Methodist Fremont Health Respiratory Therapist Inspires With Positive, Colorful Bulletin Boards

Published: June 28, 2021

Bob Misfeldt's job as a respiratory therapist at Methodist Fremont Health lets him use his creativity to help others see the writing on the wall — in the most positive sense — something especially poignant during the COVID-19 pandemic.

It began about 10 years ago, when departments were asked to post customer service scores and numbers of procedures along with projects.

“We went down to the basement and found a bulletin board and put it up,” said Misfeldt, who has been at the hospital for 33 years and also serves as diagnostic coordinator for the cardiopulmonary department. “For a while, it was simply data. Over the years, we started making it more about affirmation and positivity.”

During the peak of the pandemic, he created a brightly colored bulletin board with statements such as, “In case no one has told you today, Hello! You belong here. We believe in you. You’re doing great! We can’t do this without you.”
