RICHMOND, Ind. – Carrie Rehmert, Reid’s November Ambassador, has been with Reid for 17 years. She is the lead CAT scan technologist in the Radiology Department. Besides assisting physicians and other staff, Carrie explains procedures to patients and helps them understand the test they are having.
She holds a bachelor’s degree in biology from the University of Toledo and completed radiology school at the St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center School of Radiology.
Nominators extol her kindness and caring towards patients and her willingness to help co-workers whenever needed.
“Carrie is always very positive and does a great job in communicating with patients and family members,” said a director. ”Carrie is able to connect with each of her patients and is always willing to help out,” said a supervisor. ”Carrie takes the care of her patients very personal and wants to give an excellent experience to each patient.”
Perhaps the best praise came from a patient, “Carrie Rehmert is an awesome person.”
Rehmert grew up in the New Madison, Ohio, area and graduated from Tri-Village High School. She and her husband, Brian, now make their home near Greenville, Ohio, with their son, Gavin, age four. Brian is the facilities manager for the Chenoweth Trails complex of the Matt Light Foundation. She is a volunteer for the Foundation and also the assistant basketball coach for Mississinawa High School. The family enjoys camping, watching Ohio State sports and, of course, supporting the New England Patriots.
She said she doesn’t mind the 40-minute commute from Greenville to Reid because she is passionate about helping people.
“It is a great feeling to make a difference in people’s lives,” said Rehmert.
