Glenda Cronan is the administrative assistant for the Administration Department at Northside Hospital-Forsyth. She has worked in the health care field for 44 years and began her career in 1972 at the now Cherokee Campus, formerly R.T. Jones Memorial Hospital. In 2005, she transferred to the Northside Hospital-Forsyth campus.
When Glenda was 8-years-old, her father and hero was injured in a farm accident. Although his injuries were not serious, they were serious to Glenda, who was so grateful to the hospital staff for taking care of her father during his overnight stay.
“I was so thankful that the hospital had made my father better and that I was going to be able to spend many more years with him,” Glenda said. “That is when I decided I wanted to work in a hospital.”
She said she enjoys coming to work at Northside and seeing the pride the hospital staff display in doing their work.
“I just love doing what I do and working with the people at Northside.”
