Family Connections: The Buchanans
  • Mother-in-law: Jannetta Buchanan, Epic Cupid/Radiant Analyst
  • Daughter-in-law: Nancy Buchanan, Pre-Op/PACU/Post-Op Nurse Educator


What do you like about working with your daughter-in-law? It is a joy to meet up with Nancy for lunch when rounding at the hospital. With our busy schedules, it is nice to catch up on the little things. It, too, has been great being able to see how Nancy has advanced her nursing career at Valley Health. Our work paths do cross, and it’s reassuring to know I can reach out at any time for her assistance.

Why did you choose Valley Health? It was close to where I live and has given me several opportunities for advancement through the years.


What do you like about working with your mother-in-law? I love working near Jannetta because we have such a close bond. My daughter also has such a close connection with Jannetta, and seeing them together brings me so much happiness. Having a family member near is very comforting. Our roles occasionally allow us to cross paths and already having that connection makes collaboration wonderful!

Why did you choose Valley Health? I chose Valley Health because several of my family members work here, it was close to my house, and I knew they had competitive pay.

Work With Family

At Valley Health, we are looking for passionate, innovative, and caring people who will each bring their unique skills and perspectives to our workplace. We believe our exceptional team members are the foundation of our culture and key to our success at providing safe, high-quality care with high reliability.

We encourage our caregivers to invite their family, friends and network of dedicated colleagues to work (and perhaps live) in a community like ours. We offer an expanded employee referral bonus program which includes a $1,000 and up to $5,000 bonus (depending on position) for BOTH the referring employee AND the new hire being referred.
