I live on the Rathdrum Prairie, north of Post Falls; we farm. I raised two daughters and now am blessed with five grandchildren. I have a 30-year career in public health laboratories; currently Microbiologist/Supervisor for a premier mining & environmental laboratory based in Kellogg, ID. I advocate for mental health and counseling services for adults and children. My goal is to help fill the enormous need for mental health services; mental health is part of physical health.

I have been married for 55 years, we have 3 children, 15 grandchildren, and 22 great-grandchildren. I have done secretary work all my working life. I was the bookkeeper for Jim Griffitts, at the Hayden Lake Golf Course Pro Shop. I now work at home for our part time business. I am a Genealogist and am on a Church Mission from my home, answering emails from all over the world, (English Language) I have done that for 6 + years. I serve on the Board because Ginger Seaman asked me years ago if I would be interested in being on the board. I, of course, said yes….I just want to give back to Heritage Health for what they have done for me.

Robert-(Tex)-Ritchie

Robert (Tex) Ritchie

 

I have dealt with Heritage Health since early in 2005. I received and continue to receive the very best health care from a “team” of health care professionals, from the doctors to the M.A.s, to the record keepers, to the phone operators to the line staff to the check in people at the front desk. They maintain an attitude of friendly, caring, respectful and professional service to each patient. Heritage is truly a “medical home” to me and thousands more here in Kootenai County. It’s not just a hi and bye. These people really care about the patients. I enjoy seeing the people who make up the Heritage Health staff. Even those who I seldom deal with are just the greatest people. I am always made to feel welcome.
