Director of Nursing
Director of Nursing Patty Fitzgerald began working at Southview in 1977 as a nursing assistant on the Senior Communities’ nursing home side. Patty earned her Associate Degree from Inver Hills Community College in 1983 and completed her Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Bethel University in 2008. She has also worked as a staff nurse and a clinical manager, and she managed both a long-term care unit and a memory care unit.
Patty’s mother and role model worked as a nurse, so Patty understood at a young age the level of compassion and care required in caring for the elderly. Today, she loves being part of a team that delivers emotional and physical support to seniors while helping them maintain their independence.
Helping seniors navigate the challenges of aging with courage and dignity is satisfying work for Patty. She enjoys hearing stories from the residents of all the things they have learned in their lives. That connection is what builds trusting relationships and makes a difference for the residents and for Patty.
I wanted to drop you a note to express my appreciation for everything you did to make for such a smooth transition for our Mother. I have been sharing our experience with my friends and family. You are very caring and conscientious an your ability to make someone feel so "at home" in such a short period of time is a special gift that you have. Thank you again for making this transition such a smooth one!– Pat
