Mount Nittany Health is honored to have an incredible team of employees who provide compassionate, excellent clinical care and extraordinary service each day. Chris Killinger, LPN, Mount Nittany Physician Group Cardiology/Nephrology, is a shining example of a team member who continually goes above and beyond for her patients and fellow team members.

“Teamwork is critical because great patient care begins with great teamwork.”

Recently, Chris was working when she witnessed a colleague coughing and choking as they were eating lunch. Chris quickly intervened and performed the Heimlich maneuver to remove the food stuck in the individual’s throat. Her swift action saved the individual’s life. Chris’s fellow team member was grateful for her rapid reaction and commitment to safety.

Chris has also been praised for her willingness to go above and beyond in her duties as a licensed practical nurse, often taking on additional tasks to support her colleagues and ensure that patients receive the highest quality care possible. Her fellow team members have noted that she is a true team player, always willing to lend a hand and provide guidance to those who need it. Her dedication to teamwork has had a significant impact on the overall success of her department, and she serves as an inspiration to others in the organization who strive to work collaboratively and achieve their goals through cooperation and mutual support.

Mount Nittany Health would like to applaud Chris for her commitment to excellence and for providing exceptional clinical care.
