“Norton Healthcare has always had a very respected reputation in the community. If it weren’t for the people in leadership working behind the scenes and supporting us, we wouldn’t be able to care for these women.”
Janice E. Hill, BSN, RNC-OB, C-EFM, of Norton Hospital has been a labor and delivery nurse for decades — and she wouldn’t trade it for the world.
“It’s been more than 40 years since I was in nursing school,” she says, “From the moment I had a chance to do clinicals in the labor and delivery unit, I absolutely fell in love with it.”
Over the years, Janice’s career has allowed her to be a vital part of the amazing, life-changing days for countless mothers. She even had the opportunity to help deliver her own grandchildren. “My daughter delivered two babies in our unit,” she says. “One baby was born right after the pandemic started in 2020, and the other was in December 2021. In both situations, I would not have been able to attend the births because of limited hospital visitation, so it was a privilege to be there.”
Janice says the tremendous work opportunities she has been afforded are not just because she’s a labor and delivery nurse, but because she’s a labor and delivery nurse at Norton Healthcare. “Norton Healthcare has always had a very respected reputation in the community,” she says. “It did not take long to decide that it was the place I wanted to work.”
Janice says she is grateful for Norton Healthcare’s dedicated policymakers and leaders who strive diligently to be on the cutting edge of technology and communication. Their commitment to excellence means the staff is provided with constant support; allowing them to provide the best possible care to their patients — even when the birthing process is a bit complex.
“We often care for women who have very complicated pregnancies,” Janice says. “If it weren’t for the people in leadership working behind the scenes and supporting us, we wouldn’t be able to care for these women. It makes being a labor and delivery nurse meaningful and I’m very proud of that.”
