Parish Nurse

Meet Heidi! Heidi Madsen serves as the Saint Rita Parish Nurse. She is an RN whose primary focus is the Saint Rita faith community, a role she has done for over 25 years (and she loves every minute of it!)

Says Heidi, "My ministry is parish nursing, and my goal is health promotion and disease prevention. I provide holistic care, connecting the mind, body, and spirit for each patient so he or she can strive for wellness! I emphasize to promote independence and prevent decline, support lifestyle changes as they relate to health and wellness, and offer health education and tips."

Heidi supports all patients and their families by making home visits, accompanying patients to their doctor appointments, making Emergency Room, hospital, and nursing home visits, providing comfort at end-of-life journeys, and promoting a healthy lifestyle for all parishioners.
