EDGEWOOD — Evelyn Hitch is dedicated to her staff and patients at St. Elizabeth Heart and Vascular Center in Edgewood. That’s part of the reason she was voted Kenton County’s Best Boss.

“She chooses to serve rather than be served and never expects or wants recognition or reciprocity,” wrote Jessica Morris in Hitch’s nomination. “This is her time to know how much our office really appreciates her and what she does for us as an efficient cardiology office.”

When talking about her role as practice manager, Hitch talks more about her staff of 19 associates, five physicians and seven nurse practitioners at three different locations rather than talking about herself.

“Maybe this award is a reflection of this great staff and how well we work together. It’s a great company. It’s just a good place to work. Everyone jumps in and does what they need to do,” she said. “Everyone is cross-trained, so when something needs to be done, there are people ready to do it.”

Hitch has been manager of the practice for eight years, since before St. Elizabeth Physicians took over in 2011.

Describing herself as a leader, Hitch said she’s not afraid to innovate and encourages creativity and humor among her coworkers.

“We’re not afraid to try something new,” she said. “They’re smart people, so I’ll listen to their suggestions. They’re very creative. Together we inject fun and humor into our jobs.”

Hitch said she and her staff share the company’s mission of providing the best possible care for their patients.

“It’s all about the staff. They’re phenomenal,” she said. “They’re so dedicated to what they do. We strive for excellence and work together as a team. That’s just what we do.”
