Employee of the Month- May 2023

Michelle Chidester, Registered Nurse

Our May Employee of the Month, Michelle Chidester, began her journey at Missouri Delta the day after Christmas in 1989 as a nurse on the pediatric floor. After working in peds for several years she moved to the pharmacy where she operated as the IV Infusion Therapist. That position led her to recognize the need for a full-time radiology nurse. Michelle was an integral part in creating that new position. She worked as the Radiology Department Nurse from that point until the opening of Missouri Delta Cancer & Infusion Center in 2007 where she remains.

Her co-workers wrote, “Michelle is very knowledgeable, great with patients, caring, loving, and works well with staff. She has been at the Cancer and Infusion Center since the doors opened and works hard to keep herself up to date with the latest treatments, cycles, etc. to ensure the absolute best care for her patients. The cancer doctors who come to the Infusion Center value Michelle’s expertise and opinion. She is a fearless leader who will stop at nothing to ensure her patients are receiving the best possible treatment. Michelle is a huge asset to MDMC and deserves to be recognized not only for her years of service but also for her dedication to patient care which is the epitome of what healthcare should be.”

Michelle, thank you for your unwavering commitment to Missouri Delta and our patients! We are blessed to have you on our team.
