Spotlight: Madison Platt, Medical Lab Scientist
Meet Madison Platt, a Medical Laboratory Scientist at Alomere Health. Having grown up in Alexandria, Madison Platt was happy to return home to build a career.
As much as Madison enjoyed attending South Dakota State University in 2013, she was undecided on a degree focus. Fortunately, SDSU offered classes that helped Madison understand her natural skills. They were able to identify “Lab Technician” as a profession suited to her talents and disposition—and that resonated with Madison, “I have always wanted a career that helps other people.” Further into her degree, she was able to get an internship sponsored by the Alomere Health Foundation. The experience working in the lab convinced her that she had chosen the right career.
After graduation, Madison’s first job was at a large health system in St. Cloud, Minnesota. But after one and a half years, she and her soon-to-be-husband, Josh, desired to live in a smaller town. She found and applied for the newly opened position at Alomere as the Medical Lab Scientist. “Coming from a bigger facility, I was really excited to get back to a small town feel. Alomere has the quality of care found in a large city, with all of the benefits of living in a small community.”
I’ve been at Alomere for two and a half years now, I’m feel like I am always learning new things. At Alomere we serve The Emergency Department, Intensive Care Units, The Surgery Center, The Birth Place, and all of the clinics—there is always a lot of variety.
