Count on Rockin’ Dr. Emily Mitchell for compassion, commitment at Elkhart

Congratulations to Dr. Emily Mitchell of Elkhart General Hospital for being a Doc Who Rocks!

A Rockin’ Doc is a physician who brings his or her best to Beacon Health System each day. Associates and colleagues nominated Dr. Mitchell for this distinction because she makes authentic and trustworthy personal connections to create moments that matter for patients, families and staff members. Here are some of the reasons why her Beacon team members think Dr. Mitchell rocks:

• Dr. Mitchell is a joy to work with. One day I called her multiple times about a patient and she always responded promptly, compassionately and professionally.
• Dr. Mitchell is not only awesome with her patients, she is supportive of the nurses who care for her patients, too.
• The exceptional care of patients is Dr. Mitchell’s number one priority. She comes into the operating room before procedures to ensure the staff has everything she may need and to answer any questions. She often helps move and position patients.
• Dr. Mitchell initiates conversation with staff to get to know them and make them feel at ease. She is truly compassionate — I worked really late with her one evening and she did everything she could to help me get out early so I could get some sleep.

Thank you for your compassionate patient care and your commitment to your team, Dr. Mitchell! You’re a Rockin’ Doc!
