Today we are joined by Michelle “Missy” Moorhead, MSN, for a lively discussion about why she is so passionate about the patient experience. We also discuss why excellent patient experiences matter today more than ever.

With Lee Health in Fort Meyers, Florida, Missy currently serves as Patient Experience and Engagement Specialist. The Healthcare Experience Matters Podcast is a weekly show dedicated to amplifying the voice of today’s leaders in shaping excellent patient experiences. 

We are very excited for this conversation with Missy. Her sincerity and passion for this line of work is contagious. She brings a wealth of clinical and patient experience expertise to the table.

When dealing with difficult circumstances, Missy reminds us to remain confident, calm, and compassionate. 

“When people are lashing out at you, it’s usually not personal. It’s usually because they’re coming from a place where they need us to help them and understand them as human. And really to exhibit love and compassion,” she told us.

This episode is a great listening experience for everyone striving to deliver excellent patient experiences. There are even some great nuggets for dog lovers as Missy describes the comfort and companionship that our furry friends have brought to patients over the years at Lee Health. 

At HXF, we are grateful to be able to serve as moderators for such an important conversation and we look forward to welcoming Missy back to the show with open arms in the future!
