RANGELY — Two positions have recently been filled at the hospital.
Nick Goshe is now chief of nursing services and Shelly Hooper is the health information manager for the medical staff.
Goshe comes to RDH from Tiffin, Ohio, a town the size of Vernal. After high school, he received training as an emergency room technician and began working at the local hospital. He went on to earn an RN degree and worked his way up to emergency services manager.
His main concern now is recruiting more nurses and other staff as well as learning the operation of the Rangely facility. As soon as the construction on their new house is finished, he will be joined by his wife Starleen and their three children.
Goshe stated that Rangely is the ideal size of community he wanted to raise his family in and is looking forward to all the recreational adventures the area has to offer.
Hooper came from Ft. Worth, Texas, about 18 months ago, shortly after her husband Rus filled the position of pastor at the Rangely Christian Church.
She had been employed at CNCC until accepting the RDH position. Rus and Shelly also have three children, two of whom attend college in Texas and one who is currently in the dental hygiene program at CNCC.
Hooper hopes to oversee the adaptation of a digital records system and the electronic storage of the entire medical data base. This can proceed when the IT department finishes its upgrade and a suitable record system can be instituted.
