The Provider of the Month is chosen from nominations submitted by fellow HSHS Medical Group team members. “Lynn Billhartz goes above and beyond to keep our patient’s safe. Lynn recently had a good catch on a patient. The patient had been in the hospital and a critical test result was overlooked and never given to the patient upon discharge from the hospital. Upon a routine office visit, Lynn reviewed this patient’s records and realized this hospital oversight. Lynn promptly referred the patient on to a specialist to ensure his needs were addressed. Thank you, Lynn, for keeping our patients safe! Lynn is a very caring provider and makes it her life's work to make sure patients are well taken care of. She is always willing to add more patients onto her schedule to make sure we meet their needs. She is a patient-first provider.”
Her favorite part of her job is building rapport with the patients and helping them become the healthiest version possible. “I truly look forward to coming to work each day. Medicine has been my calling in life, and I enjoy guiding patients into a healthier lifestyle. The partnership with the other providers and employees who are always willing to go above and beyond makes my mission with HSHS fulfilling,” said Lynn. “I feel a sense of satisfaction when helping patients become a healthier version of themselves and try to be compassionate when going the patients are going through difficult times.”
When Lynn isn’t busy at work, she enjoys spending time with her family and being outdoors.
