MHP employees named among '100 Great Iowa Nurses'

OSKALOOSA — Mahaska Health Partnership nurses Andrea Hagist, BSN, MSN, of Ottumwa; Michelle Manternach, RN, of Eddyville; and Kerrilyn Nunnikhoven, RN, of Oskaloosa, have been named to the 10th annual listing of “100 Great Iowa Nurses.”

This award recognizes outstanding nurses whose exceptional contributions to patients, colleagues and their profession are truly remarkable. More than 350 nominations from around the state of Iowa were first evaluated by reviewers, and final selection was determined by representatives of the Iowa Hospital Association, Iowa Nurses Association and the Iowa Nurses Foundation. Recipients were honored at a special celebration recognizing National Nurses Week on May 4 at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines.

According to MHP Chief Nursing Officer Darlene Keuning RN, BSN, MS, those chosen for this honor are to be commended for advancing and leading the profession of nursing.

“It is a great affirmation of the skill, quality and compassion of the nursing staff at Mahaska Health Partnership,” Keuning said. “I’m extremely proud that three of our nurses received this independent, external recognition. Our nurses know the value of making health care personal for our patients and visitors, and having three of them recognized for this prestigious honor reaffirms our belief that we have the best nursing staff in the region.”

Hagist currently serves as the director of MHP’s emergency services. She supervises and manages emergency and ambulance services, coordinates emergency preparedness and supervises MHP’s trauma program. She also oversees the medical examiner investigators in Mahaska County.

With more than 20 years as a nurse, Hagist has devoted her career to caring for those in need and improving the quality of care provided by others. She willingly takes on the responsibility and challenge of teaching others and is a leader who is open to questions. She maintains her role as mentor to new nursing directors and is the “go-to” person for many other directors who have questions regarding leadership.
