A relationship that has lasted over 24 years— Kristy Ludwig
It has been over 24 years since my relationship with Lebanon Family Health first began. I learned about LFHS at the age of 16 from a friend at school. I was looking for confidential reproductive health care. LFHS provided me with services specifically for me at that time in my life. Years later, I utilized the prenatal program at LFHS and received care while I was pregnant with my 2nd and 3rd children. LFHS has allowed me to choose when my pregnancies occurred and empowered me to take control of my healthcare. Today, I expose my daughters to the values and mission embodied by LFHS.
My respect for the mission and contribution LFHS gives to this community inspired me to be more than a patient. Through the past 24 years I have also been an employee in over 4 positions- administrative assistant, nutrition assistant, breastfeeding peer support, prenatal nurse and my current position as a clinic manager. I have remained connected with LFHS during all stages of my life. As a stay-at-home mom, I was a volunteer at community outreach activities. As an employee, it has been a sincere pleasure to return the service I received as a young patient and support a mission that meets the needs of our community. I admire the phenomenal group of women who are caring, strong, supportive, knowledgeable and valued.
