HSHS Medical Group is pleased to award Tara Helfrich, APRN, with our October Provider of the Month Award. Tara is an advanced practice registered nurse at HSHS Medical Group Family Medicine in Fairview Heights, Illinois.
The Provider of the Month is chosen from nominations submitted by fellow HSHS Medical Group team members. Tara’s nominators said, “The respect Tara has for her colleagues is beyond amazing. She makes each and every one of us feel appreciated. She goes the extra mile without batting an eye or questioning the situation for both patients and colleagues alike.”
“I am just a small part of what makes a team successful,” Tara said. “I cannot express how thankful I am to be a part of a positive environment of caring individuals. We are fortunate enough to see patients at their worst and then rise to become their best. I am thankful to be a part of the success.”
Tara’s interests outside of medicine are racquetball, scuba diving, jeep riding, traveling and sitting on the beach. Tara reminds us all, “Be thankful, be kind, be respectful and enjoy a slice of pie!”
