Roxann Cavey always wanted to work in the medical field.

When she was still in nursing school, Cavey got a job working as a tech with the Medical Intensive Care Unit at GBMC.

The hands-on experience there made for a smooth transition into becoming a nurse on that floor. Cavey said the small, homey feel of the hospital makes it a perfect fit for her.

"Everyone's very caring and open and would really care for their own patients as if it were their own family members," Cavey said.

She looks forward to coming to work every day.

"Lots of patients have had impacts on me, I would say I think what touches me the most is when you do relate to them and it's not just like they are a patient, you sort of get that emotional feel with them because it could be your own family member," Cavey said.
