Laura Winch

RN, Clinical Nurse Supervisor

Laura brings positivity and energy to our residents, staff, and families at Ridgeway on German, and she thrives working as part of a team to ensure the residents receive the best care possible. Laura started her nursing career in long term care, and then worked in a rural hospital primarily on the medical-surgical floor but assisted in many different areas including OB, ER, and Infusion Therapy, and then much to Ridgeway’s benefit, found her way back to long term care. “I realized early on in my nursing career that Geriatrics is my passion which led me to Ridgeway. I thoroughly enjoy caring for and developing relationships with each resident and their families.”
