Mary Heath, Director of Special Projects, Training and Education at Pawnee Mental Health Services, is retiring after 25 years of service.
Mary was initially hired as an independent contractor to help Pawnee install its first electronic billing record in 1990. Over the years, she provided leadership with the implementation of several electronic billing or medical record systems at Pawnee, advised other community mental health centers on the implementation of their electronic systems, served on state committees and served as a member of the Pawnee Management Team.
Executive Director Robbin Cole said, “Unlike some positions, it’s not a simple thing to just fill Mary’s position. Mary has the status she does because of her longevity with the organization, her experience, her competence and her dedication.” Mary’s last day will be December 31, 2015.
Pawnee Mental Health Services is a licensed community mental health center and licensed substance abuse treatment center serving more than 7,500 people annually in ten counties in north central Kansas.
