DONEDA SWENSON is recognized as the Bates County Memorial Hospital Employee of the Month for February, 2020. Doneda began her employment in November, 2015. As a Nuclear Medicine Technologist, Doneda has more than 30 years of experience in the field.

The hospital is proud to honor Doneda as Employee of the Month.
