Deborah Kellerman

(Pinckneyville, IL) Longtime Program Director for the Senior Life Solutions Program at Pinckneyville Community Hospital, Deborah Kellerman, announced she will be retiring at the end of June 2024. Kellerman states:

“I have served this community for 49 years in various positions and have loved each place my journey has taken me. Pinckneyville Hospital just seems like home to me. I began my journey 51 years ago as a volunteer candy striper in the summer of 1973. In June of 1975, I took the position as an aide and worked med/surg and O.B. In 1978, I worked as an LPN in the Skilled Care Unit of the hospital as a charge/ med nurse. In 1980, I received my RN license and took the position as Director of Nurses for the Skilled Care Unit. During this time, I also took on the role of Quality Assurance Coordinator for 2 years for the Hospital and Skilled Care Unit. From 1993 to 2003, I worked as a Home Health Nurse and Supervisor for the Perry County Health Department. In May of 2001, I completed my BSN. From 2003 to 2008, I returned to PCH and worked as a home health nurse for a couple years, and later transferred back to the Skilled Care Unit. I left the hospital again when Skilled Care closed. From 2008 to 2010, I worked as a Hospice Nurse for VNA Tip, and later took on the role of supervisor for the hospice programs in Jackson and Perry County. In 2011, I returned to the hospital to work in acute care and E.R. In October 2011, I accepted the position of Program Director for the new behavioral health program-Senior Life Solutions. I have worked at Senior Life Solutions since its inception in 2011 through 2024. Of the 49 years of employment, I have served 36 years at PCH. I have been blessed to be a part of the history of PCH. I want to thank all the people I have worked with over the years. It has been an honor to serve this community with such dedicated people.”
