Please joins us in welcoming two new members to the Dankmeyer patient care team! Kristen Beltran and Kevin Hughes recently joined Dankmeyer in different capacities.
Kristen is our new Resident Prosthetist Orthotist. Kristen first became interested in P&O in high school, where she had a soccer coach who wore a prosthesis. While working in the therapeutic recreation field in Denver, CO, Kristen worked with adaptive sports and recreation programs. She comes to us after completing her Master’s in Prosthetics and Orthotics from Northwestern University. Like all Residents, she will spend some time refining her fabrication skills before you see her in the exam room!
Kevin is our Patient Navigator, a newly-created role that will help to facilitate our Long Term Patient Care initiatives. Kevin is the go-to person for Dankmeyer's patients. He helps guide our patients through all phases of their care plans, providing assistance and connecting our patients with resources, to ensure the timely delivery of their treatments and follow-up care. Kevin also administers patient education to ensure a thorough understanding of the use and care of orthotic and prosthetic devices and to increase health literacy for our patients with chronic conditions. Kevin is grateful to refocus his attention on a rewarding mission of patient care, after a long term consulting career with Fortune 100 companies.
