We were delighted that two of our staff members, NP Linnea Matthews and LVN Maria Bermudez, recently received Charlene McAllister Excellence in Nursing Awards from the Mendocino Coast Healthcare Foundation. And we were thrilled that they were presented by Charlene McAllister herself.

Linnea is one of MCC’s most beloved providers. She celebrated the 40th anniversary of her nursing career in 2019, becoming a nurse practitioner about 25 years ago. Linnea specializes in geriatric care and women’s health.
Maria started at MCC as an MA. becoming a CMA and then an LVN. When COVID struck, Maria stepped up immediately to join our dedicated COVID team, doing testing and vaccines. Maria was recently promoted to Nurse Manager, responsible for supervising all of MCC’s nursing staff.
Congratulations to Linnea and Maria! We are so proud of your hard work and dedication in taking the #bestcareanywhere
of our patients!
