Melinda Herrera recently joined Christian Health Care Center as its new admissions and community relations director.
Herrera works closely with CHCC’s management team, residents and their loved ones. Her primary duties include overseeing the admission process, communicating with Whatcom County health care providers and helping families during the discharge process.
