UPHS – Bell Employee Spotlight: Ruth Thibault

What is your title with UPHS-Bell?   

Business Office Director

What drew you to Bell?  

I love the Bell family environment.

What is a typical day for you?  

There are always the routine tasks such as Sox audits and accounts receivable management, but the day usually brings some sort of challenge.  That is part of the attraction of the job,  there is never a dull moment.

People would be surprised if they knew:   

I was voted National Office Manager of the Year way back when.  I won’t tell you the year as it will certainly reveal how old I am.  I was featured in an article in Medical Economics and Modern Healthcare. 

Tell us about your family.  

I have two children, a daughter and a son, and 6 grandchildren.   I am fortunate that both of my children live in Ishpeming along with all but 1 of my grandchildren.  I also have two furry kids.  One is a 10-year-old Yorkie, and the other is a 1-year-old very challenging Golden Doodle.

Name something on your bucket list.   

I would love to do a road trip up the Eastern seaboard.  Not in hurricane season of course.

What aspect of your role do you enjoy the most? 

I take pride in being part of the success of Bell Hospital.  I actually grew up across the street from the old hospital, so it just seems like Bell has always been a part of my life.
