Samantha Vega, RN

A registered nurse that has been part of the Memorial Healthcare System for more than 10 years, Samantha Vega transitioned to case manager in early 2020. “Working at the bedside was great, but I was intrigued and moved by our patient’s needs after they left the hospital and wanted to be sure they got everything they needed to thrive.”

A mother herself, Vega is a passionate advocate for children and is especially proud of the work she does helping kids and families with illnesses and limited resources. She works closely with social workers to navigate insurance issues, secure medications, and contact the appropriate companies to ensure her patient’s needs are met.

“I feel like we set them up for success and that’s what gives me the most satisfaction,” said Vega. “Our families are grateful that we’ve helped them get what they need and where they need to go.”
