Human Resources Director joins Sioux Center health system

Theresa Tucker, PHR, has accepted the role of Director of Human Resources with the Sioux Center Community Hospital & Health Center Avera.

Theresa graduated from the University of South Dakota in Vermillion receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration with a specialization in Human Resources Management. She most recently served as Benefits Administrator for Terra Industries Inc. in Sioux City.

Theresa's primary responsibilities include building an environment that provides quality care to patients, continuing the development of a culture of learning throughout the organization, and continuing the development of the organization's position as the employer of choice throughout the region.

Her desire to work in a health care field began during high school. "Through working as a certified nurse aide in high school and doing a business internship in a hospital and clinic in college, I have wanted to work in a healthcare setting where people are directly making a difference in the lives of others every day," said Theresa.

The mission of the health system matches her own personal values and is the primary reason she chose to work for the Sioux Center Community Hospital & Health Center Avera.

"The organization's culture is evident when you first walk into the building where you find a friendly smile and an offer of assistance. The employees are very positive and welcoming as well as the people in the Sioux Center community."

Theresa and her husband Cory have one daughter, Kailee. They currently live in Akron, Iowa.
