At MMH, our patients speak volumes.
Local Mom Grateful for Support During Difficult Time
Monday, Dec 4, 2023
On January 27, 2021, Greensburg resident Jamie Holtkamp was faced with some of the most devastating news a person can receive. With a 15-month-old daughter and baby No. 2 on the way, she was told she’d lost her husband, Adam, in a tragic farming accident.
Overwhelmed with grief, Jamie mourned the loss of her husband but also prepared for the upcoming birth of her son. Five weeks after the accident on March 2, Alden Joseph (A.J.) made his grand entrance into the world.
“I don’t remember a lot of details from my delivery,” said Jamie, “but I do remember how everyone made me feel. Dr. (Emily) Housley and Margaret Mary’s OB staff were accommodating and compassionate. I could tell everyone was aware of my situation and went out of their way to make me feel cared for.”
Several months passed, and by May, Jamie found herself in the job market looking for a career that could provide the flexibility she needed to raise her young family. With a degree in occupational therapy, Jamie was intrigued when she saw MMH was looking to add an occupational therapist to its team.
“I interviewed with the rehab manager and was offered the job,” said Jamie. “Looking back, I think about what a risk it must have been to hire me. I was a single mom with a new baby, and I was new on my grief journey. The rehab team was patient and accommodating. It wasn’t long before I knew I’d found a great fit.”
It’s been nearly three years since Jamie lost her husband, delivered her son and started her new job, but she’s grateful to MMH – both as a patient and team member.
“Margaret Mary has always taken care of me and my family,” said Jamie. “Pay and benefits are important, but I’m so grateful to be a part of a community that cares.”
