INTEGRIS Baptist Medical Center is Oklahoma’s center for health care excellence. Their award-winning and nationally recognized hospital has a decades-long proven track record of providing an unsurpassed level of care that Oklahomans deserve, reaching beyond the walls of the Oklahoma City facility into the neighborhoods and communities that need them most. Challenging standards, exceeding expectations and building hope; this is what they are all about.
First of all, a big thank you to all of the doctors, nurses and medical staff at Integris Baptist Medical Center. All of them show the utmost professionalism and compassion that holds them to high standards. One particular nurse that to recognize is Stephanie Greenhoward, RN, BSN, CMSRN.
Born in Oklahoma City, OK, Stephanie knew when she was a little girl that she wanted to be a nurse when she grew up. “I always wanted to be a nurse because I wanted to be a part of making a difference in the lives of others and caring for them in difficult times in their lives,“ Stephanie said. “I have some family members in the medical field; a sister and some cousins that are nurses and I am sure that they influenced me to be a nurse in some way or another,” she added.
Stephanie went to Brown Mackie College for her associates in nursing and later went to South University for her Bachelors. Being a nurse reassures the fact that nursing was a real calling for her and she can’t image doing anything else. “My biggest reward as a nurse is knowing that I DO make a difference in someones life. I feel like I have certain qualities that a nurse needs to have; caring, empathy, good communication skills, loving without judging and selflessness. I try to live up these qualities each and everyday,” Stephanie commented. “If someone were interested in being a health care professional, I would tell them to continue on, make sure it was the one thing they felt a real need to do and above all, always take care of yourself.”
When asking Stephanie to describe herself, she replied, “I am a thirty-two year old army veteran, nurse, mother, wife, sister and friend. I enjoy spending time with my family, raising my children, and working at Integris Baptist with my work family. I am a leader and a follower. I lead to follow and follow to lead.”
“When it comes to being a nurse, I have been a nurse for four yeasr, all four years here. I love my job! My typical day consists of meeting my patients and developing a plan for the day in order to reach daily set goals. Once the relationship has been established, physical assessments and medications are performed and given. Throughout the day, I am assisting with daily living activities, education and advocating for my patients and their families. I’m also a charge nurse so I assist my team with their daily tasks when they are unable to complete them at different times throughout the day.”
On a personal level, Stephanie is married to a wonderful man and has four children and five bonus (step) babies. “I admit that my one hobby is sleeping,” she said with a smile.
“The biggest challenge I see here at the hospital is the shortage of nurses. One of my famous lines that I find myself saying a lot of the time is, ‘I got lives to save,’” Stephanie said. “As far as being a nurse? I wouldn’t have it any other way.” Stephanie’s life is not without recognition. Last year, she was recognized as Nurse of the Month for December 2020 and this year, she is Nurse of the Year for 2021. It’s no surprise considering the way Stephanie has a way of showing her kindness and love to everyone, as though radiating that comforting feeling to others when she is around, giving her time and attention to the patient.
How has the Coronavirus affected your life? “The Coronavirus has changed so many lives including my own. During the pandemic, I have been fortunate enough to remain virus-free while taking care of the patients in need. Extra precautions include making sure I’m wearing a mask at all times, even with family and friends.”
