Leanna Hedeen, RN, MDS Coordinator

A little about me-I joined the Bethesda team in February of 2017 as an MDS coordinator. I worked in the dietary department here for a short time when I was in High School which started my interest in healthcare and love of the field. I have been working as a RN since 2010. I grew up in Beresford and after a short time away moved back with my family. My husband Keith and our 3 children-Easton, Mckenzie and Mathew live on an acreage outside of Beresford. We have 1 dog and 3 chickens.
