Denise Collins, Service Line Coordinator at Outer Banks Internal Medicine, is The Outer Banks Hospital’s July, 2018 Employee of the Month. Collins joined TOBH in March of 2007 as a member of the Admissions team.

Collins, a long term and loyal team member, rises to the daily challenges of the unexpected and creates a seamless work flow for the busy practice. As the face of the front office, she balances the needs of patients, physical logistics of the office, and dynamics of her team members with a warm and welcoming smile.

Collins goes the extra mile to make Internal Medicine a better place by treating patients as family and remembering birthdays or special events with a baked good or card. She knows and treasures their stories. This year, Collins has taken on even more responsibilities, with various reporting duties and being a resource for other medical groups and practices. She is an excellent example of our values in action.

After receiving the honor, Collins stated, “Having been with TOBH/OBMG for over 11 years, I have seen many changes. The one thing that doesn’t change, however, is our commitment to the medical needs of the community and its many visitors.” She continued, “I am proud to be part of a team of professionals that remains dedicated to that commitment. Thank you to my work family for your nominations and thank you OBH/OBMG for the award.”
