She lives in Wolsey and has five children: Taylor, age 25, Lanessa, age 20, Carson, age 13, Grayson, age 11, and Maxon, age 8. In her spare time, she enjoys cheering on her children in their various sporting events and activities.

Goergen, who has worked at HRMC for nearly 29 years and served in various leadership roles, most recently served as the director of the HRMC Birthing Center. In her new role, she is responsible for the patient services division, including all inpatient and outpatient nursing services as well as HRMC emergency services advanced practice providers.

“The fact that we had two very strong leaders emerge from within our organization is an affirmation we have very talented and dedicated team members who make us better each and every day,” said Larson. “I am convinced we could not find individuals who are a better fit, or more qualified, to help us achieve our goals of becoming a world class organization than Amy Goergen or Destiny Finn.”
