Blast from the past
When Rondine Mehling worked here as a nurse, she preferred the night shift. For more than 30 years she cared for patients after the sun had set. She's retired now, but continues to work in the shadows – the shadows of the past. She is involved in our Hennepin Medical History Center, a small museum with the big task of preserving the history of Hennepin County Medical Center. "The history of this institution is absolutely amazing," she said. "We must always remember we are standing on the shoulders of those who came before us." At the History Center, Rondine works behind-the-scenes doing research, cataloging items, and preparing exhibits. She dedicated her career to our patients and families and continues to find ways to give back. Experience our History Center in the lower level of Blue Building.
