Bumgarner Named Passavant Colleague of the Month for April

Cheryl Bumgarner, a clinic assistant at Passavant Industrial Rehab, is the Passavant Area Hospital Colleague of the Month for April.

Bumgarner, of Jacksonville, is known for her can-do attitude, hospital officials said. She said she takes great pride in “making sure every person entering our doors knows that they are going to be treated with respect and compassion the way I would want my family to be treated.”

The past year has been a challenge for everyone in healthcare, Bumgarner’s nominator said, pointing out that Bumgarner met the challenge and maintained a positive attitude for each patient and visitor to the office.

“Many of our patients have been coming to the Jacksonville clinic for years, and the recent changes [due to the COVID-19 pandemic] have been difficult for them to navigate,” Rachel Merideth, physical therapist at Passavant Industrial Rehab, said. “Cheryl ensures our patients feel cared for, valued and accommodated each and every time they walk in the door.”

Bumgarner and her husband, Mark, have three grown children. She enjoys gardening and playing cards with friends and family.
