Meet Jana Elliker, DO, she is a child and adolescent psychiatrist, and has a desire to learn about how different backgrounds and experiences shape people.
I chose to come work at Ch Katie because I was really struck by all the personalities I met on the interview and I really enjoyed every person that I met. And I realize it's also going to be a very dynamic environment for me to keep learning after training. So I'm from the area and Ch Katie has always been well known for top pediatric care, like any family members or friends. I know that I've had treatment here have had a positive experience. But above all else, it's a, it's a fun place, which is important when you're treating kids just even walking in the lobby, walking through the hospital floors. It's decorated in different themes that I think is really fun for kids, especially to help them feel safe and comfortable during some tough times for them. I had heard about the project, some from friends and families, sending me links and articles. And once I really read through all of the things that were being planned, I was so impressed and so excited that my hometown was gonna finally have services that we need. And it's not just for this area but the whole state, because there's really a big need for mental health services around here.
