Kansas City Surgicenter in Overland Park, Kan., it's the heavy weight of responsibility: "The buck stops with me," she says. "That can be kinda scary." Enough doom and gloom. The good stuff includes great rela- tionships with staff, patients and physicians; the more-or-less predictable hours; scheduling flexibility; the ability to affect posi- tive change and solve problems; diversity of tasks; growing patient volumes; and feeling challenged and inspired. "I enjoy supporting the staff members," says Lance Baldwin, MSN, RN, vice president of operations at Northwest Eye Surgeons in Seattle, Wash. "I hope that I'm providing a workplace that peo- ple enjoy working at. They spend the majority of their waking life at work, so it should be nice." Says Norma Bacon, administrator at New England Surgery Center in Beverly, Mass., "I've been here since the ASC was built. It is my 'baby' and watching it grow has been wonderful." For Pat Ontoun, BSN, RN, clinical manager of perioperative services at Physicians Adventist Surgery Center in Glendale, Calif., it's about making a good situation better: "I enjoy making changes to the work environment that positively impact the work- ing conditions of the staff and allow the center to run more effi- ciently." For Andi Boren, BSN, RN, director of nursing at Surgery Center 121 in Plano, Texas, the most rewarding aspect of her job is the never-ending opportunity for personal and professional growth. "I get to learn something new every day, sharpen my management skills, teach others, exercise a great deal of autonomy, utilize my problem-solving abilities and lead others in a mission that I am so passionate about," she says. — Joe Paone J A N U A R Y 2 0 2 0 • O U T PA T I E N T S U R G E R Y.
