Integrity Healthcare of Herrin – Location

At an early age Liza Dunn knew she was meant to care for other people.  Her dreams have come true, and she is currently the Administrator of Integrity Healthcare of Herrin. Liza began her career as a Candy Striper at a local hospital.  At the age of sixteen, she was offered the position as an aide. She continued working in healthcare as she attended college.  She has been an administrator in long term healthcare for the past twenty-nine years, admitting that the last three years have been the most challenging because of the Covid pandemic.

Liza has gained insight and perspective as she has experienced firsthand the many changes in long term care.  From an acute care structured setting to a person centered home like environment, Liza has embraced the changes.

Liza enjoys her residents.  She loves decorating her facility.  She enjoys planning seasonal and holiday decorations and themed parties for staff and residents.

With three adult sons and their wives, Liza proudly describes how her entire family either works in healthcare or volunteer in many ways including work as police and firefighters, to give back to their communities.  She has taught them well.

The staff at Integrity Healthcare of Herrin say they appreciate the facts that Liza will get on the floor and work with them if it is needed; that she leads by doing; and that she is sincerely caring for the residents.  Liza creates a big family environment, and it shows.

April Russell is an LPN and is the MDS Coordinator at Integrity Healthcare of Herrin.  She has been an LPN since 2011 and has worked at IHC Herrin for the last two years.  She loves her job!

April is always dressed in the appropriate uniform unless the building is celebrating a holiday or having a special themed party.  Then you are likely to find her in a scarecrow costume, a red clown nose or a  hula skirt!  She plays these parts to help entertain the residents.  They love it and they love her.

Coworkers appreciate April because she is willing and capable of doing many things in the facility.  She doesn’t ask others to do things she wouldn’t do herself.  That is a leadership style which is sometimes unusual.

In addition to her jobs as wife, mother and LPN, April is a volunteer firefighter and a licensed emergency medical responder.  It would not be uncommon to find her at an emergency scene in the region.  April says she doesn’t get scared in those emergency situations.  She says there is just something inside of you that urges you to do the job necessary.  That’s strength.

Family is important to this mother of six and grandmother of two.  Sports including bask

etball, track and travel softball are important parts of their lives.  The travel involved in these leagues makes it all the more fun for the family.

April’s r

esidents are part of her family, too.  She works hard to establish a special rapport with each one of them.  Understanding them and closely communicating with them is essential to providing the best possible care.
