Peg Helget, Set to Retire, Passes the Torch at Methodist Jennie Edmundson

Published: Sept. 6, 2022

Peg Helget will soon be leaving Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital.

She’s not a patient, though — she’s vice president of patient services and chief nursing officer. She plans to retire on Sept. 16 after about 14 years at the hospital.

Helget came to Jennie in 2008 as vice president of patient services and has helped integrate the hospital into Nebraska Methodist Health System practices.

Helget will be passing the torch to Jenene VandenBurg, who has had multiple leadership roles. The two have worked together for about 12 years, and Helget has been a mentor to VandenBurg for much of that time.
