Jentry Hise, GCH Clinics LPN

Special to the Times Vedette

An LPN at Guthrie County Hospital and Clinics has been named an honoree on the 2024 list of 100 Great Iowa Nurses.

Each year, the 100 Great Iowa Nurses program asks for patients, coworkers, friends and family members to nominate an outstanding nurse for recognition. After a review process, 100 Great Iowa Nurses are honored each year at a ceremony created for the state of Iowa.

This year, Jentry Hise, GCH Clinics LPN, was included in the list. She was nominated by a community member and will be recognized at a virtual award ceremony in the spring. Below are excerpts from her nomination letter.

“Jentry is the nurse at the small-town clinic in our town. Known and loved by all as a nurse. She’s worked at the clinic in our town longer than anyone else that’s come and gone from there. If that doesn’t speak for itself, then I don’t know what does. She serves her small town as the only nurse in town, on boards, and volunteers for organizations and fundraisers. Her hard work and dedication to the community speaks for itself as she always demonstrates compassion for the community and the nursing field.”
