We’re happy to introduce you to Lacey Precure, a clinical liaison who specializes in welcoming the pediatric patients into our facility. We’re beyond proud of this staff member, who is so skilled in making our young patients feel comfortable.
What is your job at TrustPoint?
“I am a clinical liaison. I help prepare patients to come to our facility. I often visit patients in the local hospitals and educate them on the process of coming to our facility as well as what to expect once they get here.”
What events lead you to where you are today, working at TrustPoint?
“I am always looking for new opportunities to further my career as an occupational therapist. I knew this job was a great opportunity for me to expand my experience into the inpatient rehabilitation setting. I have a strong love for pediatrics, which is where the majority of my experience has been in. I am happy to be a part of the expanding pediatric program and Trustpoint!”
What is one moment that has stood out to you while working at TrustPoint?
“We have ‘Code Marcy’s’ here. A ‘Code Marcy’ is when a patient is recognized for his or her progress and is leaving our hospital to return home. While the patient comes down the hall to leave, our employees clap for them to congratulate them in their accomplishments. Recently a gentleman was able to walk out of our hospital after suffering from a stroke. He was so moved by our support that he stopped 2-3 times and began to cry. I do not believe any employee had a dry eye. It is very moving to be part of such a wonderful transition for the patients during such a challenging time in their life.”
What do you most love about the work you do?
“Seeing the progress of the patients that come to our facility. Our therapists do a great job on helping our patients regain their independence.”
What kind of impact do you hope to have on people at TrustPoint?
“I want to help give patients hope. I enjoying being able to go meet our patients face to face and discuss what our facility can offer them. I want to give every patient hope and put them at ease during a difficult transition from a hospital to the beginning stages of their recovery after a life changing event.”
Can you tell us a little about you and your family?
“I have been married to my husband, Dustin, for three years. He is the IT director for Hockley County. We don’t have any kids but we have three nieces and two nephews that we love to spend time with. I also have one dog, a Boston terrier, named Duke. I have had him for 9 years. I love to travel, take pictures, and bake. Dustin and I also love the Dallas Stars and enjoy going to Dallas to watch them play.”
If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
“I would love to learn to Scuba dive or hang glide!”
If you were to tell one person “Thank you for helping me become the person I am today,” who would it be and what did they do?
“My parents. They have always helped and supported me through everything in my life. They have pushed me to be the best I can be.”
What is your favorite thing about Lubbock?
“My favorite place to eat is Jazz. I love Texas Tech and enjoy going to football games.”
What characteristic do you most admire about the people of Lubbock and its surrounding areas?
“I think everyone is friendly. It just feels like home to me.”
If you could tell the people that Trustpoint serves anything, what would it be?
“Trustpoint strives to serve our community as a whole in Lubbock. We do our best to treat a variety of diagnoses so that we can help as many people as we can. Also, we actively raise money for diabetes because it affects so many people in our community.”
