When asked what she likes most about working at Audubon County Memorial Hospital & Clinics, Dr. Vampola had this to say: “I love the environment and being able to walk through the halls, knowing all of the employees. Also, the bond I have already created with so many patients and their families. I think our team excels with working well together. We communicate well and manage chronic care well. We are good at checking screenings and making sure people are up to date to promote better health care.”
