For 114 years, King’s Daughters has made a commitment to our community, not only by caring for our patients, but also by providing a place to build careers.

In this latest round of stories, we meet operating room nurse Sally Wenning, who talks about how King’s Daughters has provided careers for generations of her family, starting with her mother who worked here as a nurse in the 1970s. Today, Sally’s sister, three daughters and son-in-law all have careers at the medical center.

We also see how King’s Daughters allows young people in our community to realize their dreams through the story of childhood friends Nichole Stamper and James Rice, who from an early age knew they wanted to pursue careers in medicine. Both grew up in Russell, Ky., and Nichole now works as a nurse educator while James went on to become an orthopaedic spine surgeon.

Finally, we hear about a key element that has been a huge part of King’s Daughters’ success over the century — quality. Cardiologist and Electrophysiologist John VanDeren, M.D., talks about our quality ratings that make us a leader in healthcare in not only the region, but the nation.
