Celebrating Our People – Meet Darcy
While at Berea College, a pre-med major, Darcy Maupin was inspired after watching the care and compassion nurses at the VA hospital showed her father when he was ill. She changed her major to nursing and began working as a student employee at Saint Joseph Berea in 1986.
More than three decades later, Darcy is a nurse manager in the emergency department, as well as the chest pain coordinator and emergency preparedness leader for the hospital.
“I knew in high school that I wanted to go into health care, but my call to serve came when I was taking care of my dad,” Darcy said. “My father was sick with cancer, and he was the primary parent raising three girls at the time. He died three months after the diagnosis. When he was at the VA hospital, the nurses were so nice to him and treated him with so much care and compassion, it made me want to be [a nurse].”
With more than twenty years at the bedside and 12 years in management, Darcy said her goal is to make sure those she supports have the knowledge and resources they need to help patients.
“I try to foster [my employees’] growth, and we have people who are really caring and compassionate, driven to take care of patients,” Darcy said.
