The health and well-being of our patients, residents and team members is our number one priority. Despite many of the counties in which we operate beginning to re-open, per the Departments of Health, Concordia is still operating under a no visitation policy, except for patients/residents in end-of-life situations. However, those wishing to see their loved ones can schedule time with them at one of our safe visitation areas. Please call your loved one's facility for more information. For information regarding Concordia’s coronavirus precautions and cases, please click here. We have also began publishing regular video devotions from our Chaplains.

My Concordia Career: Jamie Gallagher’s Story

December 20, 2018

The Concordia Team is comprised of many talented and compassionate employees who have graciously served our mission in a variety of ways – and we are excited for you to meet these fantastic individuals!

Let us introduce you to Jamie Gallagher, Director of Operations for Good Samaritan Hospice (GSH). Jamie began her Concordia Career in 2012 as the Inpatient Unit Manager at GSH’s Cabot location and later transitioned into the Assistant Director prior to being named Director of Operations. Jamie earned her Registered Nurse diploma from West Penn Hospital’s School of Nursing. She is currently enrolled in Robert Morris University’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing program.

Jamie BurkeJamie describes Concordia as “a legacy,” and shared many reasons why she chooses to work for our organization:

“My personal values align perfectly with the mission and vision of Concordia. My values include to serve well-serve God, value employees, improve quality, treat each patient and employee as an individual, promote open communication, and financial stewardship. I strive to work harmoniously with everyone who I come in contact with.”

Jamie’s favorite Concordia memories are those made each year at Camp Erin Pittsburgh, where she serves at the camp nurse. Camp Erin Pittsburgh, a bereavement camp for children and teens who have lost a significant person in their life, pairs traditional summer camp activities with grief education and peer support. The camp is a partnership between Good Samaritan Hospice, The Moyer Foundation and YMCA Camp Kon-O-Kwee Spencer.

When Jamie isn’t working, volunteering, or hitting the books, you would likely find her and her family enjoying their river house in East Brady. During the day they enjoy boating, water skiing, tubing, and jet skiing and follow the water sports with relaxing evenings around the camp fire!

Jamie said that she is motivated to succeed by change:

“I find change invigorating and consider myself a change agent. My passion for change is fueled by viewing it as fresh opportunity to learn, improve and grow.”

We are thankful to have Jamie as part of the Concordia Family, and we can attest that she is a change agent! Her positivity and zest is an inspiration, and it has been a pleasure to watch her grow in Leadership throughout the years.

We’d love to hear your future story! Find your next career by visiting www.concordiacareers.org.
