Today we commemorate Amber Bessette as she recently became a Nationally Certified Surgical Technician (NCST).

Amber joined Community Health Mettowee in April 2017 as our first phlebotomist. RRMC had decided to remove their off-site phlebotomist service to the community leaving Mettowee with the need for a blood draw station. She was instrumental in setting up the lab and assisting with the new workflow for scheduling lab patients.

Once she had this service working smoothly, Amber began to search for a new clinical challenge. At that time Community Health did not offer a Medical Assistant course, she was able to find this challenge through an online program. Amber quickly completed the course and gained her MA certification. She then joined the Provider Team nurses working with Mettowee’ s new physician who valued Amber’s input in getting oriented to Family Practice work and outpatient medical care. She was able to guide her provider while training her phlebotomy replacement at the same time. As always, she was a shining star with both her clinical skills and training thoroughness.

In 2021, during COVID, Amber went on to train as a Surgical Technician online. After extensive preparation and study, she took the surgical tech exam online last month and is now a certified Surgical Tech. With Amber’s intelligence and drive, the sky’s the limit. We are eager to see what challenge she decides to take on next.

The Mettowee team is quite proud of Amber and we are glad to count her as part of our family.
