In this week’s edition of Five Question Friday, we stopped by Children’s Minnetonka campus to get to know Sarah Hromatka, BSN, RN – BC, who is a west staff nurse in the special diagnostics department. Our Children’s Minnetonka campus offers a wide range of services including surgery, radiology/diagnostic imaging, endocrinology/diabetes, ENT, gynecology, neurosurgery, audiology, and physical, occupational and speech therapies for families in the west metro. Read more to hear why Sarah loves being a part of the Children’s team – and the unique job she’d want if she didn’t love it here so much!
How long have you worked at Children’s?
I have been at Children’s for 12 years.
What do you love most about your job?
I love the people I work with and the variety of patients we care for at Children’s Minnetonka. We have a great team and work well together. We have fun while we work.
What do you think makes kids amazing?
Kids are amazing because they are honest, playful and uninhibited. They are often upfront and let us know what they are thinking and feeling. It makes our job always interesting and entertaining.
If you weren’t working in medicine, what do you think you’d be doing?
I would deliver flowers. I enjoy arranging flowers, and people usually love getting flowers. I would love to be a part of making people’s days a little brighter and happier as I bring them their fresh-cut arrangement.
What’s one interesting fact about you?
After college, my husband and I took a road trip to Alaska. We spent two months traveling around the state and visiting the various cities, mountains and glaciers. We tent camped for our whole trip. We also hiked the historic Chilkoot trail, a 33-mile hike along the Klondike Gold Rush route from the 1890s. It was an amazing experience with historical sites dotting the path along the trail.
