Speaking of standards, two of her favorite quotes confirm why we are lucky to have her a part of our team. She shared, “There is no ‘I’ in team,” by Michael Jordan, “Never forget the responsibility you have over the words you speak,” by Steven Aitcheison, and “You have the power to hurt, to heal, to open minds, open hearts and change the world,” by Steven Aitchison. Thank you, JoAnn, for your positive attitude, behind-the-scenes work, and contributions to our mission.
