Griffin Concierge Medical Welcomes A Nurse to the Team
In May, David McGovern, RN, joined our medical team. David comes to Griffin Concierge Medical from St. Anthony’s Hospital in St. Petersburg. He has been working as an acute care nurse since 2011.
“In acute care, the idea was to fix patients, discharge them and never see them again,” says David. “I’m excited to be joining Griffin Concierge Medical because I will have on-going relationships with my patients.”
He pointed out that especially in a hospital setting, nurses are critical in helping patients have a positive experience.
“As a nurse, I really believe it’s important to show compassion and empathy toward patients,” he says. “It’s how you build a good relationship—one founded on trust.”
At Griffin Concierge Medical, David will triage patient calls, take vitals, monitor care in and out of the office, handle prior authorizations for medications, and send in prescription refills, just to name a few duties.
