Dr. Lisbeth Jordan has always been driven to improve health and health care. Not just at home in Bellevue, Washington, but around the globe.
She has been able to follow her passion and do meaningful work in several developing countries. But when she was working as a private practice physician, the intangible rewards she gained through service to others came at a cost to her clinic.
Now an Ob Hospitalist Group clinician, Jordan can not only set her own schedule and spend more time with her family - but she can volunteer without the stress and anxiety that comes with leaving a business unattended.
In recent years she has traveled to Serra Grande, Brazil to help build sustainable health and education initiatives in partnership with the local community. This year she served as team lead for a project aimed at educating and empowering the area's teenage girls.
Each quarter, Ob Hospitalist Group employees nominate teammates who have gone above and beyond to demonstrate the company's core values.

It was my third trip to the hospital that day.
I had a few patients in labor to check on and while I was there, I was called to the ER due to the premature delivery of non-viable twins.
Luckily the deliveries were uncomplicated, but any time there’s a pregnancy loss, attention to the emotional must accompany the physical care of a patient.
And so you answer questions asked between tears. You express your mutual grief. You provide resources and you encourage use of available support. While you can’t take away her pain, you give all that you have.
