These actions shape and mold the present into a future of which we can all be proud. As a working mother to five amazing children, I used to feel like volunteerism was something just outside of my grasp. Hindsight reveals that we all engage in simple, daily acts of giving, whether as a parent, friend, coworker, or neighbor. The offers of assistance provide me with a sense of belonging and a greater connection to my community and its members. I know together we can solve big problems, overcome challenges and reach out to our most vulnerable neighbors.
The Mendocino Coast Healthcare Foundation has a long history of supporting community and nonprofit organizations working determinedly for the health and wellness of our community.
We are fueled by the dedication of volunteers and supporters who share our vision for a thriving community. We are grounded in the determination and caring of individuals who contribute their unique skills to the greater good. Lynne Ryerson Baumgartner is one of these inspiring people.
Baumgartner, a registered nurse at Adventist Health Mendocino Coast, was born and raised in Modesto with a family history of medicine. Her father was an anesthesiologist, and by the age of 16, she knew nursing was her calling. At 16, Baumgartner walked into a nursing home and asked for a job.
She was hired immediately as a nursing aide, learning quickly with hands-on experience and from the wisdom of her mentors. After graduating inshe took her first RN job in Switzerland as a camp nurse for youth. Baumgartner speaks with utter gratitude for the opportunity to experience nursing and life from so many perspectives. It underlines the importance of her profession and the universal language of caring for someone in their time of need.
After meeting her husband in Oakland, Baumgartner and her husband had their first child and moved to Fort Bragg, where her husband bought the local dental practice. Since that time, she has called the coast her home, being hired in by Mendocino Coast District Hospital.
During her many years serving the coast, Baumgartner has worked in labor and delivery, the emergency room, outpatient surgery, ICU and many more — all while raising three kids! Baumgartner speaks to the unlimited calling of nursing and the depth of experience, expertise and commitment we are so lucky to have at our local healthcare facilities.
Stories like this are a continuous inspiration and recommitment for myself, the Mendocino Coast Healthcare Foundation and our Excellence in Nursing Initiative. The Excellence in Nursing Initiative supports our current nurses with funding for continued education to improve local capabilities and economic outcomes.
The initiative supports programs to help nurses and provides a suite of scholarships to grow our local workforce.
