Nicki Gamet’s career in health care began in high school, when she served as a certified nursing assistant in her northern Missouri hometown of Milan. She knew early that she wanted a career caring for others, and now, she’ll be doing that as the new administrator for Mercy Hospital Lebanon.
“I look forward to continuing my journey with Mercy in this new leadership role,” Gamet said. “I’m excited to serve the community of Lebanon and assist our co-workers in their mission to serve others. Like the Sisters of Mercy before us, my colleagues and I strive to provide care where our patients live, with the highest standard of quality and compassion.”
Gamet has been serving Mercy in southwest Missouri for 23 years, most recently as administrator for both Mercy Hospital Cassville and Mercy Hospital Aurora. But she began her work at Mercy as a registered nurse at Mercy Hospital Springfield.
“When you’re a bedside nurse, you understand that patients’ needs come first,” Gamet said.
