Northwest Women's Consultants
It was with many shared stories, laughs, and not a few tears that the NWWC staff and physicians celebrated the retirement of sonographer Sue Kent last night at Westwood Tavern in Schaumburg, Illinois.
Sue has been an integral part of NWWC for the past 31 years.
Her caring nature and invaluable ultrasound skills were recognized, having contributed so much to women's health care for our local community.
We at NWWC will miss Sue very much and we wish her the best in her retirement.
Sue Kent retires after 31 years of service at NWWC.
It is with a heavy heart that our Northwest Women's Consultant's Family must announce that Dr. Sarah Shook will be moving back to her home state of Michigan.
Her husband, also a physician, has landed a dream job opportunity and thus Dr. Shook will be following suit in mid-December.
While Dr. Shook is very sad to leave Northwest Women's Consultants, she is looking forward to being closer to her family and will be joining a practice in the Metro Detroit area.
Please join us in wishing her the best of luck with her future endeavors on her new adventure back home.
