Each month, Urgent Care Hawaii will feature an employee who demonstrates a core value that exemplifies our mission.
Congratulations Paula on being our Featured Employee for November 2017!
The love of opportunities to grow and working in the healthcare field is what drew Paula to Urgent Care Hawaii (UCH). This native of Hawaii has been with UCH since 2014 where she started as an administrative assistant to CEO Donna Schmidt. Paula remarks, “Donna took me under her wing and guided me through the process of learning the business aspects of urgent care, and soon I became business manager.”
Paula is the one to call upon to help provide solutions to most any situation – from patients, to occupational medicine – she provides a reassuring tone and does whatever it takes to make problems better. She says, “So many times people get the runaround when they have questions or problems, especially when dealing with health care, insurance and occupational medicine and workers’ compensation issues. It can be frustrating. However, our team is always ready to help.”
A graduate of University of Hawaii West Oahu with a BA in healthcare administration, Paula is also a certified nursing aid and enjoys working part time at a private care home. She loves to travel and recently has been to Japan, South Korea and New York City!
Thank you Paula for your spirit of gratitude and joy that you bring to UCH every day!
Donna Schmidt, CEO
