Becky Fleischmann Retires After 45 Years With HCHS

Harlan County Health System (HCHS) would like to congratulate Becky Fleischmann as she is retiring after 45 years of employment. She has seen many changes over the years. When Becky started in November of 1971, she had never heard of a hard drive, CD, Dell, etc., as there were no computers. She recalled the first computer being installed in the business office in the late 70’s. To prepare for the computer age, Becky traveled to the Phillipsburg, KS, Great Plains Health Alliance (GPHA) office to input the necessary information. Once the computer was installed and the information entered, accounts receivable charges were processed as batches.
Becky became very knowledgeable in her computer skills and processing, that with the passing of LaDonna Robison in 1989, Curtis Erickson, Executive Director from GPHA asked Becky to help with administrative duties on a temporary basis, with his help, until a new administrator was hired. Becky was relieved of those duties when a new administrator was hired in 1992.
“During my 45.5 years at HCHS, I’ve had a number of different responsibilities in the business office, of which I have learned a great deal. Even through good and difficult times, I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at HCHS. I have also had the opportunity to meet so many nice people throughout my career,” stated Becky.
HCHS wishes Becky a very happy and healthy retirement! You will be missed!
